Need a new ride... and advice on what to get.
Ok, I know my screen name and everything is LoudCrownVic. I love my car, I really do, but at 145900 she's getting tired. I just changed the oil after 2500 miles like I always do, and I had some chewed up metal come out. ******* cops driving my car too hard...
And with gas at 2.00 a gallon and rising, the V8 power is becoming a passing craze.
But, since I got my CrownVic, I've been on the lookout for a replacement, but I can't decide which vehicle will best suit my needs. I'm looking for about 27 or less mpg with average driving, which unless it's a Lexus or someting rules out a V8. I would like the car to be highly modifyable with a good strong aftermarket, and I'd like to have room for my 15" L7. And above all it has to be cool and fast. I'll be going to college next year, so keep that in mind if you respond.
Id like to find an older car preferrably that has no major problems except fading paint, ****** interior, and a few cracked hoses and bad plug wires and ressurect it, in the price range of 1000 bucks or less, or get something nice(er) for up to 3500 bucks.
Some cars I've been considering within the realm of possiblility:
Nissan 300ZX, early '90's non turbo 5-speed or 80's with turbo 5-speed
Mazda RX7, 80's with 5-speed
Lexus SC400 (if the price is right)
Toyota Supra, 80's,- 1990
Volkswagen Golf (strictly audio vehicle)
Eagle talon/Mitzu Eclipse early 90's (if you can't beat em, Join em)
Ford Probe (even though everyone who ever owned a Probe beat the hell out of it)
No hondas, MAYBE a Ponticac or a Chevy.
Please, i need suggestions, and might just buy from you if you have
