Just picked up this 95 240sx last saturday. My 12 year old brother purchased it as a project we can build together. Plan for the car is to restore it and then build up suspension to be used as an autocross car and eventually he may drift it.
Details on the car:
95 240
completly stock KA24DE
Auto trans
Tein coilovers
172k
tons of rust
bought it for $1500

My little brother has done most of the work so far and loves doing it



Then we started tearing it down to look for the rust that needed to be repaired




heres what we found




Ill show more progress as it happens

Holy shit that's rusty. Very cool that your little brother is out in the garage wrenching though.

Yea im very proud of him. Were going to install a new floorboard, cage, and fix the rust. Looks worse then it is, just very time consuming to repair.

It's cool to see a young kid involved in something other than a Honda Fit. DO NOT LET HIM START WEARING GIRL PANTS! All will be well.
