I do hate milk and like icecream and whats wrong with disliking ford and liking mazda? I liked my 97 t-bird when I got a new paint job and body kit...... for like a month than I needed a new transmission and needed the A/C fixed which the A/C was shitty to start with before it broke and than a new intake manifold which ford is currently in court for to see if that will get recalled and that my friend is why I think ford is a royale pain in my ass.
Now I am not saying a mazda rx-7 3rd gen is gonna be the best reliable engine in the world but that has nothing to do with why I want it.
and if im not mistaken I just asked for a few nice sports cars that I can go look at with my dad when we go shoping....... god damn now I know why I rarely post on this forum....

What would be the best year/trim Miata to get if I want the sportiest handling (among the years/trims) and cheapest upgrading for power (enough power to hit about 15.0 in the 1/4, for *example*)?

i dont know about miatas, but you could get a 1st gen for dirt cheap practically.


Im a tall guy and would just feel ridiculous driving one though.

91 model is the lighest model of them all. But if anything, any model is a good model, which I suggest is the sport "R" trim that comes with an LSD, Bilstein Suspension and such. I prefer the 01 model but rite now Im stuck with 96 model which is ok but rite now, i have the need. THE NEED FOR SPEED!!! cap.gif

Thanks. I'm just curious for now as the car I have now I got fairly recently. But the engine of the MSP isn't built for turboing so I can't add much power unless I build internals, and the suspension is already pretty damn good, so I would need a lot of $$$ for either power OR handling. Plus the fact that it's FWD... So I'm anticipating the day I get a Miata or some car comparable. Not that I don't love my Protege. =)

ok, i think this is the place to ask, i was wondering what would be a good first car (daily driver, work, school, arcade, everwhere in between) i have a few choices that i would like to have. So i am just asking which is better costwise and reliability wise i guess..

From An early

Rx-7

300zx

and 240sx

basically price range like 0-4500'ish give or take a few hundred

is what im looking at as of right now, any suggestions on other cars or cars i have listed will be kindly welcomed.. thanks

my computer is broken as of a few weeks ago, im at the school computer, i wont read what/if any person has wrote until next wednesday when i have computer again, thanks again.

If its just a daily driver/beater then I wouldnt bother with any of those vehicles. Just get a cheap car with good AC/stereo and is reliable, easy to drive in bad weather conditions and cheap to insure.
Otherwise:

well, i want a car that looks cool, i don't want a cheap like civic or anything. I am sure any car i get ill drop some mods in it. Also i want one that is different from what everyone around here has, but also still good.

You just want a good looking car for a daily driver.As far as looks are concerned Thats up to you since that is basicly just an opinion. I would recommend avoiding a turbo car or something that will only hinder its practicality as a dairly driver(insurence, gas milage, duribilitiy/reliability and most turbo cars have had the hell beaten out of them from previous owners).
A 2g eclipse RS/GS are nice looking IMO(I have NO complains about my RS as a daily driver!) 3000GT's are really cool looking too, not sure what kind of gas milage they get... or how reliable the base models are. Perhaps an Acura Integra coupe or honda prelude? Those can be nice looking as well.

Celica, Supra, MR2... you can find older generations easily in that price range.

If it were me, I'd go with a 5th Gen. Celica, but they are the weakest of the Celica breed, so...

Sounds like you just need a beater. Just find the nicest car you can find in that price range... I dont have anything bad to say about the celica's. Sporty, cheap to run and cheap to insure. So I guess thats my vote.. Unless you want something bigger and less cramped then I would say a Camry or corolla? *shrugs

edit: Okay I guess your looking for a sporty car... Then I will say Say a sport model Celica... that would be a good buy IMO
I also highly recommend sportier honda's such as the civic si's.

Since its your first car I would say avoid any idea's of a 'project' car. Get something to learn to drive on now and work on the basics before worring about the limitations of the car. Giving a sports car to someone who is learning to drive is like giving me the macromedia fireworks software program. Sure its cool to say I have it but I'm not able to use it for what its worth and I am just as well off with MS paint(this is a true story btw). No need to worry about reliability, gas money, insurence, getting your self overly caught up in a sitsuation your unable to correct(thinks of the 16year old kid with the viper... wrapped around a tree...).

200sx as in the turbo 2.0L or...?(they made so many different 200sx's..) IF it is then I wouldnt recommend it for insurence and gas milage issues. and I'm sure if flohtingpoint was here he could give you a 10page essay about the engine being very capable of being a major pain in the ass... but then again he whines allot. tongue.gif

I'm thinking HONDA is what your looking for. Super cheap, super reliable, great on gas and in their sportier packages they can be a hoot to drive too if thats a concern. So yeah, I say find the nicest 4cyl. honda you can find.

*also its hard to say becuase I'm not sure what all cars are imported/produces in Australia...
