How can we possibly help you if you don't help us? You failed to list any qualities other than "cheap, non starter car" that your looking for. Price is a huge piece of information that we on the other end can't fill in for you. Information as to what size of car, kind of car, transmission preference, etc. would be very helpful and is very much needed in order to better help you. So please do us a favor and help us help you. Basic info is all we need.
Earshot- how do you know he's looking for a fast car?
