I picked up a 1995 Nissan 240sx a couple months ago. I knew it had some problems but for the price, I couldnt pass it up. Seemed like a good deal, especially since this would mean I wouldnt have to drive the 350Z during the winter months.
After getting it home and cleaning the hell out of it, I started to check out what I really had and what I really needed. The car was totally rust free underneath which was another huge plus and a big surprise considering its been in the MidWest for a while. Bought some small things, like bulbs, a new headunit and cloth seats. Removed the rear spoiler and ugly 95 front grill.
Now comes the bad.
I knew the car had a clogged catalytic converter which was more than likely from bad rings. The car was driven back from where it was purchased so I figured I could just remove the cat and make it through the winter. Wrong. I took the car to fill it up with gas one day and ended up having to push it the last couple blocks back. Overall the motor looked pretty good. Obviously it had some internal problems and some worn seals since the whole front of the motor was caked with oil. But what can you expect? The car has 190K miles on it.
I searched and researched alot of local shops. After many outrageous quotes I wasnt sure what I was going to do. This is where Toyotero Motorsports comes into the equation. Stay tuned more info on the S14 and Toyotero to come.
