thanks again

don't take Oomba's advice.

Good advice! Now Odds, I dont know about where you live, but in Chicago I've seen Nissan 300ZX's going for $3500 as well as S13's (Nissan 240SX). Of course the mileage isn't exactly ideal, but their fun to drive and not to mention they can be modified to be fast as Phuk! Personally, (if i had the money) I'd start out with an S13 (although I would have preferred an S14 but you'll need at least 5k), and then save up some money for a SR20DET engine swap. my

the S13 comes with CA18DE/DET and SR20DE/DET, also, the S14 comes with SR20DET with a T25BB if you get the right model.

also, the 240sx that you speak of isn't code-named the S13, it's code-named the RPS13, the S13 looks like this; http://users.senet.com.au/~sjhomes/P...%20S13%201.jpg.

you're speaking of the hatchback model, here in australia, they're called a 180sx and come with a CA18DET, also, the 200sx model that comes with a JDM SR20DET is here, but RARE as a nun with a wet cunt.

hey guys, yesterday my dad and I went on out to check out a few cars. there were a few we knew that we're definitely not going to buy, and a few more that were worth considering. there are quite a few that we need to check on carfax, but other than that, they look good. here they are:
1. '88 Civic (Si/HF/DX?) HB w/ b18a block. (mileage?) $2k obo
2. '90 Civic Si HB w/ 134k (engine uncertain). $2950 obo
3. '95 Integra, assuming this is all stock. $2500 obo
4. '89 Civic Si w/ DOHC b16. $1600 obo
5. '90 Civi Si w/ new eng. but don't know which. 70k. $3k obo

all of the above still need to be checked on carfax before we can even go look at them. the rest have been checked on carfax, and have clean titles.

1. '90 Civic Si HB, 50k, engine swapped (but don't know which eng.) $2150 obo
2. '95 Eclipse GS, 151k. stock, $3500 obo

what should I do? heh...
thanks guys.

Out of all those...at this point I like the #1 that has been checked out by carfax. It has low miles, and a low price. And it's an Si, but it would be good to know which engine is in there. Hopefully it's a good one, if not, then I would check out some of the other Si's on the list and see how many miles they have and stuff.

You can get far better cars for the money you have. Don't go with any of the cars you listed.

importluva; what kind of cars would you suggest? I'm in the LA area, so I have quite a selection.
