You could get a pretty nice LS1 Camaro/ Trans Am for 15K, wouldn't really have to be high mileage. You could get a real nice Mustang GT or a higher mileage Cobra (not 03-04 though) or Mach 1.

Other than wrecked/salvaged cars, that's about it. You might need to be a little bit more flexible with the year/price.
Those crown vics with the police packages are dogs, they are heavy, slow for a 302, bad gas mileage, but you can run those things to the ground because of the heavier duty everything, Uncle has a neighbor who bought one and the damn thing feels like a tank lol.

Notice he said absolutly nothing about gas mileage. NTM although slow, they're faster than your avg FWD grocery getter. ANd did I mention they were cheap.
