Question Which Car?

I would like to know what would be a good car to start with for tuning. Something fairly cheap that i can make great. I don't want a POS either. Any advise would be wonderful. Thank you

Lets have a criteria...

Domestic, import, large or small displacement engine, coupe, sedan, compact, suv, good handling, lots of torque, high revving, old, new, price range, etc!

Get a Camaro, my uncle had one, and smoked everyone in it, and he was really fast, and it turned really good

Fairly cheap would be somewhere between free and 6000. I want to do a few mods. I would really like something that has DOHC. It needs to be four door thought. Need a place for a car seat when i'm not smoking other cars. I am open to any advice that anybody has to offer. Either domestic or import. I was thinking along the lines of an integra. but if i chose that, which integra should i get, what year, etc?????

Post-whoring douche bag

At any rate...buy a '79-82 Ford Fairmont/Lincoln Zephyr, then you can convert to a fuel injected 5.0 if you've got a mustang available to pull apart(a.k.a. junkyard)...everything bolts right in and you will have a quick car...they only weigh about 2900-3100lbs and you've got four doors.
