My parents have owned their 1991 Nissan 240SX since new, and today my dad called: Do I still want it? So tomorrow I get to see my parents and pick up my "new" car.

I just entered the SCCA track day at Sebring June 1st. Guess I should order some brake pads, huh?

7 years of my racing life was in an s13 coupe. Great cars that can be a lot of fun. You'll certainly need pads for a track day. Heck, I was getting brake fade on stock pads at autocrosses

Good question. Brake pads and a check-up before next weekend's track day. After that, let's see how it does.

Blimey, that looks clean.

Don't sticker it up or add too much camber .

Cool! I love cars with 100% known history. How far do you have to go to get it?

probably the only way to get a 240sx for both a sensible price and one that isn't absolutely destroyed

Also go KA24DE+T, SR20 is the most overrated garbage ever.

Wow, I haven't seen one of those in that kind of shape since the 90's! Nice score! I assume it has a manual transmission?

Mad tyt3 dorifto potential yes, but these are also fantastic highway commuter cars. I wanted one dearly when I was driving 35 miles each way with zero traffic on the highway.

Rode in one once, was very impressed by the interior of all things. Cool HUD, leather, very sporty.

In reply to stan_d:

I was just mentioning to someone that I had a beat up S13 that I was using to donate parts, but will slap leaf springs and a cheap V8 in it...

Wow that is in amazing shape. I'd be inclined to leave it stock since there are so few clean ones like that left.
