I kick myself all the time when I passed up a S12 hatchback in 2002. I had already a few cars and saw someone selling their 87 200sx for $700. It was a mistake! Now, 14yrs later, we are seeing the resurgence of older cars! Love it and hate it at the same time because the new folks seem more bandwagon that enthusiast.
While in the US, this car was sold as the 200sx, in both coupe and hatch form, They were also sold with the CA20 motor and the later version SE would have VG30E V6. 4AT or 5MT with FR layout.
In Japan, both formats were sold and 2 different names as well. Silvia and Gazelle.
The differences are typically small for instance grill.
