Okay one more thing I paid next to nothing for this car(1,200), it has had only one owner (who was a lady) it was never in a wreck, it was kept in awsome shape, oil was changed every 3,000 miles, this thing is almost mint. So, if I did put 5,000 into this car it would be a very awsome machine. So instead of paying 10,000 for some Honda or something I get this car. Ending my point, I do not want a "race car", I watnt a nice sounding, reliable car, that does have some power under the hood but not an insane amount.
Three things....Sharpshooter, no one on this fucking site is qualified to give this guy advice. Why he posted about modding his car on a nerf site is beyond me. Even if there is one or two people on here who know about them, he'd get better advice if he just did his god damn research like every other person.
Second, IS I do agree with you, it's stupid to drop money into a car. Serioulsy, if you spend 18,000 on a honda, then drop 10,000 to make it a sports car, you're a fucking retard. A Nissan 350z goes for that much and is a wicked ride. Stop buying cheap cars and upgrading them. Buy a real fucking car. Besides, you can get a 5 year old BMW for 18 grand and in five years it will STILL be worth more then the Honda and have broken down less. Now I'm not dogging Honda's because generally, they're great economy cars, but the level of numbnuttedness that surrounds the car buying industry astounds me.
Lastly, just for the record, I know 9 different people who are currently driving Toyota's with 350,000 miles on them and they're still kicking. If you keep those bastards maintenced perfectly, they last a god awful long time.
Edit: After a minute of thought I will ammend one thing. If you actually know alot about cars and spend time in your garage tuning one yourself, I can respect that. That's a skill and even a hobby. However, if you drive around in a half finished car all the time and then wreck it before you finish (like the stupid fucks up the street from my Mom's place. Fuckers still live at home and all they do is work on their shitty cars.) well then, you're just a fucking retard who needs to really re-evaluate your life.
And Ninjz, since you are a smart ass where is this car forum your talking about.
