Luckily I have never found myself out of work, but I have laid off people before. Lots of people. That is even worse than getting layed off yourself apparently.

I had to be guarded when I was told to unemploy 267 people in 1978... They had to drive me about with me ducking in the back of the car because angry people were hanging around. That was scary. It is so hard having 24 hour protection because every time you see them, oyu just think about why they are there.

Sweet man, now get yourself a 924 Turbo

You can always a daily beater, but a 924 turbo would probably be the best investment as a fun car. Reliable, inexpensive to tune, and they have about as much performance potential as you could want.

Sure, every 924 left the factory with a forged crank and forged rods, the weak link in the shortblock would be the pistons. If you convert to EFI, either a stand alone or a swap from another EFI 4 cylinder, you can push 300hp or so. I'm not sure what the stock crank can take, but it's been proven reliable for 275hp in the Carrera GTS club sport.

A 924 turbo weighs in at around 2700 lbs, but there are any number of places to save weight. Keeping your interior and air condition intact, you could shave 400 lbs, for a total weight of 2300 lbs and 300hp. Even if you completely total your engine, you can pick up a parts car for less than $1000.

I'm paying $150 for my engine, even though it doesn't run.
