Well I turned 16 finally a few months ago and its time for me to find a
first car. I dont know much about cars yet,:ohcrap: So I came to this
forum to find out some stuff and maybe an idea of what I should get. Well
there are a few cars on my mind I'd like to have they are the Nissan 240sx
Mazda Miata or a late 80's Toyota supra. what would be the best for a first
car and something i can slowly build up and race the buddys :laughing: so
if you could give me your thoughts of each of the cars. thanks!!!
id personally choose the MX5 to start off with at a young age as its small, has a reliable engine (the 1.6 lump is apparently the best to choose for smooth running and reliability) yet they do look good!
Drive each one and see which you enjoy most. My first choice is the 240SX, closely followed by the Miata, closely followed by the Supra lol.
personally, id have the Supra!
can you put much hp into a miata? and what are good first mods to put into it i dont want to just throw in a turbo and blow the engine :ohcrap: like a jackass lol and do you think you could get teh same amount of hp and torque into a miatta as a 240sx ?
i like the 88-89 supras and i know they can be really fast cars but i was wondering if a miatta could be just as fast i like them all the same im just wondering wahts the best for the money there all about the same price ranging from 2000-5000 i like the 93+ supras but they seem to be like 12,000+ and theres no way in hell i can afford that lol
I'd assume you don't mean a very recent Miata (MX-5). If I were in your
shoes, I would go with the Supra, then the 240, then the Miata. You can get
a fair amount of power in a Miata, but where it would make up for it versus
other cars is in weight and in handling, usually.
I'd still grab a Supra.
Me too, but it would have to be the 3.0-litre Twin Turbo model....In this guy's case though, I'd probably go for the MX-5 too, although none of the cars he mentioned are necessarily great for a first car!
the 3.0 litre TT was a real POS, trust me, I had one for about 2 years. The Mx-5 is a chick car also... I would go with a nice ford mustang GT with straight pipes. just one for the ladies... hehe but use your own discretion! :thumbs:
In that case all Supra's of that era are POS's then? Because the 3.0-litre TT is the best of the bunch. I'm not sure I believe anything you say, Solarr, mainly because you seem to think you earn $70,000 in a day....not impossible I guess...If your initials are B.Gates. By the way, you'll get some opinion about calling the Maita a chicks car, lol.
i quite like the miata/mx-5, its a cheap thrills car! cheaper to insure than most cars of its type and efficient enough as a daily driver! (my step dad had the 1.8 sport until he got himself a ford expedition:laughing: )
I vote for MX-5! Mazda has always been interesting...:clap:
