I own a VW up with my sister. I only got my licence recently so I'm too spooked to go on any big roads so I'm just driving around where I live for now.
I'd like to go on long trips but I'm way too afraid of motorways or even dual carriageways.

I love driving around at like 2am though. It's completely silent and everything looks nice.

is a JDM import, they're designed as passenger transport vehicles but i removed the rear seats to use a tradesman vehicle.

it has the same engine and likely drivetrain as a similar era hiace van, but drives nicer.
only bought it because it was cheap

living in new zealand most vehicles are japanese. both imported JDM and exported models. growing up all i knew was old japanese cars. the tuning scene here is big into vintage JDM and there are a lot of older jap vehicles around.

I used to have a Mazda Miata. However, it was really unreliable, so I traded it in and bought a boring sedan instead.

Thank you, my Prelude has fuel injection. The Preludes had twin carbs from 1982 to 1990 depending on the trim model. After 1985, Honda began to offer the Si trim level with fuel injection. Good luck with your Sonoma and Turismo, I always liked the styling of 80's domestic hatchbacks.

Haggling the price shouldn't be too hard. The 325E isn't a bad car, it's just somewhat slower than the other E30 trim models because that engine was designed with fuel economy in mind. As long as it was maintained by the previous owner it shouldn't give you any reliability issues. The only other advice that I have is that if you can find European bumpers online, you should install them.

You can find a variety of those kinds of cars for cheap depending on where you live and it's pretty entertaining seeing the reactions of people when you turn your headlights on.

Try finding a less popular model if you want to get a good deal. People are starting to charge collector prices for cars like the RX7, 240SX, and the MR2, but you can find cars like the SC2, Celica, and 3G Accord for less than $1500.

I don't need a car for day to day stuff, but it sometimes is a problem to not have one. Like if I want to go to the hardware store or recycling center (not in the city centre) and buy something big… it's difficult. There's also a feeling of confinement because my ability to go beyond walking distance is dictated by other people. And I can't just go for a night drive or visit the nearest 24/7 place at 2 AM.

Saabs are great. The later 900 models are built like tanks and are easy to maintain due to some of the interesting features that are built in to the engine (like a spring loaded pulley that can take the tension off the serpentine belt with out stretching it) and the post 94 models work well for highway speeds and have a lot of easy to get GM parts. I had a 96 and drove it to 327K miles before selling it for parts due to me abusing it quite a bit. Still ran great when I sold it.

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.

Just about to finish up my license. Took quite a bit longer than I thought. I think I should be finished around January or February.

As it looks now, I'm still sure my first car will be a 9-3 or 9-5. They tend to be in such good shape for their age and price, hard to pass on that deal. There are some nice older Volvos too that I'm curious about. Not so hot on the A3/A4 or Golf/Passat anymore, since the cheaper ones tend to have a fair bit of rust, but I wouldn't pass on a good deal on one of those either (assuming no rust, and in good mechanical condition).

I do basic maintenance on my car myself and really like to drive but I feel bad sometimes because it's always full of garbage and I can't motivate myself to clean it except when I have to take it to the shop. There's still some junk in the back from when I last moved a few years ago.

If you can maintain your car, you can clean it.

Man, that car was not having a good day. Hope he's doing better now.

Would you recommend one of these? I think they really look fantastic but was put off by how slow they are. Not really 'the new CRX'

Definitely not the new CRX SiR, more of a CRX Hf.

Honestly best I can say is see if you can try one yourself, it's not very powerful but when you're actually driving one it feels good, fun to rev out and has the low down electric motor push to spin tyres. It's still more of a handling car than a power car, coming from a Miata I have no regrets, but coming from a more powerful car you may not like it.

It definitely makes tradeoff between power and econonomy, and for me using it as as daily it sits in a nice medium, but if you're just in it for performance there's probably better cars.
Even if you supercharged it (180-200hp safe) you probably coulda just bought a similar age Type-R for the same power with a similar or better handling chassis, even if you lose that short wheel base fun and good looks of the CR-Z.

When I realize how much having my car cost me, I traded it in for a new Suzuki Swift. One day, I'll get a two-wheeler but for now, small cars are the go for my limited budget.

I never like the look of the crz in pictures. but whenever I see one i like them. But I'm still sad it doesn't look more like the crx

Hope you found a nice Saab

there are some really cheap used Scooters. If you look for old Hondas they also look quite good

If you want to save money on transport, make sure you have a bicycle as well.
