Well, I have 13k cash and can probably fudge either way....i dont want to have a car payment, because in 1.5 years i'm buying a skyline from a home equity loan

anyways i am looking for something that is RELIABLE is a must, but i would like it to look good

I have owned 10 supras, 3 mr2's, celica all-tracs, dsm's, infiniti q45....anyways have had 42 cars...I'm 21 and graduating college tripple major, double minor and would like something to hold me over until the new skylines come out

I would like a good amount of umph....dosnt have to be 400hp but above 200 would be nice, i want a car that will handel high speed runs 140+


i have no clue where to look, i have been soley focused on school these last 4 years i'm almost retarted to what i can buy.....

any help would be appreciated

LS1 F-body.
Pretty much spells it out. There's plenty to choose from and prices are more reasonable than many sports cars out there considering the capabilities. It's not a Toyota 4-cyl. sedan in reliability but the combination of price and newness one can get for $13k means a lot of people are satisfied enough with LS1 f-body dependability (excluding seriously modded f-bodies).

You're only 21 and have already owned 42 cars :nervous: ?!! Also, if you don't mind me asking, how did you manage to get a triple major in college in such a short time and age as well? With that kind of background, you should be able to find a car for 13k on your own from personal experience.

My school offers many diffrent majors, and you are supposed to choose one

I took 19-26 credits a term 3 terms a year for 4 years

I have 3 diffrent business majors, International Business, Management, and Marketing

I have 2 minors, English and Mandarin

I have never had any luxary cars, besides the q45 and a 318is, i am really looking for a newer jag, or mercedes or audi

I'd say something like a CL or TL as well. The tranny thing should have been fixed by now on any of them that would have had that issue. My girl has a CL type S and it's been great.

i would say the type of tt-z you'd pick up for 13k, yeah it would be good as far as reliability. the tt-z you pick up for 8k, not so good. go for the finest latest model and lowest mileage example you can find or you will be sorry. it gets really hot under that cramped hood and the hoses tend to get so brittle from the heat and are cracking left and right on older zs.

Wow, congrates on your hard work in school, that is a lot of credit hours a year to dedicate yourself to. :) Take a break when you graduate, lol.

thank you, i wish my parents would say that...they think i'm a lazy college student...but then again they never went to college

I'm actually already treating myself to a break....I am finishing up my senior year right now in the virgin islands :)

flyback to the states may 8th

about the z's....how strong are they if i purchase a modded one? like buying a supra even if someone has flogged it, it will still be a great car
