Used? If so, I'm also looking for used under $20k for a sporty and competitive car, and I've found the SRT-4 (I'd go 2004 for the LSD), WRX, and the RSX-S are well under that, all clustered around about $15k without too many miles.

VR4 would spank all those cars... badly. If I had the cash and the will to pay the outstanding insurance, that would definetly be my car.

*IF* you could find one... that's in good condition. Not the most reliable thing after 100k miles, especially twin turboed.

You can't talk to her and tell her that one year used would be such a better buy because of depreciation?

Anyways, the SRT-4 is right at the $20k mark, new. The Mazda3 might be a good pick, too, as while it's not that fast, I remember people recommending it to me when I asked for suggestions for a sporty car. The Scion tC is also a good buy at $16k, nimble handling, I heard. Also not the fastest, but there will be a supercharger option later, I think, though.

Finding one is never an issue, look on autotrader, here even use my mom's middle of nowhere zip code of 96022, there are several within 300 miles of her location.

FYI: They're all TT...

Good condition? And not overpriced (I would check KBB.com/Nadaguides.com)? (And I meant "especially because of TT")

Since you have to get a new car, I'd say a ZX3 focus, or a civic si off the top of my head. Leaning more tward the SI.

Ive been doing on some research about the 300zx(z31) model. Theres one in good condition,color silver, by Piñones(here in Puerto Rico). I ike the info about the stock specs and everything. I'll be keeping an eye on it until it goes up for sale. But i was wondering is there anything I should be warned or expect from this specidic car(the bad things i mean).

My mom has had a 85 Z for about 6 years now. One thing I can tell you is, the non-turbo's ARE SLOW (My car is dramatically faster). They are heavy, and in most cases aren't very reliable. The back-end loves to come around on you, so drifting is almost out of the question. We've had to do a lot of work on her car. The tranny has been our biggest problem, but it's an auto. One thing I can say in the cars defense... the car with original motor has at least 200k miles. I'd love to have a turbo Z31, but I would advize against any 300zx that isn't boosted.

They probably don't make the best auto-x car, as turbo's usually aren't good for it. There is a guy on these forums with a turbo z31 (JoeyFeets), he could probably tell you everything you need to know about the z31, eample: how laggy it is. Hopefully he'll chime in sometime. I really have no experience with turbo Z's so, I won't be of much help.

Well Im gonna buy a new car pretty soon (one week) and I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions I have 10K to spend and I was set on buying a 2001 honda accord with 80k miles and it has like $2000 in after market upgrades but my dad said to wait a week and look for something else and we are gonna go car shopping in a few days.....

the car I would want the most is and rx-7 (3rd generation I think, kiesukes car) but I dont think I can find one for 10k.... anyways I want something that can be a show car and a "go" car also my 2nd choice would be a silvia but I cant find one so any suggestions and to as why I should get that car It would be very much appreciated.

where do you live. That affects price. Generally. A late model DSM has quite a bit of potential if you get the awd turbo version, they have pretty crappy stock suspensions though. A camaro is the most powerful car you can get for that price. A used celica can be had for that price as well.

What do you want in a car? 4 seats? Luxury? Power? Handling? And how much of each are you willing to give up for another.

if you want to buy a Rx-7 with 10k, you can get a beat up 3rd gen or a uber clean 2nd gen

^-- What he said. A good FD will fetch about 15 grand on a good rebuild, but keep in mind theres the cost of keeping the car- gas which is going up BIG time, the fact they get horrible gas mileage, and require premium- insurance, whatever breaking (usually going to happen often enough on an fd/rotary car unless its been taken car of properly the whole time). A good TII fc will run around 5k, around 3 for a good NA.

Theres a pinned topic pinned about this, ill merge this into there soon.

10K for a car?

Very easy decision...

Get a junker for about $1K, then invest the remaining $9K in savings of sorts... wink2.gif
