    One of the nicest 240s I've seen lately. I love simple, exterior mods. HUGE tailpipes and fugly rims will ruin any cars looks. Good job and congrats Paul. I don't even need to see the rest of the competition to understand why this car was picked.

    To be honest guys, this site has really peaked my interest in 240's! This car in particular. I actually used to work with guys that were in love with them and I was like "big deal", just another rice mobile (spoken by a big rimmed Monte Carlo driver at the time). They were balls fast, as one of the guys was an ex-Audi mechanic/Georgia Tech grad that was just as mechaniclly inclined as he was book smart. I've ridden with him while killing Porsches on Peachtree Street (closer to Peachtree Industrial side, for those familiar w/ATL) and always thought....it's just his car because he was such a car nut. But this site has me wanting one with a slight build for a daily driver. Too many miles going on the M45! Anybody got any suggestions to find a clean one to use as a starting platform in the southeast?

    might find a better response in the 240 sections... We don't want to divert attention from the ROTM winner in this thread! Glad Paul has contributed to inspiring you to start your own 240 project though! thats cool!

    You did look at the rest of the threads right? there's more Infiniti M's than there are Sentras featured as ROTM. I guess a more appropriate answer would be when someone sends in rides that are worthy enough to beat the sentras and 240s.

    Sweet 240. Makes me want to get one.

    Sweet. Well planned, well built, and obviously well loved. I have never been able to keep a black car looking so pristine. I salute you! (Trade you a Dodge Ram for it???):D

    Thoughtful Functional Modifications Done Correctly

    Very clean and functional modifications. No poseur cosmetic stuff here.

    Well done, sir! And a pleasure to drive, I am sure.

    I do wonder how much better it would be in the summer with a good CAI in the high pressure area?
