Re: sporty RWD car under 4k?

I like the look, fit and finish of the S14 infinately better, though.

I don't like mustangs. I HATE the 94-04 ones...the new ones are kinda ok-ish...the fox body ones are meh...the old ones are pretty cool...

...but the SVO...now THAT'S cool. Looks like poop, but it's rare and unique...something that can NOT be said for most Mustangs. Plus, it's got a turbo!!! I LOVE TURBOS.

FYI: The Mustang SVO was only made from 84-86. (Model years 84, 85, 85.5 and 86.) They all came with turbocharged, intercooled, SOHC engines that produced 175-205 hp depending on year.

Do you have any idea how much one of those SVOs in anywhere near good condition cost? Let alone how hard they are to maintain?

Re: sporty RWD car under 4k?

Maintenance wise, I dunno. Hard to find? Kinda. And they're not cheap if you can find a nice one...not EXPENSIVE for a car of it's age, but they can get up there.

If you're gunna look, look for an 85.5 one...they have the most power stock but they're also the rarest....REALLY hard to find.

Right, they are nice cars, but if the original poster still has a $4k budget, I doubt an SVO is feasible.

Re: sporty RWD car under 4k?

how come I can find a few 4th gen f-bodies for cheap not even with tons of miles (i.e 200K)?
Autos mostly..

Re: sporty RWD car under 4k?

Actually, they are. You wouldn't find an immaculate example of one for 4G or less, but you could find one in decent shape that runs well if you look enough.

Re: sporty RWD car under 4k?

Mazda RX-7 is a really fun car. Fast, unique, tuneable. I think they are awesome and once you get in to the rotarys you will too.
