Good first....well secound car for me, read please

Ok well im 16, i drive a Sterling 825SL right now, nothing special but it gets me around and is preety nice and everything, anyways I am looking for something cheap like no more then around 5-7 grand. I would take a american muscle car to smoke the fags at school that drive the hondas/acuras and think they are fast. Only thing is gas efficeny, and im not the best fan of domestic but i like old muslce cars. Basically I like AWD cars so I can go somewhat offroad and i like the handling , but it doesent have to be, i was looking at either a 87 supra, a honda RT4WD wagon, a older AWD subaru ( i love subarus but no money for a newer one), a DSM (dont know much about them just that most are AWD), or a older Audi cause thats what my brother has and he loves it, in conclusion im looking for something cheap, AWD but dosent have to be, easily modded to get fast, and something your everyday person doesent have

thanks

everyone has one...
everyone wants a unique car easy to mod for cheap..
that's why they drive hondas cause they are cheap ...
an old audi would be good.. or an old toyota..
but keep looking

hmm... i would say an old RX-7 TII.. (FC) with a few bolt ons etc... you would be burning past any honda/acura/domestic your school may have. for a 10+ year old car, i think it looks pretty damn good.
i just hope u are a gearhead.. esp with rotary engines..


its not often i see a TII on the streets..
good luck finding one.

I like the 944 idea, those cars are dope. Hard to find though, and I dunno if you can find a good one for 5 to 7 grand. Also, if something breaks on it, it's really expensive to get parts for.

more like 60-80k miles
but thats mainly for the turbo charged rotaries. if you were looking into getting an N/A rotary.. those things are about bulletproof as you can get.. with the right maintenance that is.

944 are nice too. but something to think about.. whos gonna fix it for you? im not sure about the old porsches, but i dun think that the local gas station is equipped to repair a 2002 911 turBo.. you would need to go to a specialty car repair shop. and thats gonna cost you some major $$$

if you don't mind taking your time i would suggest an older rx7 like we talked about.. it's modable, but still packs some nutz to start off with ..
but unless you import something, you'll always end up with something, someone already has..

well I just didnt want a honda or acura like everyone else has, something they wouldnt expect to be beaten by, since they are mostly stuck up and think they have the fastest cars in the world it would be fun to be smoking them

if you want to get something someone can always think they can smoke then get a hyundai or a kia or something along those lines..
the new tiburon isn't bad..
i would never think to bother with one of those.. but they got some nutz..
