Yeah, I start too many threads asking for advice buying a car. Anyway, long story short I was out car shopping and one place happened to have a 1993 Toyota Corolla. It was red, automatic, stock everything, 4 banger, NICE interior, a hint of rust, 178K miles, and no price tag. Maybe I'm old before my time, but I value reliability, economy, and cost of ownership over the "fun to drive" factor.
Anyway, if you were in my position, what would you consider a reasonable price? $1000, $2000, $3000? If it's under $1000, I'll definitely pick it up. If it's higher, where would you draw the line?
EDIT: After Christmas I'll have a cheap digicam that I can take pics of my finds with. Until then, sorry. =\
