Good luck! I've been in a few wrecks. Never fun. I hope any injuries are minor and recovery time is quick.

I'm about to be in a fun position for a month or two. I'll be otherwise car-less thanks to a great offer on the P85D. My next car won't be made for said month or two.

This will be the first time since I was 16 that I'm staring into the car abyss. I'm thinking of some of the cars from my HS years that I always wanted, and especially, harkening back to a manual. This would be a complete beater and I don't care if it only lasts those 2 months for 2k or less upfront and whatever it goes for as a junker-for-parts.

Suggestions?

Hardy har har.

I'm willing to do minimal repairs (not baller @GreenFrog levels though since I don't have garage space for the time being).

I was thinking about something like a Volvo 240, a Corolla, yada yada. Since the timeline is pretty short, I don't care as long as it's a just a different kind of fun.

Pontiac 6000
Chevy Cavalier
Smart car?

Not really manuals

Edit: I actually learned stick on a 240 volvo (with push button overdrive). That was one fun car (I think it was a mid 80's version). Get one of those, and be baller with a manual crank sunroof.

Mid-80's Supra :)

I quite like that suggestion. smile.gif If I can find one in working or very close to working condition, a definite option. My first car was an '88 Corolla, so I'm roughly familiar with the mid to late 80s Toyotas (though the 4A-F engine mine had shared almost nothing with the Supra lineage). It might stretch the budget, but we'll see. If I can get most of the money back, then it might not be the worst idea.

Sidenote: Why do so many Minnesotans drive audis? Just an observation Ive made

The quality of their AWD in a place that gets 50" of snow each winter + a generally affluent large metro.

@ramuman, send me a link to craigslist in your area.

Mk3 supra, z31 zx.. . .

Something cool enough to contemplate keeping on the side.

That $850 z31 300zx in Baltimore would clean up nice with a detail and minimal work.
As an example.

Holy sheeiit! You had a 88 Corolla?
I had an 89, Corolla's create car guys. foo.gifcheers.gif

A rusty yellow 240 was almost my first car. I believe I told my mother "I'd rather take the bus & train"

You basically asked the same question that rtc's been going on about for awhile now. So...Miata?
post #23593 of 26282
Miata or a lightly used Ten:10
post #23594 of 26282
90's halo car, 6-speed manual, cool car, parts with good resale value...🤔

How about the McLaren F1? It ticks all the boxes

That made me chuckle heartily. The emoji makes it.
