    Its not REALLY about the car you get playa..... its more about what you plan to do to it once you have it! Engine upgrades or modifications. Personally I like 2nd Gen Mitsubishi Eclipse, there is a lot of room to upgrade with those.

    damn I don't really know much about upgrades, The only upgrade I'll probaly do is put in some rims and get a stereo system. Then I MIGHT put in a cool intake just cause u said it'll my the car faster.

    But I guess what I trying to ask is what would you do if you had 6gs to spend on a car?

    ehh, man options you can go with. Nothing REALLY fast for that cheap, without any engine mods or swapping done.

    Your best bet would be to get a late 80's-early 90's import. (Mr2, Supra, 240sx, RX7 etc etc)

    Funny that you would say that.....I am ready to get rid of my 95 Eclipse GS(NT) and get a damn Mustang GT for christ's sake, and i was a die hard import fan, but supras, skylines and rx7s are more than just a lil outta my range bein a full time college student, so i figure i'll finance a 2000 GT that comes off with like 120 more horses than my piece of shit car which will probably cost me alot more in the long run, if it were to run that long!!! but in response to the one seeking advice, if you were to get an eclipse, spring for the GST or GSX(both of which come with a turbo that gives like 210hp to the wheels as opposed to the GS/RS which puts out a weak 140, and a sportier suspension for more aggressive driving),i wish i knew the eclipse was running off of a damn dodge neon engine(pre-SRT4) before i purchased it, i wouldn't have needed to think about it at all..... other things to consider....1)ride height and your height - i' 5'11" and that thing was so low to the ground i was practically gettin my eagle on tryin to get in the bitch......2) because i' sure you'll be wanting to make quick manuevers in it....you might want to consider a car that doesn't have too much rear view obstruction, the car has horrible blind spots that make lane changing a longer and more thought-out process if you know what i mean....and in a world where timing is EVERYTHING....things like that count no matter what, if you don't agree....i hope the laws of physics favor you when that 18 wheeler comes barreling down the lane your about to get in and if you didn't know....I AM SPEAKIN FROM EXPERIENCE!!!!!

    With the right modifications, you can make any of those cars a monster. It's all about the money. If you manage to find a Supra, i'd get that because they are factory built for speed, and then you can get you mods and get the computer reprogrammed. I wish I would have waited a while before I bought my car(95 civic ex). I really want an rx7 or 240sx for drifting. GO TO THE LOCAL CAR AUCTIONS!!! YOU GET AWESOME DEALS THERE!!! AND GET A MANUAL TRANSMISSION, I'D RATHER DIE THAN DRIVE AN AUTOMATIC!!

    Car performance is my life man, and I have seen tons of different sports car perform.So, personally I suggest getting an LS1 if you want some true american muscle power.An LS1 is the engine found in 98+ Camaros and Trans Ams(same engine found in certain corvettes).You could probably find a decent LS1 for about 6-8k.Stock they run the 1/4th in about 13.5 or lower, so they are hella fast and reliable.
    The best bang for the buck import out there would be a DSM.Which includes any Eagle Talon, Mitsu. Eclipse, or Plymouth Laser.You can get a 1g(years 90-94) for as low as 1,000 and in good shape.Just get the AWD turbo version, don't mess with any of the other ones.Stock AWD turbo runs the 1/4 in about 14.5 which is decent.The car has way more upside than any Honda or Mustang(except the Cobras) and will beat the majority of those models stock for stock.With a few of the correct mods you will embarrass any civic or mustang you see.
    just do your research before you mod anything.
