That may be stock but one of the cleanest I have ever seen for a car that is 20 + years old.

Every car I've had since has been better, and my BRZ is more fun, but it was definitely a memorable car (garbage timing chain tensioner aside).

Had a 1995 SE 5MT a number of years ago.

Pristine, stock, one owner, 19k miles when I bought it. I miss it very much now, I feel like it was the last clean 240 in the country.

Also, super jealous of you guys in Australia who could get S15s.

I've had 5 or 6 silvias, two s13's, there s14's, one s15.

But this was my first, and still my faourite.

Was 2004-2005. No one had really gotten into rear wheel drives or drifting in NZ yet. Everyone was still in evos and stis.

This started as a 200sx (which is a nzdm 180sx) then added s13 front to make it a sil80. Jdm sr20det swap. Turbo and injectors were from an s15. Apexi piggy back ecu. 280hp. Suspension was just some cheap teins. Also had caster arms, rear camber and toe, and that was pretty much it. Wheels are r32 skyline wheels, rattle can black.

I just loved how simple that car was.

We have loved the 240 for a long time. Bought this one new in '94, got it dialed in before the turn of the millennium, and it's lived a quiet life ever since. Still under 60k miles. It happens to be for sale, in case anyone is looking for a clean S14. Full scoop at www.bestwheelbase.com/240.

Yeah. Just always felt right, it's been a good car, lots of good memories. But eventually you reach the point where it is time to pass it on so someone else can make memories. It's just not seeing enough use these days, needs someone who can put it in heavy rotation and enjoy the hell out of what is a fantastic balanced streetable setup.

Come to think of it, the car will be 20 years old this autumn. Wow I cannot believe it's been that long. It's been a pleasure every mile, every curve, every late night blast through the hills on cool summer evenings with the windows down, gloves on, crack of the exhaust resonating through the trees...

Hopefully it finds a loving home.
