You can get R32 GTS-T's for less than 10K sometimes, but it's not a wise choice for a first car. You want something you can get parts for, an imported car that was never sold here is not a good example of that.

Not to mention a car that you can handle. I'd rather not have to hear about a Computer Forums member on Canadian headlines for crashing his Skyline because he thought he was a drift king and because other forum members encouraged him to do it.

If you're drifting with a Skyline GT-R, you're doing it wrong.

Hence my point about it being too much to handle for a first time driver without the proper knowledge of the car.

Happened to some kid and his 300ZX a couple years ago at my high school. Tried to drift in our rather small school parking lot. Went head-on into something and the frame was screwed beyond repair.

Getting good mileage isn't hard to obtain, especially if you have a manual transmission.

Manuals do help a lot. My '97 neon was rated at 40MPG highway when it was new(no idea what it gets now), while the AT version was rated at 30. HUGE difference.

I'd stick with the lancer though.
