87' Nissan Sentra B-12 16L EI

It has 130,000 miles with 69hp AWD. It has a 5 spd manual and its in good shape. They want $1,500 for it. Should i buy it? I heard you could Turbocharge it to 200-250hp for around $1,500.

It all depends if the engine is still in good shape. If the seals are leaking and you turbo it, you can blow it quick.

Yeah, i'll check and see for leaks. But the owner is pretty much on top of everything. I don't think i'll turbo it right away. I'll probably be adding like 20k before doing the turbo. It's going to be my commuter and road trip car. I don't know whether to hold on and get a 1990 or just to go for this. I offered 1,200.00

If I still had the energy to do a restoration I would probably look for either a Datsun 510 2 door or a Datsun 2000 roadster. both were nice cars and could be made to go fairly fast on a race track.

Datsun 510, yes. Datsun 2000, no. Maybe i should wait and restore/turbo an old car when i have money to play with. Should keep saving my money up, the frontier is my first priority.

The 1968 Datsun 2000 roadster I had was probably one of the nicest cars I have ever owned. A friend had a new turbo Z and decided he would run off and leave the rest of us on a Z club event. I was right behind him in my roadster. He was running over 110 mph and the roadster was right on his tail. He gave my roadster a little respect after that.

I only kept it a year, but it ran flawlessly the entire time. It was not the prettiest sports car I ever owned, but it was one of the best. The 510 was a fun car to fix up and race.

Well that Sentra is definitely a unique piece of Nissan history. Right up there with the Pulsar.

Man, 4X4. You could put a lift on it. The approch and departure angles would be great!
