View Full Version : Sweet deal on S13

01-07-2001, 05:41 PM
I just bought a 93 S13 with 80,000 miles for $2000. Man what a deal! Perfect paint and interior, the car is as light as possible with no AC, no rotting spoiler, no creaky sunroof, also no power windows but I may change that. It has Tokiko struts / shocks, Eibach springs, AVS-I tires, and an Autometer Oil Presure gauge. Service records show it had a new clutch at 50k, and what looks like a new 5 speed transmission at 70k! Also the diff was replaced in 1998. Owned by one family, my friend got it from his parents, so I know the maintenence is perfect.

I'm pretty psyched, this let's me dump the 87 Maxima I have been driving to keep the SR car out of the salt. Just in time, the brakes and exhaust are crapping out.

Since my brother and I are opening a dyno shop here in Albany NY this spring, I plan on doing some interesting things to the totally stock engine. Anyone want to know the HP increase of a K&N drop in filter? How about the HP from a 4 degree timing advance or from removing the y-pipe and resonator? Hee hee, this is going to be fun. As we set up the dyno I will get endless runs to play around!

I sort of feel like a ghoul, this is the second 240sx I've bought from a relatively desperate / discouraged seller. This time from a local friend. He offered, I happened to have the cash, the rest is history.

Now I've had a red, white, and black S13. I always wanted a red or a black car, I just never thought they would all be the same model!

Hey that sounds great I just pick up a S-13 with 65,000 miles for my customer for $1200

Wish they had them this cheap here in Toronto. I was looking at their prices for the last 3 years and they only went down about $500. Still hang at $4-5.5grand for like 150km. I got mine for $4700 with $139km in Nov 99.

Ya thats a totall piss of on me...
I bought an 89 240 with 193,000 KM's in September 99 for $5100 Canadian.
The engine was crap and I turned a bearing...
but before that the clutch went (i got a smoking deal on it so I won't complain)
got a 90 engine put in runs awesome, and I drive it onto a baracade and break some steering stuff...

What I really want is a 91 or newer S13 with all the options, and leather. But mainly for the DOHC.
Cheapest I have see one is $8000 for a 92 with 132,000 KM's.....

I'm in the Vancouver area of B.C....

Don wanna find me a car worth building on?

Mike (desperate for new 240)

Oh ya, and I can't drive till May though....
Damn tickets.

I got my '92 LE for $10k Canadian on May 10th, 1999. It only had 89,000 km's and in the two years since the only thing I've had to do was remove the heat shield (annoying rattle) and change the oil. Best buy I ever made.
