TheFro's S13, Engine Bay is less empty.

So, my first car was a 240sx, and I loved it. I had great plans for it and all this happy crap and then none of it materialized and I ended up selling the car. Then I bought and FC to build, which didn't happen, so now I'm finally back in an S13.

I bought this car for a steal, it's originally a Texas car. It's pretty much 98% rust free, with the worst of the rust just being minor surface stuff that would take 20 minutes to get rid of.

It's probably going to turn into a drift car, in some relative eventuality, assuming I don't crash it into a Curb, Car, Pole, Etc.

For now I'm going to let the pictures do the talking, all of which are copied from my blog.













































If you want the words that go along with the pictures then check out the link to my blog in my signature, I didn't feel like typing it all out.

I think we met way back in the day at one of the sonic meets.

You traded my brother for a vented headlight cover, right?

That's what I'm hoping, too.

In car news, I ordered a quick release yesterday, and picked up a welded diff from Jspek (Chaz). I also drove the car ~30miles and throughly enjoyed most of it. It's still not running perfectly though, but I think that most of that can be blamed on the partially stale gas that's still in the tank.

I probably won't be working on the car much until Saturday. I've got to go to Virginia for a funeral.

Thanks, and I've been on 240sxfamily before, but I don't need to join another forum, I'm already on NICO Club, Zilvia, TST, Clubloose and some other forums.

Thanks, most people seem to like the wheel.

And I have a better feeling about this build. My life is a bit more stable, and I'm not a broke HS kid trying build cars with no money.

I also updated my blog with more pictures of the car, none of them are actually build related so I won't post them here.

The problem is that people have this misconception that 240's are cheap because everyone knows someone that bought one for nearly nothing.

Realistically the value of them is going up because of the increased demand.

The best thing to do is to find one that's not for sale and then offer some money for it. (what I did)

Thanks! Right now I'm just saving money, waiting, and doing little things to stay busy so I can't really be helped.

I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to drop money on next, I'm personally leaning towards a motor, which I would probably order at the end of the month.

Btw, my car/blog got some love on the Deto International Blog, check it out.

Oh, and for the laughs.
