What do you get? Must be able to drive to and from events, that's the only stipulation. Class is HS or FSP.
GO GO GO!

No miatas... I know, I know.

That's what I was thinking, or a porsche 914. I like the sentra se-r, too. What else you got?

if you're on a tight budget, get a mazda for reliabilty. I know some of you have very reliable porsches and bmws out there, but IF they do start to breakdown, parts are a lot more expensive. Miata's, from what I hear are more reliable than the Rx-7s because of its engine. Yet if you tell me you won't like the way you look in the miata, or that the car looks like a "chick" car, autocrossing isn't about image, its about legally getting from point A to point B as fast as possible.

It's also about the wife saying "no miatas!"

an old Mini... with Vtec!

Did you read that article in GRMS? That thing was a beast! A mini would be great but I can't find any here in Texas.

Porsche 944. I just found a 944 Turbo in LA for $5500. A 944 can be had for $3000-5000 depending on the condition. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
