    • If you want a legit cool car for under $10,00? Look for any high number production Alfa Romeo model from the 70s and 80s; they look good, sound good, and perform, + the added benefit of owning an Italian sports car. I have 2 of these things. One only has 38,000 miles, it's 100% original, complete, almost running, and I got a bunch of NOS parts, and basically the car's history in the trunk, and it was only $500. Edit: I forgot an apostrophe

  • In my search of a sporty car that I think gets a lot of unwarented hate, especially with earlier models looking like a "girly" car, that you can get for under $10k: The Audi TT. Sure, it may not have the largest engines and the Mk2s are automatic only, you can find Mk1s with manual transmission and a 6 cylinder for fairly cheap. To add a small extra bonus, it comes standard with a single turbo and comes with either FWD or AWD. Also, if you want, they also come in a convertible if you so choose (though the rollover mortality rates on convertibles, get a roll cage). The Mk2s, you get sightly more horsepower but otherwise is the same car but had some minor aesthetic differences. By the time the value of some of the newest Mk3 goes down, you can get one with a slight body modification and have anyone who doesn't know any better think you're driving around an Audi R8. It is literally one of the cheapest sports cars out there for no real reason and can still be fun to drive. (Also, for everyone who thought TT stood for Twin Turbo; it stands for the Tourist Trophy races way back when it was a big thing in the mid 1900s)

  • If you're going to get an E46 but not an M3 get a 330ci/i. Don't get the 325i because you might as well get a 328i with slightly more power and bigger displacement.

  • Good amount of nice early 2000's mustangs around the 5-8k range, and just look for a while, and you can find just about any honda/ford/chevy/nissan/TOYOTA from there down in the same age range. Go up to 10k, and you'll find much nicer of the same thing

  • Here in Jersey Honda Accords are usually first cars. Got my 2001 accord for 500$ looking for a second car and probably will be a newer accord. Im not sure about other locations but i think honda accords are probably best bang for your buck.

  • I picked up a 110,000 mile 2004 GTO M6 for $8500 out the door from a DEALER. Only issue is fading paint and interior rips from sun exposure. It's absolutely frightening how affordable performance is getting these days. Thankfully I've only almost crashed once and I'm not dead yet!
