Nissan 240

Not trying to start a fight here. What is it that all of you guys see in them? It seems like instead of civics and integras everyone is buying a 240. Most of them are falling apart, have 5 different color body panels, are slow and look like crap. After some of you guys put 10k in it sure they look and perform great, but its still an old 240. I'm just curious, is there something i'm missing?

I've gone over this so many times but long story short is they are fairly cheap to be had ($4k or under or so), RIDICULOUS amounts of aftermarket, can handle amazingly for cheap, can be FAST for cheap, and to top it off they are light rwd cars, so you can do just about anything with it. (drifting, drag racing, auto-x, road racing, whatever). Thats about it. Plus the sexy factor, they are just pretty. And mines not multi colored or falling apart, fyi.

I think its just like hondas,you have some die hard honda fans who build there cars clean and make them fast.Then there are some that are just jumping on the band wagon.Same deal with the 240's.

i'll put it in some simple words....

a well put together 240 is easily more fun to drive than my vette.

I guess whatever floats your boat. I don't dislike them but just wondering why over the past year it seems like everyone has bought one.

well that's a fad....

some of us have owned them for a longggggg time.

i'm without one right now, but i think the guys that are really into them have been around awhile. the guy that are suddenly getting into them are moreso doing it because they're the cool car to have nowadays.

Yea you can tell the guys that have had them for a while and know everything about them. I just dislike the young kids trying to slide around every turn on the road and then tell me they have a turbocharged skyline motor when its na.

I think 240sx are nice cars and there's many reasons to like them, but their surge in popularity is solely due to the drifting becoming popular.

Think about the other cars that compete with 240sx.... really cheap rwd cars. There's not that many and any other car in this category is either more expensive or really rare or has at least one fatal flaw. You have to admit that while the stock 240sx may not be that great... there's also not that much wrong with it either.

I'm not really a fan of them either, most that I see fill that half-done, half-assed spot, but there's definately a big market for them.
