ok, so...i picked up this 1988 nissan 200sx(s12) for FREE ...yes...FREE

not running, full of spiders dirt, dust, hay, cigarette butts, money, and other random trash.

it is currently being prepped for a motor swap, and as soon as i locate a shop that i can use, the stock motor will be GONE!

now on to the pics

















The big boy etch-n-sketch











i tossed the trashy UFO lookin wheels and picked a set of OEM replacement meshies off the turbo model S12.

the motor is torn down even more, the a/c stuff from behind the dash is on its way out

all that is left is suspension, welding the DIFF, replacing the windshield, and umm...filling the gas tank

Awesome.  I got mine for free too.  My stepmom said if I could get it running I could have it.  We should start a club called "I got my s12 for free sucka (dot) com" lol jk

1984 Nissan Silvia RS12 CA18ET


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1992 Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi Mirage) Daily beater- 4 speed stick, needs some rust repair- project abandon, must sell due to reliability issues. $500 takes the car and a bunch of goodies

1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle- Runs and drives perfect. Needs new drums all around and a speedo cable.

2007 Honda Ruckus- Awaiting funds for a 150cc GY6 motor swap, then probably gonna do a VW GTi K04 turbo conversion. ~put on hold for yet another year~

It might actually take a baseball bat to do it, lol.  My car had the heater core replaced at some point in the late 90s.  The shop that did it caused a lot more harm than good.  They cracked the main housing of it thats made of some kind of fiberglass or something.  It looks like after they screwed up and did that they tried to "fix" it with some kind of epoxy.  Totally made it worse, lol.  And they got it on the carpet.  I wondered what that was until I got up under the dash and saw what had been done.  And they messed up all the controls for the a/c directions.  Like defroster, panel, floor, panel & floor, etc.  Its always just half the panel and the floor, lol.

I guess the moral of the story is 1) its gonna be a bitch and 2) If you don't care about the a/c ever working again, which I don't think you do, then get out the bat, lol

good luck
