his website has blue s14s and such on it as well.

mine looks different in various light because we mixed alot of pearl into it. In the shade it looks darker and in the sun it looks lighter.

I have once... ONCE! seen a 240sx w/ factory blue paint.. it was a 89/90.. the day I got mine it was at a gas station we stopped at, and I have ever since wished I'd asked who the owner was to ask them to pop the hood to see what the colorcode was..

does anyone have pics of factory paint blue 240's, AND know at least the paint color name if not code?

yes, but that lists names and codes, but doesn't show what they look like.

If I already knew the name, I could know the code.. but I know neither.. just what it looked like..

S13's only have grey black and white for options on tirerack; and I was looking for S13 colors. I wish tirerack would actually show all the colors but nooo... only on recent cars..

no spacers needed, but camber needed otherwise tires would rub.

Man, you could take advantage of Tirerack.com
When you look at your car with the different rims you can also choose from the colors that your year car came in from factory. For example, the 97-98 240sx came in "Starfire Blue" Also, there is an old thread already about this let me see if I can find it.

Here it is.

You know, I didn't wanna sell it, but I had a lot of bills to pay, and new projects to make way for, so it was time to say goodbye. I hate goodbyes heheh. Say whats up to Kaicho for me!

This car belongs to a friend of mine. It pretty much closed the deal on me buying a 240.
