Just picked up this 95 240sx last saturday. My 12 year old brother purchased it as a project we can build together. Plan for the car is to restore it and then build up suspension to be used as an autocross car and eventually he may drift it.
Details on the car:
95 240
completly stock KA24DE
Auto trans
Tein coilovers
172k
tons of rust
bought it for $1500

My little brother has done most of the work so far and loves doing it

Do you guys need a rust-free trunklid with spoiler holes? I forgot I have one here and if you can use it, you can have it. I am cleaning out my shed this spring and not much stuff is going to make the cut. I also have some odds and ends interior trim and shit.

Dang! You could fit your 12 year old brother through the holes in the inner wheel houses!
:-) Id say wait on the front end and start cutting out your quarters, inner wheel houses, rockers, and inner rockers!

Thats the plan, removed the front end because someone is buying it. A kouki front will replace it. We will start cutting out the rust this weekend and pulling the motor which is going in ym new daily. he will then get the SR thats in my car now aftter i get my new motor done.
