you should deffinately go out and look for a gremlin. thats your best bet. so many mods, plus damn other street racers will think you have a damn sweet ride.

How much are you looking to spend? Some good bang-for-buck cars are the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, Pontiac Trans Am, Ford Mustang GT, Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, and Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4.

If you're mainly gonna drag race/street race, stick with the American muscle: Mustang GT w/ 5.0 or Camaro Z28/Trans Am. Or are you gonna do some autocross/road racing as well?

Alright then, I'd say your best bet is a 98-02 Camaro Z28/SS or Pontiac Firebird Formula/Trans Am. The 5.7L V8 LS1 from the Corvette is one SICK motor, especially coupled with the six-speed manual transmission. If you wanna get a Japanese import, go with a 3000GT VR-4, Eclipse GSX, or 300ZX TT. I'd say Supra TT, but they are really overpriced and the 300ZX TT will give you more bang-for-buck. The two Mitsus are AWD and turbocharged, which means sick launches and cheap HP gains.

thank you, i thought i was the only one who put 16 yr old, no experienced driver wanting to be a badass. only to find out he has no skills when he smashes into a family of four and kills them all.:nono:

i guess you could always put a supercharger or twin turbo set up in a golf cart and fly tho bro.

Street Racing=No.

Take it to the track. I hope you lose your license if you become a 'street racer'. :disappoin
