    March 2008 Ride of the Month

    Congratulations Christopher Caccese, FreshAlloy member: ChrisCheezer, of New York City. His 1991Nissan 240SX was chosen as the March 2008 Ride of the Month. Thanks to Jason for entering the contest and to all the members who submitted their rides for consideration. It was a VERY tight race this month. All of the entrants were worthy of recognition, but they will have to wait till next month, as March is reserved for recognition of a candy apple red 240 from the Big Apple.

    Bio of the Car:

    I recieved the car at end of 2004. It was a riced out 240 with a huge molded eribuni body kit, and the car was hit in the front damaging the fenders and bumper cover. Everything was first stripped and suspension work started. I installed basic coilovers and sub-frame spacers. After I had a few suspension basics, I performed my first sr20 swap, and drove that around for two years bone stock.

    I then concentrated on restoring the car's exterior. During that time, the car was sanded down to bare metal and sprayed inside and out with BMW Imola Red II. I added a set of GP sports side skirts and a PDM rear lip. Four months later I hit a deer (doh!) and rocked zip ties all over the front for the whole season.

    Shortly after that a sr20 build was started started, the original sr20 was removed and replaced with my build. During this time, I finished up the suspension, added new brakes, Work wheels, an LSD, and fully stich welded the entire chassis, engine bay, and strut towers.

    I Had the car out for 5 days and it was hit by a truck. So once again i had to paint. From there a GP sports front bumper was installed. After that I obsessed with getting a "prefect tune" for a month. The car looked good, and ran even better.

    Beautiful machine-a lot of hard work. But it doesn't get it here on the M forum. In the bio you ("I recieved the car at end of 2004") misspelled "received;" which ruined the whole effect for so astute an auto forum as hours.
