Cool new guy that wishes he had a 240SX

hey 1st post.

well I'm 16, and my mom's old RL will be mine as soon as my dad's E92 M3 comes in. when that happens my mom will get my dad's E46 330i which is on bilstein coilovers and hamaan PG2 rims. before that he had a 1989 fastback 240SX.

and thats what I want more than the scion tC that seems to be coming my way when I'm 17 or so. blacktop SR20 + 13PSI on the T25 FTW! but its not all my money paying for the car, and he wants something less old, so RSX-S is in consideration even tho theyre so overpriced. still 240SX FTW.

comments anyone?

Convince him to allow the same amount alotted for the rsx to be speant on a 240 and a nice engine tranny and light suspension upgrade. For almost the same price you could essentially restore/rebuild the 240 to be nicer and faster than the rsx. Im currently doing this with my supra. I paid about 6500 for the car, and about 6000 for all the parts t rebuild it, about 2000 to restore it, and believe me it will smoke most factory built cars on the road, and still look and ride like a new sports car.

He may be hesitant though because there is no warranty, and it could be too fast and unsafe for an unskilled driver.

There are powerful arguments on both sides here. Its just up to you to convince him that its a better or more suited purchase for you the owner. I must warn though, rebuilding is always 10 times harder than you think or how it looks on tv!

thanks, I'm also thinking of doing OJT in my senior year in highschool. this allows me to work for hopefully meineke or another car shop so a SR20 swap/mild build may me closer to reality, depending on pay of course.
