well picked this up today and happy about it. it's a 1987 Nissan 200sx SE v6 and as you can tell it needs some work on the front end. but i love it and am going to strive to do more to it.

I know of a guy who may have one of those sitting behind his house still in Sun Prairie. It doesn't have a motor in it but may have a decent front clip on it.

You would have to buy the whole car I am guessing, I can almost promise you he is too lazy to part it out.

Welcome to the site. I almost picked up a CA18DET powered S12 not long before I found my S13. I only passed on it because it was an auto.

Thanks for the welcomes everyone, as for plans other then fixing it i do intend on drifting with it and taking it to autocross.

@240sxguy- hmm...if you could ask if he is willing to part it i'd be willing to pull the parts myself where i live i really don't have space for another car just to sit.

@Flicktitty- It might be if he lives in the milwaukee area.

currently I'm looking for some misc 240 bits to start prepping for the 240sx suspension swap and eventually getting a KA24de and manual trans to go in it. right now just the biggest pet peeve is that it's missing the button for the driver power window so i can't really control it it just goes all the way up or down, so if anyone has a spare button lemme know.

Welcome Romero,

That thing will bleed you to death.

You may be better off putting your money in the driveway and burning it. At least you will get some warmth...

I would just love it as much as you can in its current form, then move onto something a little less "in the hole" so to speak.

Love 200sx's for sure, but maybe find one from CA/NM/AZ and not have the front end messed up.

Just trying to spare you some $ and frustration. Nothing wrong with appreciating a car that needs work...important part is not putting in the work, only the appreciation.

I say all of this because I have been down that road before with your mindset...it ended in a fiery crash and all hands were lost.

Is your car rusty? The one sitting out behind that dude's house I know may actually be better than yours.
