Yea but I dont think i can get one for my low $600 price range lol. Like posted earlier, I'll probably get a fwd car with a somewhat large engine in it. I'll let you know what I buy.

I found a 1999 pontiac grand am gt ram air 3.8 v6.... Wonder how that would work under the condtions. FWD.. for $1,500 if I went a bit over my limit and bargained abit...
OR a 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora, for $500 with a 4.0L V8, also FWD.
There about the only two in the area that would be any good. Im thinking the Oldsmobile, because its got the V8 and for a price i can afford....
There both not meant for it, but its the best i go so far..

opinions?

EDIT: yes I know there both epic fails never deigned for the purpose, lol.

The Aurora is a 4,000 lb vehicle, I don't know how well that would fare.

I think those are too big and powerful. You need a small 2000lb car with a 4cyl for rally...

It's a longshot, but see if you can find a Neon ACR. Those were packaged specifically to be raced...adjustable suspension and everything. They were actually fairly popular in their day.

edit: Almost forgot, look for old Turbo K-based cars as well. The Turbo 2.2/2.5 is a great engine.

Here, click "show" on the green bar at the bottom
