Buying A New Car: Any Advice?

I currently have a 1999 4 Cylinder beater Toyota Camry. It is currently in the body shop getting detailed and repainted for sale. I intend to get about $5000 for it and I have another $7000 in the bank. What do you recommend me buying? I am looking for something quick off the line with a manual transmission. If i can find a car for $7-9k I will invest the rest of my money into performance and exterior body work. Any ideas?

A Honda Accord wont be very fast off the line stock...

Try a DSM or, maybe, an old WRX or STi...

I suggest you get a twin turbo 300zx, you can get them for less then 8 grand and they're very fast cars. Or, if your willing to buy a car off ebay, you can use the advanced search features on ebay motors and look for a car less then 9 grand or whatever your price is. Just do some research man, you'll find something.
