Im thinking of getting a 1985 rx7 but im not too sure i want a good looking car thats somewhat fast.

For about $1500...
1982+ Nissan 280z.
1984+ supra
1988-92 camaro rs (v8 TBI w/ manual trans is fast, but car is too long and wide).
1986+ mitsubishi/chrysler starion/conquest turbo (this car is nice!).
1984+ mazda rx7 (my 1986 was smooth and rev happy).
Ford probe/Mazda mx6 (non-turbo & turbo)

You can get a 92 dodge caravan, 91 jetta, 96 aspire, 89 accord. These are just some cars i saw on Craigslist for under $1,500. No need for another good looking car right?

05-01-2006, 04:04 PM
Oh I forgot to add,

1985+ celica gt

05-01-2006, 07:11 PM
i like the mx6, rx7 and the starion/conquest turbo. But I cant find any starion/conquests for sale

Hey faryndil, i tried to send you a pm but your inbox is full. I noticed you drive a gts and was wondering what tires you use? I've searched on tirerack and there was only 3 types available. Is there something else that will fit besides our 215, 50, 15s? Didn't mean to steal your thread!

05-01-2006, 08:54 PM
I have no idea, Sorry when I needed tires I went to a discount tire place and let them pick some for me.

you can find a 5th gen celica gt/gts for that price.. usually a 90/91

05-02-2006, 07:00 AM
1986-89 MR2 NA in okay condition.

05-02-2006, 07:12 AM
89+ 240sx
90's delsol si
90's 3000gtr or vr4
89+ gti or golf

05-02-2006, 07:15 AM
You guys left out the early 90s Sentra SE-R. :(

Probably won't be able to find a 3000GT of any kind for $1500...

Mid to late 80s BMW 3-series with high miles, maybe.

DSMs in decent condition, probably some body issues.

I think I decided to start looking for a camaro/trans am/firebird with a manual transmission. If anyone knows where there is one around me please let me know.

05-02-2006, 10:08 PM
s13 240sx, thats all you should look for.

05-03-2006, 01:26 AM

2nd gen camry

05-07-2006, 01:43 AM
ya i test drove a 96 240sx today that I want so I might put one of my cars down on it and owe.

05-07-2006, 01:56 AM
If I can do it all over again I would definately do ae86 corolla. I'd go for a gts hatch. WOuldn't touch the sr5

05-07-2006, 10:30 PM
i got my 90 GTS for $1,000

05-07-2006, 10:53 PM
No way in hell you will find any 3000GT for that money.

05-09-2006, 12:17 PM
You can find a SOHC 3000GT for that money or a Stealth.

I vote non-turbo Supra Mk3 or a mk2
