new car... what to get...

ok..... im getting over my vr6 obbsesion... it came to me that the car (to me) is a little to cute.... im looking for somthing more aggresive... first of all... how much do you think i can sell it for? its a 1997 vr6 glx jetta... leather... all the goodies basicallly.
and second, WHAT SHOULD I GET??? i know i can sell the jetta for at least 7k.... ( i looked at ebay, and saw what they were going for, i may be wrong so please correct me)
i want a car thats maybe around 5k... it needs to be somthing easy to work on with lots of aftermarket support.. and PLEASE a manual transsmision.. i cant stand automatic... no civics, accords, or anything that so many people have already though... i have a few in mind already, but i want other peoples oppinion..

Dude...you're still in middle school...I wouldn't start yet.

But I'd take an RSX, depending on what you want in a car...

Not as in 1/4 mile times, and stuff, but dents, and optional features, and aftermarket stuff, etc...

OOOO lol... small minor old car dents i dont mind... but nothing major... what i want in aftermarket is pretty much all around... everything major, i dont care about things like accesories. NO it absolutly cant be a base model... i cant deal with that... (i dont know why, im just obsesive over things like that...)
EDIT... i dont want an american company car, it needs to be an import... im not into dommestics.

jesus christ, you'd consider buying a 5k vehicle for nothing?! what the hell is wrong with you?


how about you grow up first, then think about buying a car, even if it's to "learn off" of.

and all this bullshit about it being NOT a base model, and HAS to have a stick...you admitted yourself that you won't be driving it. WTF.

He's a typical teenageer. Full of opinions that are carved in stone, and no actual knowledge or experience to base those opinions ON. And at 13 already complaining about a car he already HAS...

If my 13 year old stepson was like that, he wouldn't GET a f*cking car.
