Question new show car project

whats up,
ya im the new guy so whats up ppl?!?! ok heres the question...

ok i have about $1200 to spend on my next project. its going to be a show car, so the drivetrain is not an issue. Wish i had more, but i run a business where i buy these cheap cars, n make em into show cars n sell em for like 4x what i paid for em. Id prefer a japenese car. and no t-tops or convertables ( got a door plan) and there needs to be a frame around the whole front door windows.

so if anyone has any suggestions plez help me out!

ps. i kno i said it dident matter but a FR or AWD car would b nice, cuz i mean hey speedy is good

You make it sound shady...you don't care about the drivetrain but sell them for 4x the amount you bought them for?

Please explain more. For your sake.

I know what you're trying to say. I just hope that you're not someone who believes that first impressions are everything. What about MR cars?

Does anyone else find it odd that someone who does this for a living and has a staff of 5 people is here asking what type of car to buy? The whole thread sounds like bullshit to me.

Well...buy the vehicle that sells the easiest in your area...I don't know your area so I can't comment on that.

You'll have better luck if you use English instead of Ebonics AND ask a plausible question. I was born at night, but not last night.

I'm simply not able to answer the question for you if you are not willing in the least to mention the predominant preference of the people you cater to. And if you can give me that...then you have your answer.
