New car!

Well, new to me. I got this 4 or 5 months ago to save me gas, since it gets double the MPGs as my ranger. Just got a new camera, so I decided to finally take some pictures of it.

Wouldn't be my first choice colour combo but it looks to be in good shape!

It was red when I bought it, but the red was kinda faded, and I got new fenders since the original ones were beat up. I rattlecanned it since it was all mismatching, and the top came out more yellow than cream like I planned. I plan on re-spraying it deep wedgewood blue or charcoal eventually.

Sounds like a good plan. Is that really bad brake dust on the front or are the wheels painted differently?

1992 Nissan 240sx. The wheels had been painted black by the guy before me, and I stripped the paint off the back 2, I haven't done the front ones yet. I got a set of enkei 15x6.5 to put on, I just need to swap the tires over.

Yeah, It's 5 speed. So far I've relocated the battery to the trunk, b&m short throw, full 2.5" exhaust with no cat, and a welded diff just cause it's fun. I'm in the process of saving up for coilovers and building a KA24ET.

I've wanted one since I was 14, just never got around to it until now. Most of them are pretty damn cheap too, I picked mine up for $1800.

Yeah, that's exactly why I'm saving up for my motorswap. The stock KA is so slow. My 4.0 ranger on 33's feels like a racecar compared to the 240.

Finally got my new coilovers and wheels on the 240. Decide to take some pics with the ranger.
