Car suggestions?

It seems like i have been posting a lot lately and this question has probably been asked before, but oh well. I only have $3000-$4000 to spend on a car, so what should i get?

either civic,integra,old prelude, or olds supra or rx-7. Thats what i would get with 3-4 thousand. But its all about what you like and want. shop around and try to find something you like, dont ask others what car you SOULD like. ight, late

Now that i think about it, it does seem kind of stupid to ask others what i should like, heck i already know what i like, but its not in the 3-4 thousand dollar price range!!!(2004 cobra)

I can say I have same problem with choosing.. I would probably give around 7K . What should I consider if I look at gas buring and power.. I was thinking of mazda miata or honda civic. What do you think?

i wouldnt go civic they dont really have that much potential, the acura integra gsr is a good car, you could easily find one with under 75000 miles for under $7000. The GSR also has a lot of aftermarket parts.

Acura Integra GSR. Was finding them listed between $3,300-7,000...



Honda Civic tricked out. That may cost a little more...

man, for 7, you could swing a turbo buick...prob not an 86-7 GN, but a T-type...same engine and everything, just not black and a little lighter....
www.gnttype.org will show you how to for $1500 or less go from bone stock 13.8-14.2 down to 11s or even 10s!
