I really like the 240sx, they were my dream car until I discovered the awesomeness of the RX7. The part I don't like is that they pretty much need a motor swap, and that's a bit of a hassle. Granted you can put practically any motor in there though. The S13 coupe with the JDM front end is sweet looking though.

Kouki's are my favorite. Something just menacing about the headlights. I probably wouldnt own one, only japanese car i can even think of owning is an FD.

One of the sickest vehicles I've ever seen on the road is a Sil80. I see this exact car on base most days.My link . This thing is probably the only 240 I would want to have!

Given my bias, when I first saw this I was thinking a different 240 . . .

I like the S13 if they're done right, I'm helping my friend rebuild his KA24, that went out before my 13B...

^This. My friend has a black 240 and the car is amazing. I like how it's very low to the ground, I feel like im one with the ground.. lol. I also feed like the turning on the vehicle is sooooo nice. Also smooth ride!

I loved my S14. Had an SR20DET swap with JWT S3 cams and tons of other mods I had worked on with it. Some kid just HAD to have it, so I sold it. I always wanted an FD anyways... Now I'm going through the initial pains of undoing the previous owner's mistakes all over again!!!

I dont mind the 240s, especially if done right.

Peters car is a great example of what I can find myself liking about a 240




and his old 240


I do prefer the FD though. Rims, cut with a nice polisher and stance change and you have one rocking machine.
