Hey guys, I'd just like to show you my baby. Shes far from where I want her to be, but at least I have made some great progress. I got my 1990 Nissan 240SX for $400 from some guy's wife who treated it like a total piece of ish; in the back seat I found a maxi pad, some dog Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation smashed into the seat, salt grains dug into the carpet, a bunch of (hot) wires laying around, running around on 3 cylinders, overheating, stock alloy rims replaced with 13'(?) steelies, left taillight broken, but it was all (fairly) worth it because the body was in great condition.

It was crap before but soon after I bought it, I swapped out the motor for the same kind, just that the new one had a manual tranny and wasn't overheating. It has gone through a VERY thorough cleaning of the interior and a few brand new bits here and there to make it look decent.

Here are a couple of pictures I took awhile back:























Soon enough I will be buying a more powerful motor, either the 4 cyl 2.0 liter SR20DET or the 4 cyl 1.8 liter CA18DET. It will go through a huge makeover, probably receiving a charcoal gray paint job, lowering springs or full on coilovers, and possibly carbon fiber body parts. It will be primarily a drift car, but if money can't hold up, I might just stick with drag racing.

Cool
