Cheap car to Supe up? (make fast)

1st of all, id like to know ya'll's idea on the best car to supe up,
2nd, im getting a new car and would rather get an average car and supe it up, so... what would be a reasonable price car that can really be suped up
3rd are there any terribly slow cars that with work can be really fast? ya know win a few bets here and there with them not knowing whats under the hood.

what i want to do is put alot of work into over time, spending little bits every now and then to eventually make it really fast, so a fast 0-60 and a quick 1/4.

would like the car to be under 5k and the mods to be reasonably cheap.

thanks

lol, it was a joke. A Neon that was "modded" but wasn't exactly an SRT4, but almost one. Therefore and SRT3 and a half. *thinks to himself "I should have said SRT2"*

He wants to make the car fast ... never mentioned ricey type aesthetic mods.

I'd say he's probably less of a ricer than you are.

Supe? That kinda gave it away to me.

Can you show me where it says he's going to street race the car? I can't seem to find that anywhere. Or is this another case of putting words in other peoples mouths to help support your opinion?
