    note Your Official Ride Thread - S13

    In this thread we will profile each users S13 chassis 240sx.

    Please just post pics of your ride and if comments or questions must be asked, please use the PM (private message) option.

    The S13 was my first of three 240's.

    It was a champagne in colur, hatchback style, full options, sunroof and 5 speed manual. My first ever car. This is the car that got me hooked with them. Started the passion for driving.
    Since I don't own this car anymore, I am not going to create a profile for it. However, I do have an S14 that you can check out in the other thread.

    The S13 is what is commonly referred to as the 1989-1994 240sx sold in North America.
    There are two models of each. There was the 1989-90 model years and the 1991-94 model years. Only in 1994 was there a Convertible coupe model.

    There is also two different versions. The hatchback and the coupe.

    There is plenty more to discuss, so this is what I want to hear in your thread. Tell us about your car and your cars history!

    So let's see what your rides look like, and see your mods. Remember to keep your post updated as well!

    A Garage (BC)
    Then: I got my RHS13 on July 1st 2002, with 133,333kms and am now at 136, 843kms, Base model, no power anything, no moonroof, no ac, no anything but power steering (she’s on a diet, nothing fancy ) and it's a 5 spd. On that Canada Day, is when the keys were handed over to me and I could call her mine. This car came with a Simota Racing Seat (FS), a Radio deck with a non working 5 disc changer, a Chinese dragon sticker on the side, many many pinstripes besides the black tape, broken rear wiper, broken fog lights (took those off), a few leaks here and there (crank seal, struts, injectors) . Tail light leaking water, crappy clear tint that was wavy, dirty interior, broken this and that’s, funky smell of old owner :tongue! Ricer exhaust, no name on it that is visible, doens't sound bad, maybe thats because i short shift as some have seen, its melted much of the bumper, and soot stained the rest :lol2: .The wheels and tires came with the car, they are crappy lookin to me and the profile of the tire doesnt suit a 15inch wheel, but they are wide at 8inch with tires,so abotu a 7-7.5inch wide wheel, nice and sticky . haha only rust is about the size of a penny and is on the inside fender connecting to the body, which I’ll be fixing when body work comes around. When I went to pick up the car, over night she got a huge dent in the side of the car courtesy of our a-hole customers at work THANKS! and my speedometer doesn't work :lol2: one of my highbeams don't work either, driving blind at night pretty much.

    Now: Since I got the car its taken me one year to the date (July 1st 2003) to have fixed all those and make her run like she should have in the first place, basically a restoration project. I got new Monroe Struts (stiff struts well worth the money btw) temporarily after my front one blew out and my rear started to leak oil on the garage floor. Got rid of the racing seat when a weld broke one day, fixed that weld and found some Z32 seats for sale on here and bought those, spent 13hours putting them in my car with HUGE help from my Uncle Randy, my dad and i pitched in where I could (YES THEY ARE POWER SEATS! (driver)). Took a few parts out I didn't need, little things here and there. Put in a Sony MP3 CD unit in there, cleaned up the mess of wiring back there!, looks cleaner, and disabled the alarm, need to take that outstill and get a new one. My dad went to go and find some replacements tail lights and center bezel after he burned the first ones, also the tail light was leaking in water causes condensation. Anyway he got the front bumper while getting the tail lights, and that is the bumper currently on my car. It was trashed, paint was chipping off, and needed a little fix (it came off a wrecked 240, so don’t ask who makes it). So I took it to a body shop that I worked at for a little while on work experience, prepped it for free, painted it in my garage, and over the course of that week, rainy and all, went back to the body shop and put on the dull flat black chip resistant paint that’s on there now. It is now sticker/badge-less , minus the Nissan embedded name in the front bumper. Runs good, super maintained, and lookin for more...

    Next: She's going to get new brakes, headlights, and lowered Z32 seats soon (Aug. next month!) That’s a short story of it so far and the many MANY upgrades going on are somewhat secret, those who know me have an idea of what’s going on. And this is my fav pic...and in a few weeks will update with new stuff g liek a good outside front shot:evil2

    I purchased my 1991 240sx S13 hatchback, in July of last year , bone stock with 165,000 km's on it. It's the LE model with Super HICAS , leather interior , etc. etc. Upon purchasing the S13 , I instantly threw in my 2 12" Rockford RFZ2412 subs in a dual chamber box powered by a MTX RT2400 amp and a Sony Xplod - CQ-850X. In late August I entered the car into a bass competition in which I completed 3rd in with 141.3db. In September I tinted out the front and back windows , and put on a Fireball Exhaust. Once winter came I did the H4 Sealed Beam conversion, and eventually replaced my Rockford subs with 2 Alpine 12" Type E's. March I lost my license and had my car parked for less than a month before it was stolen from my driveway at 4am. My exhaust woke me up , and I contacted police. 1 Month later my car was retrieved with minimal damage done to the passenger side, the complete system was stolen as well as my door speakers, the floormats were stolen , gear shift knob was split open, glovebox stolen , rearview mirror stolen , lighter jack , ashtray, lighter fuse, back seats were taken apart, centercap from wheel was stolen, as well as the black cover for my headlight housings. 3 Months later and now July of 2003 , I received my car back, nearly to completion all that's missing now is floormats , a matching glovebox and my door speakers. And 21 days until I receive my license back and am capable of driving

    Here's a picture of my one true love:
