Should I pick this up?

So I went to the junkyard and theres a couple 240sx's. Definately needs work but Im looking for a project car anyway.

I might go monday to check them out again, I know I need to check for frame rust but is there anything else I should check?

thanks in advance

Not worried about the motor, won't be in there for too long

And my buddy is gonna carfax it for me to see if the frame was twisted or anything major like that.

I think the most important thing is to check for Frame Rust, it is annoying trying to fix. I know 240's tend to rust alot near the frame rails and strut tower areas. Also, if the hatch has a wing, there might be alot of rust near the mounting points. (S13 models).

If you can get the car cheap and don't mind doing some resto work, I would say go for it. But just expect a few cute suprises

If you got the parts lying around. go for it. It does look pretty damaged, but not too bad.
Paint is cool 2 tone scheme
