    I can't decide what I want to do. I rarely drive the Civic but when I do it feels good to get back in it. I think that the 4 dr is ugly as hell so I kind of want to upgrade. Any ideas of other cars i should look into? I will have a budget of about 5 grand for now on the car. I want to buy a house in the near future so I can't be married to another car.

    I fyou think it's ugly, but like the interior, find a CRX or hatch. They're all fun.

    i voted for "Sr-20det 240sx"

    i dont really think that you can do all that for 5 grand. the older gen 240sx's (like 1992) are around 2k-3k and then a red top sr20det is another 3 grand. 240sx is rear wheel drive and upgrading that sr20det is easy. my friend recently swapped a sr20det into his 92 240sx.

    my second choice would be to get a 94-95 integra ls and have some fun with that. :D

    the s15 style is made the RWD.

    get a CA18det for a 240sx. Cheaper, but not under 5000 still. And you can get s13/s14 black/red-top SR20det's that are RWD.

    this guy is starting up his shop. It's in Iowa, but he'll ship an engine anywhere in lower 48 for like $200. 240sx.org is a good nissan community too.
