My '48 Willys CJ2A. I picked this up while living in Huntington Beach for $500. It doesn't get driven much now up in Seattle, but it's alot of fun to bring out on sunny days.

My daily driver is a 2004 Toyota Highlander Limited. My wife drives a 2011 Toyota Corolla Sport.

I've also got a KTM 450 dual sport.

Anyways, I am broke and been busting my ass for the past month riding down to Labor Ready working with crack heads and shaking my hairy ass for old men on web cams. Paid some debts, made a bit more... Anyways I am looking for a cheap car for when it's to far to commute by bike. Needs to fit a bike inside, have AC, run without immediate costly repair. Most important cheap to insure and economical, all for under $1,500.

Anyways, this is the top of the list:
1990 Geo Prizm 4-Door Hatch with a claimed just over 100,000 leaky sunroof and an inoperable A/C... Looks good and does not smell to bad. But I maybe able to get it for $750!

Weren't you trying to decide whether to buy a Bentley like, a month ago?

Yes... I want one and will own one someday. But it would have been stupid of me to buy, would empty out my investment/savings accounts. Luckily this forum pointed out what was an obvious stupid decision. It was also older then me and would probably cost a fortune to maintain, even with me doing all the work.

that's a tough set of requirements. maybe a Jeep Cherokee, or an Acura Integra (it's a hatch, but not sure if it can fit a bike)? or get an E30 BMW and a bike rack...

I've never met anyone who has to go to Labor Ready AND has an investment/savings account AND is legitimately looking into purchasing a Bentley.

It's tough to give advice to someone who isn't setting realistic guidelines when asking for advice.

maybe a Volvo wagon

you might need to spend a bit more

don't let high mileage scare you off if they have been maintained, they run forever

Really? I have worked a decent job at some point in my life and what I consider an investment account is not very big... If you go back to the Bentley conversation, it was worth about $10,000. I could spend more then $1,500 on a car, but I don't see why when I only want/need a car for the weekend...

Thanks, I always forget about Autotrader for bottom of the market. Looks lovely and will check into it. I know Volvo's are reliable. But how are parts availability and cost? Are they easy to work on?
