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.

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??

Toyota MR-S. Small on the outside but very roomy on the inside. Dunno if you can get one for $5k tho due to short production...

I agree, short production is actually one of the reason it is hard to look for a car like this. With a site that had all the information on car loans, automobiles and the car industry might help you find what you are looking for. This site here: Financing for auto loans, made it easy for me to determine which dealerships had the very best bargains near our place. I was able to get an excellent bargain on my new car and I'm very happy with the car I found. :wink:
