Yeah. But anyway, if you can afford the insurance and all the potential things that can go wrong with owning a 28 year old car, I don't see why not.
That is also if you don't mind owning the slower pre-90s ones.
I would do something else with that amount of money.
Probably something like this. Way more performance.
if you're going to spend 7500 dollars anon get yourself one of these.
if you want to drive around a slow, old sports car at least drive one with a good brand and a nice interior/build quality.
also the kids @ school will be super jealous of you so thats fun.
Stock 80's American cars are fucking slow. Don't expect anything amazing. This is coming from someone who is fixing a 5.7 1987 firebird. But they're extremely easy to work on and parts are usually easy to come by. I wouldn't spend 7.5k on that especially as a first car.
If it's your first car you may want to avoid something that may turn into a project car.
If you have a backup means of transport then go for it, but if you need something reliable I'd be more leery.
It's hard as fuck to find a non molested GM twin and not rusted to hell. I gave up looking for a fox body a long time ago. It gets about 14-18mpg or less depending if I baby it or go full potato. No coolant issue as far I've seen after 6 months of driving it. I got it @ 68k miles and put on 4k just dicking around and driving it to the gym on Sundays. It's a lot of fun especially if you like the 80's cars
i betyou think this is an '944' too
While the turbo 944 is my favorite Porsche
If you can only spend 7,500 dollarydoos on a car, because that's how high your budget goes. Then for the love of God don't buy a 944, you buy a 944 if it's like the dream car for you and you've got deep enough pockets to deal with possible maintenance issues.
But god damn that car in your pic is gorgeous
Meh. I drive a 90's 300zx. I rarely grab people's attention... unless I take the t-tops off. For whatever reason, taken off the t-tops automatically makes it 100 times cooler to other people. I have no idea why.
Z32 seems like a solid recommendation. $7500 can get you a nice twin turbo, or one of the nicest, cleanest non-turbos in the country.
I owned a L98 6spd and Z32 N/A. Personally I liked the C4 better. It handled better and I could run quicker times on the autocross. The L98 doesn't make much stock, but its a small block Chevy. Its not like there isn't a huge cheap aftermarket for those engines.
