I'm currently driving a 2001 Ford Mustang 5 speed, but I was thinking about restoring a car. I still have a few questions before I begin. What is a good car to restore? I need a car that would be easy to restore, that I might be able to get for cheap (Or maybe just cheaper than others). I would want a car that would have some power and maybe a v8 standard. If there are any cheap cars that have v8's that I might not have to restore, that would also be okay. Finally, where could I find information on how to restore a car? I have general knowledge about cars but I wouldn't know how to fix or replace parts. Thanks

I own a DSM (Diamond Star Motor). The DSM was a combined force between Mitsubishi and Chrysler in the late 90s. The mitsubishi eclipse and eagle talon are the same car and they are good project cars, some models come with a stock turbo with the 4g63 engine (same used in lancer evolution). There are many huge communities for DSM such as www.dsmtuners.com were you can find information on restoring. These cars can be found for cheap (under $1000 with no body damage) but if you want turbo could go up to (5k-7k in pretty good shape). Look around I'm sure there are online communities with forums for different type of cars. If you strictly want a v8 go for an old mustang since you already own a similar car.
