240SX of Nissan Jam 2016

More S13 and S14 than you can shake a stick at!

Like generations of the Honda Civic hatchback before, the Nissan 240SX is today sort of a default starter tuner car, at least for enthusiasts into RWD and corresponding pursuits like drifting (although, given the so-called “drift tax,” most 240s are currently well out of financial reach for most noobs; a similar demand-fueled, price-hiking phenomena also befell the Civic). We get why it’s a great base and therefore so ubiquitous; it’s a long-nosed coupe in the classic sense with a variety of engine swap options – from native SR and even RB power plants (like Johnny Torres’ ’97) to good ol’ American GM LS V8 grunt – as well as a healthy amount of other aftermarket support. It’s even got Japanese counterparts, the 180SX/Silvia, so you know there’s going to be a fair amount of pan-Pacific style biting.

Known in the U.S. as either an S13 (model years ’88 to ’94) or S14 (model years ’95 to ’00) in chassis speak, 240SX were among the most prolifically represented at Nissan Jam 2016. Event organizers did a fantastic job at allowing only the best S chassis examples from the community into the show – about a dozen of them – and as such they attracted a good chunk of looky-loos throughout that day (although nowhere as large as the crowd around the Skylines). Delight in our 240SX gallery from Nissan Jam 2016, and be on the lookout for more from the fourth annual Nissan/Datsun/Infiniti enthusiast event.
