You know, I considered this one.
I would rock a 240sx, the last gen with that 160HP truck motor, lol, its a 4cyl from Nissan's truck line of the time, but its good. RWD all the way
I am coming from a BMW 325is 1994, sport package .. the motor ate it at 180,000 miles .. it wouldve lasted longer but had an unknown internal issue
caused by a real late oil change one time (when i was out of town !!).
Anyway, maybe i can get $1,500 for it .. with the motor bein' gone and all. So that will help me out some in savings.
The problem with the S14 240sx .. is that it is so popular among import enthusiasts! And my area has alot of them! Enthusiasts.. so they all want to
rock the 240's. I look on autotrader and find like .. 5 of them within 100 miles, one of them under $5,000.
Now the 240sx that came before that one, the S13, I would buy one of those as well believe it or not, some people prefer those MORE than the newer
model. Anyways, if I could find one cheap enough I'd grab it. But apparently they're more rare than the damn VW's ..
Only Honda I'd consider owning would be a 5th generation prelude. Just because it is a very nice car overall, handles excellent, has a great motor in
it, the 2.2 V-tec. And I dont like Hondas! So you know it was a good car. But they seem a few thousand out of my price range, perhaps if I had $6,000
to throw around I could get lucky.
But if I had $6,000, I'd definitely be looking at used 97 Audi A4 1.8Turbo AWD cars! lol .. and also, Jetta VR6's with the slim-angle V6 with
