I suggest you look for a cheap Mitsubishi Eclipse (1995-1997), a cheap Acura Integra (1994-1997), or maybe a cheap Nissan 240SX (1995-1997).
NOTE: I only put down years that would be priced relatively low. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Spend 8k for a GSX, and then spend the other 12k trying to fix it.

I hope you diddnt think I was saying that GSX's are worth buying. I meant fix it as in literally repair it, not "fix it up"

Look for a 2nd Gen MR2 (1991-1995 in the US), should be able to find one in decent shape for 3-4 grand, then another 10 grand max into it to make it a high 12 to low 13 car. or find a 1st gen for about 1500 and do the same engine stuff for a 200 lb lighter version. I'll let other people chime in with different suggestions.

MR2's are cheap to be 12 second cars. $1000 worth of stuff gets you into mid to low 13's

I was giving him the worst case scenario, wherein he wasn't able to get a 3SGTE equipped model and had to do an engine swap, and was including other opgrades like suspension, tires, brakes, wheels, etc.

MR2's good cars. They're cheap, light, and fast. I like them too. I want to get like a 94 or something. Veilside has a sweet body kit for them. expensive a hell though.

What about like a 88-89 Toyota Supra? They are pretty cheap and the 7mgte is turbocharged. I think the stock is like a 130-140 hp. it wouldnt take much money to fix it up either.

Re: what car? new   Posted Fri Aug 18, 06   3:11 AM    [re: italian_ninja] 

the 7mgte is a very limited motor, despite the factory turbo. the preferred engines for the MKIII are the 1jzgte or the 2jzgte (being 2.5l and 3.0l twin sequentially turbocharged inline 6's, respectively). one of my best friends swapped in a 1jz with some simple mods and a homebrew intercooler (stock fuel pump/injectors) and runs low 13's on shitty tires.

oh, and on the original topic, were I to do it again, i would start off with something gutless and rwd, probably a stock 240sx, s13 preferrebly. After a year or two of practice driving/maintaining the car, I would then purchase a MkIV supra TT, possibly higher mileage but as close to stock as possible (they are VERY fast stock, and capable of stupid fast speed right from the factory). Having worked on and driven both an FD RX-7 and MkIV TT, if I could afford it, I would purchase the Supra. It is easier to work on, much more reliable, faster in a straight line for less money, albeit not as fun to drive around a turn. This is speaking from several years of regularly driving both, each starting in stock form and progressing to BPU/+ cars. Its also worthy to note, the FD is broke and in my garage, the Supra is running great and making more horsepower.
