    Nice, I put a lot of work into that car and it's all the more worthwhile knowing someone is enjoying it Those poly bushes I put in it were great, wish I had done the same to this one
    My S13 has been dry stored for about 3 years. I kept pushing it forwards and backwards in the garage to prevent the tyres flatspotting but the time has come to make a decision.....
    One of my SX's has to go now. I've thought about it long and hard and I'm going to keep this S13 and sell my S14a. Time to move on and all that but the S13 will be my daily.

    Omg!!! Never did I think I would see the day! What sort of money would you ask for it? It's got to be in the 20s, if not 30k.

    I'm retired now and my personal circumstances have changed significantly. I've too many cars and not enough space if the truth be known.

    The S14a has been dry stored since it was refurbished and started every few months. There was one for sale recently that was lower mileage than mine at £22K. No doubt it has some rust. Mine is genuinely rust free and has never been welded. I've read stories about mint examples and low milage this and that. I've yet to see one. I was also told that Nissan Japan had a brand new one in their museum so I contacted them. Again it was BS, they don't have an S13 or S14 (Sylvia or 180) You guys know the score with this car and I'd rather it go to a good home where the owner can keep in touch and send me occasional pics. I don't need the money and I don't want the hassle of bartering over a few quid.
    I'm also realistic about what it's worth, I'm also well aware of bank interest rates and how much these cars have gone up in value.

    Bit of an open ended answer without a price but I'm still thinking about it. If it's a hassle free sale, I'll be willing to take less for an easy solution.

    arry I've PM'd you my no if you want to chat.

    Pete

    Btw, I got the S13 out of the garage today and washed it down

    Like unicorns can't be kept in a zoo, all the 180SX escaped to live in the wild. Seems the S15 all went over the fence as well.

    The low mileage (15k) car at £22,500 has been for sale almost a year now. It was originally £25k, but it's simply not selling and has no underside pictures.

    Pete, I see no point in comparing your car to anything out there. Even by the mightiest standard of restoration, yours is still a cut above. You'll just have to pick a price that you like and see where it gets you.

    For the record, I'm also interested. So if you have a price in mind, I'd love to get a PM too.

    Cheers, Ryan

    Morning Pete. Sorry it's taken me a couple of days to get back to you - I've cleared just about everything from my PM box and....still can't send you a PM I really should just renew my membership

    I'm really sorry, I must confess that I completely misread your post and thought that you were putting the S13 up for sale, and in that I would be very, very interested indeed. I have fancied a 14 over recent years but more as a practical classic that can be used - and at a lower price point than you'll be looking for / afforded less care than yours would be worth. Sorry for the confusion mate Well, my confusion, and inability to read.

    If Piman is interested then he'd definitely be a great buyer for it - and I hope you two can work something out

    Sorry again dude.

    It's only £10 a year now.

    What a truly epic story this is, I've spent most of this morning reading most of it!
    Pete can you remember how much brake line you used?

    No probs mate. this thread is a bit confusing now with S13's and 14's Oh and theres a Mini in here somewhere
    I'd rather the S14 go to someone on this forum but I'm in no rush to sell it. Might be next year by the time I advertise it.

    Thanks and I'm sorry I can't remember how much brake pipe I used. It's a bit of a pain running them across the bulkhead from the master cylinder to the abs unit though. Getting them straight was a pita.
    It's MOT time tomorrow. Should be interesting I'll get some pics up if I get chance.
