    sports car under $5000

    i have been looking for a z31 300zx but its difficult to find a good condition one in the midwest. so im looking at other cars as well.

    i have about $5000 to spend, im looking for something sporty and aftermarket support would be a plus. this will be my daily driver . only restrictions would be im a big guy so no miatas/other small cars. and must be rwd or awd.any ideas would be great.

    so far i have

    z31 300zx
    mk2 supra (turbo swaped?)
    mk3 supra
    sc300
    s14
    3rd gen camaro iroc
    94-95 mustang gt
    3000gt vr4 (unlikely for this price)
    bmw e36 325
    ae86


    any more you guys can add would be great.

    Galant VR4

    Can still find these for around 5K. I have one locally that is for $2600 and has been babied by the original owner! Too bad you live so far away, I have an '85 Z31 Turbo sitting in my driveway that needs a new home :wink:

    I would eliminate the 3rd gen camaro. One of the worst cars you can get. Plus 95% of them are automatic transmissions. The L98 engines in those were horrible with a stock 1/4 mile of 15.5. Very slow for v8. I know my gm's like the back of my hand, it would take a lot to make that car fast. they do look nice though.

    Sweet orange paint. Don't think I've seen that one before. I know of one other that's been painted a burnt orange... maybe it's the same as yours?? Haha...

    Where are you located??
