My first car was a black 1990 model 240SX with the five speed manual transmission.
It had 170K miles on it and was twelve years old.
I drove the car for five years with minimal repairs.
When I sold the car it had $260K miles on it and was in rough shape.
It still drove and shifted perfectly, but the headlights would not longer go down, the paint was peeling off the car in chunks, and the seats were comming appart.
If I could do things over, I would have kept the car and invested the money I threw away on a newer Hyundai in it.
I have replaced the clutch once and of
course have done all of the upkeep on a
fairly strict schedule. I truly love
this car. It is a 5-speed and has
safely gotten me home through
blizzards, rain storms, and heat
waves. This car has been maintained by
the dealer where I originally purchased
it. I am planning to watch the
odometer to go beyond the 300,000 mile
