What should I do?...

Ok...
So as many of you know I have a 1993 Nissan 240sx se coupe 5spd. Well I recently put it on Craigslist to see how much interest it would generate. So far I've got a couple ppl email me about the car. Not to much interest. But this one guy said he is very interested and keeps asking me a lot of questions about the car. Neway Im wondering what my fellow prelude brethren think I should do. Should I sale it or keep it? Im kinda leaning towards keeping it because it was free its 5spd its rwd and aftermarket support is through the roof. Regardless I'm still keeping the Prelude, I just have to get it running again. lol

Re: What should I do?...

I say keep it. Idk if you got the title and all that yet so no one going to want to give ya what it is worth. From what i seen it looks good but how well does it run and what kind of things does it need?

Re: What should I do?...

yeah. if i do decide to sale it i wont until i get the title. it runs pretty good but burns oil since it has over 200k miles. it needs paint, but 240 owners dont care wat the paint looks like. lol. it doesnt have a radio, the front windshield needs to be resealed, and the driverside window doesnt work.

Re: What should I do?...

I'd sell it. Take that money, fix the problems with the Lude, and then you'll have one solid DD instead of 2 (for lack of better words) rags that you can hardly keep on the road.
I've seen your car and you don't need to let it go as far downhill as I've let mine go. If it weren't for your door issue, I'd almost be willing to trade with you. A couple hundred bucks and it'd be practically good as any new car off the lot.

Off topic for a sec, we need to get a black 4th gen to come to the meet so we have a more complete shoot than last time when it was just you and me. Now that I think about it, besides Ace and my dad, you're the only person to drive my car since I got it, lol.

Re: What should I do?...

I say sell it, for mainly the reasons E stated. However my opinion on the RPS13 chassis is well documented, and it's not a very good one.
