This is our chance to help out a good kid I know. He's a freshman at Rowan. He's had a shitty past but you would never know it from talking to the kid. The cliffnotes are that he never had a real dad, mother died at a young age, and from then on lived with is grandparents who weren't really qualified for the position. Well he moved out as soon as he could and has been on his own since. The full story has made girls break out in tears, like balling crying. Now to the point of the thread. He works two jobs just to be able to stay in college. But now he needs a car to commute to one of them. I've been helping him look for one but I figured a few people here might want to help and I know a lot of you are better at finding deals than me. So the requirements. -He as about $1000 but I'm sure if the right deal was in reach we could find the funds. -Doesn't have to be a Honda or even an import but does have to be a car that can get good mpg. -A car in good shape. Body doesn't have to be perfect but decent. I would like to find a car that could last this kid at least until he graduates but lets just see what we come up with first. -It can be manual or auto. -Right now my friend's uncle is selling a DA for $1000 but I don't think its the right car. It does have a backseat in it and I've been told it has a "Skyline exhaust". This makes me think at best a Skyline muffler is welded on this thing and it is loud as shit. I was going to buy it and put on a new exhaust (I drive my car with an N1 style on the highway no problem). Yea it's just that loud. I know the uncle and I would say either he babies it or beats on it. I don't really want to take that chance here unless I have to. But anyway I know a lot of you are like me and spend a good portion of the day on CraigsList, etc. with no intention of buying anything. So if you see a nice deal somewhere, or know someone, or have something you could sell then just post it up and we can go from there. Thanks in advance to anyone that comes up with anything.
