Mustang for a 240

I need some honest opinions, from some people that like all types of cars, should I trade my 01 v6 for a 95 240sx? I wanna weigh my pros and cons.

I mean from the pics it looks great, he says it needs a new starter, which I can do easily, but I'm gonna pop start it and make sure it's running ok and all, he says it has intake and exhaust, which I do also, and he has 350z rims on it, I honestly like the kouki alot beter than the zenki but mabey I'll do the conversion some time haha

The only reason I would ever trade my stang for another car would be better gas. Which would then help save up for a newer stang. But, it's up to which car you like more, but don't put a fart cannon on it.,,

im a fan of the 240sx. especially one thats real clean and stock looking with some sexy wheels n tires. and i think the trade would be fair. i would love to own the 240 and keep the stang though and use the 240 as a dd. but thats if i had extra cash. just make sure u make the right choice or u might end up regreting it like most other mustang owners who sell their stangs.

Doing all those mods to our cars are expensive though, not to many people upgrade our sixers so parts are alot. The 240s are alot cheaper to upgrade, I'm only 17 so parts prices are prety important haha, I think I'm gonna just try and sell my car for a good price and buy one for cheap and put the rest of the money into it, that sound like a good idea?

I like muscle too, but when I think 6 cylinder I think tuner haha, if it was a gt, wouldn't even be a question, but 4 and 6 cylinder I think there's more potential out of tuners, and I like to drift

The 240sx is gonna get around the same gas milage as the V6 mustang. I've had several S13's & S14's those were my preferred cars when I was a teenager. My 95, stock got about 16-18mpg with the exception of my '89 S13 KA24E SOHC gets an average of 25-28mpg but that's because I've gutted all the emissions & EGR crap.

None the less, I'd trade your mustang for an S14. Just be sure to get a good look at the inner wheel wells, the inner walls of the trunk, the radiator support. Look for wrinkling or any other signs that it might have been wrecked. You don't wanna trade and later find out that the car had been thrown sideways into a telephone pole.
