    There was a b16 eg hatch around me that was going for 2 grand. Just keep an eye out. Hell, or just get a d series eg save up and do your own swap.

    craigslist...use it

    anything can be modified....but....





    best buy in your price range?
    91-94 Sentra SE-R
    Twin cam 2 litre (SR20DE), 140hp, OEM LSD, OEM rear disc, big sway bars, comfy seats, lots of aftermarket support (have 4x100 bolt patterns so all the Rotas you want are available)

    Only major thing to look out for is to make sure it doesn't pop out of 5th gear, it was a problem with those cars and even if you got one and it developed it the trans can be swapped out of a 200sx/G20 (they didn't have the issue)

    stock for stock, they're faster than EG Si's, and on par w/EK Si's and EP3's




    plus it wont get stolen at the mall

    You can't drift a civic, or anything else front-wheel drive.

    i know that. civic for me is only for dragstrips and all that IMO. but nissan for me like the 240, s13, s14, and the 350 are drift cars

    dude i got my 1997 200sx se-r for under 3k. if you want to get something a lil bit newer than the 91-94's then you should at least check them out.

    wow, she must really suck at working the clutch. as long as you use the clutch right, you shouldn't have to worry about all that. where do you live anyways where winter is bad?
