Has anybody ever owned just one 240? I don’t think that’s exists. It seems like people have either owned none… or 5+.
And that really says something about Nissan’s S-Chassis. Doesn’t it? So let’s give the car some credit… as ENTHUSIASTS and not just drift junkies.
I mean look – if that many people love these cars that much to keep buying ‘em over & over & over again well into their 40s… they can’t all be wrong. And the aftermarket support is as good as it gets. The thing is – a lot of us subconsciously file 240s into one bin & one bin only: drift missiles. And we can’t think outside of that stereotype. Screwy wheel fitment, mismatched body panels, and zipties keeping it all together.
Basically – JDM dirt track cars with Chevy engines. It’s cool until it becomes the norm.
But the truth is, there shouldn’t be anything strange or eyebrow-raising… about having just ‘a nice 240 street car’ lol. We don’t all need to be pro drifters. I mean look – there are only enough tire & energy drink sponsors to carry us so far lol.
Yes, Nissan’s S-chassis is a bonafide great chassis for drifting.
But it’s also a just… a great chassis. Period.
And it’s nice to see clean, survivor S-Chassis cars like this on the street. Jesus Christ can we save the street cars!
This car belongs to Nick Scugoza of South Florida.
It’s an imported Silvia… so it’s the real deal. And Nick spent a long time tracking this car down from owner to owner… before he finally had a legitimate shot at buying it. And once it finally got into Nick’s grubby little hands, it got the big-brother Nissan RB25 swap. Like so many of us, Nick loves the essence of 80s/90s boosted Japanese driver’s cars. And he tried to keep that spirit intact with original color combos, and clean-fitting JDM aero pieces. He also works to keep that essence of 80s/90s Japanese cars alive by PUTTING THE DAMN CAR ON THE DAMN STREET… and not on some crap trailer behind a Chevy truck with a Hoonigan sticker on it. He takes this thing out on sunny Florida days, gets squirrely off A1A stop lights, strikes a pose for the new crop of Forza kids… and for Nick, that’s enough.
