I'm not planning on racing it, I just want to have something that will tear up friends' cars. I've been driving beaters for a while now to save money, and I have enough to spend 4-5k on a car, and still have enough money to repair it, should something happen. I also have a truck to drive temporarily, if I need it.
All I'm looking for is a little advice on which direction to head.. should I buy an old mustang or camaro, should I buy a rebuilt engine, or just try to find one with low mileage? Should I get an import that will support some kind of bigger engine and do it that way? Should I rebuild an eclipse awd and add nitrous?
I really don't know what I want, which is why I'm asking for suggestions. Or even if you have a friend who made it ~13seconds for 5k or less, let me know what they did, please!
