Default Introduction

Hi, my name is Terry.

I've been looking around these for a couple weeks now due to the fact that I plan on purchasing an LS400 in the near future in order to replace my current car.


A little background on myself, I am currently 20 year old and going to college. I've been into cars for most of my life now, for the most part I've been into the whole Nissan thing, mainly due to the whole drifting aspect (240's being cheap, etc).

And with that, I currently drive a '92 Nissan 240sx, which I have owned for just over 3 years. I take this car to the track (Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA) to have some fun on occasion.

Here are a few pictures.









The car itself has been very reliable to me, up until recently, I just feel that I should let the car hibernate for a while. The necessity of a daily driver, rather than a daily/track car has become more prevalent, thus my search for an LS400 ('95-'00) begins. Not sure what else I should say, this is my first time making an introduction post (hope it's in the right section..), although it is not my first forum account.

Sidenote: You won't have to worry too much about me as I tend to do extensive research before starting a new thread on a topic if I am curious, in other words.. I know how to use the search button



Tralalala.. Bonus...

welcome and good luck on your search for an LS. what draws you to this side of the car world? i suggest looking for a 98-up for a more modern car, if your budget permits. a 95-97 will suffice and give you years of reliability and fun!

Thanks! My reason for wanting one of these cars is mainly to have a nice daily driver that is comfortable. Also, the styling of these cars is very appealing as well. A 98-00 would be amazing, but at the moment budget only permits a 95-97, unless I can find an amazing deal. Hope I can find one soon! The 240 needs to hibernate.

Welcome to CL! You'll be able to find a 95-97 relatively cheap now a day and you COULD find a 98 for close to 95-97 prices too but you have to search extensively. Clean 240 you have there!

Welcome!
Funny I used to own a 1992 Nissan Stanza which had the same engine as your 240sx. That engine was really solid - never any problems.

Thanks for the tip akitomk3, now I have a lot more confidence in finding a '98! I'm willing to look for a good amount of time. Also thanks for the compliment!

Nice! peterls, yeah the KA's are pretty reliable, never gave any problems that weren't easily fixable.
