Anyone consider the Toyota Miata's or the Rx-7's? They're speed demons.

Actually, the 2000 Honda Civic Si looks really good. The 2001 gets a redesign with those ugly looking triangle taillights type deal. UGLY. The 2000 Si are common in blue color. There are white and red ones I think, but blue seem to be the prime color Honda uses. The Corollas are only good on the 03 model and up. Don't know if you can afford those. The TRD performance parts make the new Corollas fast. I've got all there is to TRD on my car. Still debating on the headlights, hehe.

Yeah, I don't know crap about 6th gen CIvics or whatever but the 2000 Civic Si gets my vote. Get the 2 door Si Coupe, not the hatchback.





Modify this stock vehicle like crazy and you will have one hell of a show car. Performance too. Put a bolt on turbo, intake, full exhaust from header on back, water injection, ECU remapping, fuel management system, suspension stabilizers, maybe a 1 inch drop, HID projectors, wheels, carbon fiber hood, etc. It will look good with the performance to match.

Anyways, im going to have to wait. Because I cant afford it at all. Last time I looked it was about 4k. And the parents pay of the car, as long as I can come up with half. And with this kinda money, there is no way I could get anything...

The pictures above are the 2000 Civic Si. It looks really nice and clean. Imagine how good it will look once it's fixed up. It will look almost as good as mine, lol.

Oh man those things go for a high resell value. Honda and Toyota have excellent resale value and doesn't depreciate as much as other car manufacturers. That Civic Si can go as high $13,000 still!!!! If you look around in your area, you may find one that's cheaper--but probably with higher miles on it.

Well, the $13,000 price tag is for an Si that is in excellent condition. I'm sure there are Si's out there that are way below that value. That 13 grand is like the high mark. I don't see any other cars that are good unless you want to go with a 95 Civic.
