Hi, I'm 23 and I'm looking for a car to get. I can't really afford to get a super nice car right away, but I'd like to get something older that has a lot of potential and can be fixed up nicely over time. I'd like to keep it under 5k. I live in so cal and have several tracks not too far away. Drifting looks pretty cool and fun. Is it hard? I can drive manual. Recommendations? I was looking at older BMW 3 series, but I'm not sure how good those are for souping up. Thanks.
*Note to self, the words "souping up" is starting to sound retarded now-a-days.*
