I Think I Am Done with My Balt

Well once i really get thinking about it i think i am going to buy an older car to completely rebuild. I am happy with my balt where it is now. I will add cheaper mods to it but the header/dp intake manifold tb and ss bumpers with lip kit with new 2 tone paint are all out of the picture until i save for a few months and make my final decision.

I could end up doing everything to the balt at once when i save or i could be buying a new car to build .

looking at late 70s camaros or any other car really

any thoughts here?

88 Fiero- For 15k, you will have a car that will rape the crap out of anything on the street and look good doing it... 3.4 Turbo with 5 speed makes over 400whp with low boost, and will outhandle most top tier sports cars with just coilovers, poly bushings, swaybars, and tires.
1st/2nd or 3th Gen F body
90-04 Mustang GT/Cobra
82 Vette
80s Datsun Z
90-96 300ZX
90s 240SX

a first gen fbody that was in a fire and barely has any body left will run you about $5000.
a second gen fbody with a decent body can be had for $6000.
third gens and up are all going to be cheap, until you get into the SS and WS6 platforms.

a fox body mustang 87-93 will be your best bet as the parts are cheap, plentiful, and proven.

However, if you are lucky, you can get the holy grail of all sports cars.... a 93-02 Supra Twin Turbo with the 2JZ-GTE engine.
