Ok here's the deal. I'm having a hard time deciding what car to get for under 13K. What ever car I get must be '98 or newer, and under 50K miles. Things I'm looking for in a car are high reving, high output, quick, nimble, and excelent handleing. If price wasn't a concern I'd get either a Celica GTS or WRX. Cars I've had in the past that might give you an idea of what I'm looking for are, '95 Honda Delsol Si, '96 Acura Integra SE, and I'm currently driving a '88 mazda RX7. Any ideas would be greatly apprieceated.

well, you could always drop 10k into the rx7 and the other 3 on me for the recomendation:D seriously though, shopping around is the only way to find out, cause those general limitations means your looking at hondas :dogpile: (dogpile) and miata's for the most part.

it's true it's true...
hondas are the best cheap, nimble, high output, well ok high revving..:) cars out there.. if you liked the sol, you'd like a miata, they are pretty ok .. but maybe you can get your hands on a used prelude, if you liked the sol, you'll love the lude..

Have you considered BMW? Best handling cars in the world. Near 50/50 weight distribution always and rear wheel drvie.

1998 328is
2000 Z3 conv
1998 318is

Or an Audi under 13k?

1998 A4 1.8 Turbo
1998 A4 2.8 Quatro

I don't know, its sounds like you haven't narrowed down what you want enough.

I'd check out the nissan family if i was you.

'98 or newer, and under 50K miles. Things I'm looking for in a car are high reving, high output, quick, nimble, and excelent handleing.

If you look real hard you could find a sweet ass 240SX. i just saw one for 12,900 that was a 98 with 36k on the odometer. but these cars are pretty rare, you dont see many of them out there. and they have limitless potential for modding/swapping. Just my opinion.

thats true cali has shitloads of every car. we even have some 240's down here. but hardly any of the S14 97-98 model years. the older S14s are aight but the 97-98 have a mean ass looking front end.
