New to H240

New to the forum but not 240. I currently have a s14 Zenki that is my 3rd 240 both previous were s13. Originally from Florida, taken this pos to Colorado for a few years and then down to Houston. Finally started seriously replacing parts now that's it's not a daily. Have plans for motor build and eventually a turbo now that the suspension has almost completely been gone through. Mechanical priorities first then work on getting the body back in good shape the last 3 1/2 years since it was painted have not been friendly. Once I get into a house I'll start building the drive train for a track car something to put my SBC go fast parts in. Hope and dreams. I've only seen a few 240s around down but mostly just people trying to race my the low and slow. Don't have many pictures on my new phone to upload.




One of my old s13s

Welcome to the forum

I am on and off with 240. It was very active forum. I guess people got more money and got older and move to different things such as babies and wifes.

Thanks for the welcome

@ispoolhard I'm on the FB groups I didn't realize how dead this forum had gotten till after I made this intro and started wondering through the ghost town, I've seen you post actually.


The "scene" has changed so much and isn't what it used to be. My wife will help me when I need an extra set of hands on an install she makes a great spot light holder as well, but I know once the babies come it's the end of the road. I almost ditched the 240 for an rs last year but decided to hang on a few more years. I've put over 60k miles on it and drove it on a 3500 mile road trip a couple months ago no big issues. I've only needed a tow once the whole time I've owned it because I maintain the hell out of it. Once cars get to the age these are getting most people move on because it's more stress than it's worth imo
