I'm having a bit of trouble deciding what I want my next car to be. I'm gonna fix up my Camaro a bit more (almost done ). But then, I don't know what I want to get.

I know I want something with four seats, so that rules out a 240/280z (my favorite cars in the world ) and I want something sporty (and keep in mind if it's a tuner it won't be stock, so factor in body kits and stuff!) and at least a 4-speed manual transmission, but I want something that I know's gonna be easy to work on too, and I've never owned an import, but both me and my dad have always been around GM cars, so we can really work on them and know what's wrong with one if something happens.

I'll include a poll of cars that I'm considering, but post other suggestions too! And keep in mind, I'm selling a third-gen Camaro, so I'm not gonna have a huge budget...

EDIT: And forgot to mention, looks are DEFINITELY the most important factor!

yeah good luck fitting gear in any of those and buying a 2nd gen firebird in decent condition for that price, not to be rude but 3rd gen camaros arent somethin people really want now a days. also a supra? do you even know how much a 2jz cost without a body and a tranny, better yet are you sure you even know about cars more than just looks

I came in here expecting something else too.

I voted RX7. I don't know which RX7 year you meant. FC or FD both are sweet IMO.
I say 240Z over 280Z are its body looks way better.

Muscle all the way.


I'm gonna have a decent amount of cash pretty soon and I'm planning on dropping 10 grand of it on a 1973 Chevy Nova with a 383 Stroker and a B&M Megashifter kit. Pretty much fully restored and modded to the teeth. Five hundred horsepower mothafucka.

Muscle cars are aesthetically more pleasing to me at least. I'll never be ale to afford to run one though. :P

find me starting teachers and pilots salary troll.

For teachers: http://www.payscale.com/research/US/All_K-12_Teachers/Salary/by_Years_Experience
It states that the average salary of a teacher within his/her first teaching year is roughly $35,000.
And for pilots, this is quoted directly from that Newsweek article I linked.
Starting pay for pilots at a major carrier is around $30,000 per year.

I'm pretty sure if you look hard enough you can get an Evo 9 for around your price range. If no luck then most certainly an 8.

In England, you'd have to take out a second mortage to afford the insurance and petrol costs. Hence why all my mates drive Fiesta's.

I will probably end up selling it, but I want at least a project car. I get bored when I don't have anything left to work on, so I sell it.
