Best Car for under $20k?

So, as my other thread suggests, I have the chance to get a car for roughly $20k. What kind of cars would get me the most power/easy mods/ and the best gas mileage... Btw, I'm very particular to svt cobras... I love them. oh, and not just stangs, like if I could get an evo or impreza cheap, that would be cool.

I would definitely go for that Cobra. But Evos and Stis are a lot of fun I the snow. What do you think about 350z? My friend just got one like 2 months ago. Man that thing is fast he got it to do 150 the other day.

Eh, the 350z is alright, just not the straight-line speed I want. And I would have to drive it all year... So the evo or sti might help..

What year are you aiming for? I don't know much about either car but it seems like every guy that goes to my school has an Sti. So they must be pretty good cars.

I'd be looking for about a 2004-2008ish range car. I could go for a perfect really fast foxbody, but I would prefer a nice interior considering this car will have to last me after college

Yeah those foxbodies have ugly interior but you could always fix it up. Do you have any other cars in mind

For a g35, white or black.
For a cobra, anything but silver. I love all of them

Re: Best Car for under $20k?

A Cobra would be awesome but I opted for a 475 WHP low mileage mustang GT (06 GT, 14k mi) for $16k.. Leaving $4k on the table yet for mods... I had the same roughly 20k budget and couldn't think of a car I wanted more.. I looked at Foxes, but in Cali.. all the ones I wanted .. there's no way they would be carb legal and/or the owner wanted 10k for a car with over 100k mi, I'm not cool with that.. Cobras, every single one was either way over priced or I couldn't figure out it's history (IE had a brand new engine installed, but was bone stock its entire life)
