Currently im down to one car, 1994 Geo Prizm. Its a great car but not exactly something to brag about. I have a great deal of experiance with cars because i buy, fix and sell cars for a living.
Im thinking of fixing up my geo (news bumpers, and paint) and sell it for about 3grand. So im trying to decide what car to get. I have narrowed it down to a few cars. They are my favorite cars for a very long time, and have experiance with all of them.

Early 90's Nissan Sentra SE-R - SR20DET would be put in, would make one hell of a sleeper with that power to weight ratio. Hopefully would put down 250hp to the wheels with minor modifications. The SE-R's all come with stock lsd. Although they do look a little plain i would would on a hood scoop from a subaru or rx-7 to feed the top mount intercooler

87-89 Nissan 300ZX Turbo - I love this car. RWD turbo V6, 2seater. T-tops. Definitly would have to be Black. I have a friend running 18psi with very minor modifications. It is disturbingly quick. I beleive i could do the same if not better. I would upgrade to some pretty stiff suspension. I would like the 87-89 300ZX because of the different tail lites, and front bumper. They also come stock with LSD in those years.

1989-93 Nissan 240SX Coupe - I have never owned a coupe out of all of the 240sx's i have owned. I Would swap in a CA18DET, hopefully get around 270hp out of it to the wheels. The only body modifications would be a silvia front end. If i buy a front clip with the ca18det, it would be pretty neat to convert it to right hand drive.

And about the right hand drive conversion. I used to have to drive a mail truck and its realy not that hard as everyone makes it seem.

Dude that sounds like an awesome next project. My friend has the 89 240sx coupe with the silvia front bumper conversion. It has the stock engine in it though. He also told me there was gonna be something to show me tommorow. im assuming its turbo but I'll never know till tommorow.

yeh i had a few fastbacks, i had turboed a ka24e in one of them. I think im gonna try the CA18DET now because i was always afraid i was gonna blow my motor. The CA18DET comes stock from factory turbo so i would feel a little safer. I would rebuild the engine anyway before i put it in, front mount intercooler, nice exhaust from turbo back, nice blow off valve, high flo intake and a boost controller. I dont want to go too nuts for now, After that feul upgrades but LSD rear comes first. I realy realy love silvias. I know i can never have a real one (yet), but might as well have fun building my own.


The Sentra would be fun to build, but it just so small I dont think i would feel safe driving it. And its front wheel drive.


300ZX Turbo is realy rare in my area, so most likely im probaly gonna get a 240SX coupe from a towing yard with a blown engine.
