what does that mean?
its the chassis code. older model coupes, hatches, and convertibles are the S13, newer models are S14. this also applies to the Silvias and 180sx in japan.

~Midnight~ is on a distinguished road
Hey, my names David and I live in Omaha Nebraska, my best friend is a member of these board and referred me here, ~240GTR~.

I plan on either getting a S13 and doing the RB26DETT (I believe) engine swap with the Silvia front end conversion, nice body kit, all black, black rims, tinted headlights tailight and windows of course, hence where my nickname Midnight is from. This is more than likely going to be my project.

I'm also considering getting a 90-93 Toyota Celica GT-S, doing a 3SGTE engine swap and building it up from there, but the 240GTR Silvia sounds much better to me. I'm just a huge fan of the Celicas, but I know for a fact I'll get more power from the RB26DETT than I would from the 3SGTE, plus it won't cost as much to get more power. I'll probably get a Celica as my daily driver, because I am a huge Celica enthusiast.

Newbie

Hi, I'm Gary from Memphis, TN. I've got a 1993 240SX Hatch I bought new; plan to drag race it starting this year in the Import classes. Hope to pick up a lot of tips and advice. I'm new to drag racing, done some autocrossing/road race type stuff, so I look for a lot of help. Glad to see a website devoted to us 240 types.

13en is on a distinguished road
Hey, my name's Ben, I've had my s14 for about 2 years now, 96 240sx SE. So far I've only upgraded the suspension with KYB AGX struts and RSR springs. My car's black and I painted the stock SE wheels bronze. Someone will say that I'm totally ripping off the WRX look with the bronze wheels, (which I am) but so what, I like the way it looks. I have Falken Azenis (the ones that are no longer in production) on them. Everything else is stock. Next, I plan on getting an intake and exhaust, then stiffen up the chassis with some strut bars, then get an LSD. No decisions on what manufacturer yet.

Gotta say that I fell in love with this car one day when I saw it in a parking lot. Love at first site. I didn't know what kind of car it was and my brother that is knowledgable about imports explained what kind of car it was. He'd known about drifting for a while, and explained that it's a good drift car. I didn't care, I just wanted it. Since then I've gotten into drifting, but only as spectator. I've gone to AutoX once and I plan on going again soon. Anyway, good to find this forum.

Its official...I'm getting a new project car. The only difference from this one and all the other ones i have done in the fact that this one is actually a real car. I can't believe i just said that, I feel like a dork now. Anyway, rumor has it that the people on this forum are wonderful people and are full of great info for those of us that haven't been enlightened yet. So here I am to absorb all of the wonderfulness. I'm loking forward to building this car with all of you guys and gals

HaughtUV777 is on a distinguished road
Noob

My name's Josh, I just bought a 1991 240 from a used car dealer for $400.... the person who had it blew the motor and it was sitting there collecting cement (I don't know either....) But, I saw this as an unfit use of a 240.. so I bought it.... I'm definately doing a motor swap.. I'm thinking the SR20DET black top... but, if I can find an RB, I'm going for it. This car is in bad shape... and as soon as I think about it, I'm gonna post pictures of it on my cardomain page http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2168720/1 Right now, I'm driving a Ford Aspire, it was a good car at a good price when I was still in school... now I have time and a good paying job so, hopefully... you'll get to see it... peace

So that I can rebuild it, with all new parts that I want to put on it. So that I can make it into the 240/S13 that I want to drive. What the fuck does that mean anyway? I have had several cars that I have stripped down to nothing a rebuilt to show cars. This one will be for the track. Why do people have to be such assholes anyway?

Has no one heard of to each his own?!?!?!?!?
