The hunt is on!
I sold my WRX last December, after paying it off I made $4K, the money I've been able to save a few more grand since then (mostly due to not having a car payment).
Now that the warm weather is here I'm itching to get out of my pickup and into something sporty.
I've decided 100% without a doubt that I want a MY95-98 240sx
It needs to be a stick shift
It needs to be in good shape drivable/inspectable/no rust/no mechanical problems/etc.
I live in NH but willing to go to neighboring states: VT, ME, MA
I'm looking to spend about 4-5K on the car... the only way I would consider an Automatic is if it was 100% flawless and a good price, then I'd at least consider it for a transmission swap.
I plan on building a Silvia 14.5... S14 rear end S15 front end and S15 engine, I've already done my research I know everything involved, I know who I'm going to buy the parts from, I've got the cash I need for the first part of the conversion (engine swap) and I've talked to people who've done the conversion already and willing to lend me a hand if I get stuck. Though I'm doing an engine swap I want the car to be in good mechanical shape before the swap to help ensure that everything is in working order before hand. I want to upgrade the car not repair a basket-case.
All I need now is the car. I've been searching autotrader, uncle henry's, and craigs list daily.
The reason I'm posting this here is because I've found the best deals are usually the ones sitting on the side of the road with no other advertising. So if anyone here lives in the New England area and knows of a nice 240sx for sale.. PLEASE let me know
