    SO come to find out i have $7000 stashed away from when i was a kid! HA just my dumb luck to find that out!

    so i have 2 options....

    Personally, I think you should hang the hood and trunklid up in your bedroom or garage....that would be kickass.

    It might be good to start with a clean slate and maybe even something with a few mods (suspension, exhaust etc...). Now that you know what to look for, maybe get a 94-95 1.8 so you start off with the bigger engine, bigger brakes, better chassis bracing, torsen LSD and still be OBDI. Just my opinion.

                    Hey man,
                    I don't want to sound like a condesending dick, but if you've got a hold of $7 large, you need to get into a cheap car and save the substantial residual for either college or a house downpayment. Work on things that will help your net worth. A project car will only and always be a money pit.

                    You might not agree with me now, but I really wish someone had slapped the fool out of me when I was younger and wasted my money.

                      Ben speaks some sense. Try and keep a little bit to the side. Look how handy it's been for you now, who knows when something else urgent requires a little extra cash. Good luck though Nick!

                        id just buy another 1.6, get suspension, exhaust, roll bar, and whatever other basic mods, and keep the rest for something more important.

                          I'll fourth that. Either make an investment in yourself or hold onto some of it for when something else happens and you need it... something else ALWAYS happens even if it's a year or two down the road.

                          I'd go for a nice clean NA maybe with a few mods and just enjoy it and rest easy being financially secure for a while.

                            I'm gonna fifth that option, it's a great idea. Do what Jesse said and get a few power and safety mods then save what have left over.

                              They are right. Buy a car for 3k or so, put another grand or so in it to make it the way you want it and save the rest. At the very least you will need some extra for a rainy day much like the one you were facing now until you found this cash.
