I'm almost 18 and I saved up about ~8k to buy a car. Dad might help out but I'm looking for something around that price range.
I'm just looking for a sedan/hatch, manual and reasonable mileage.
I was thinking a Honda Prelude or a WRX if I can find one for that cheap
While i was at the Pet Store getting fish for my daughter,I saw the funniest truck. It was a S-10 blazer no back window and both front doors had rope tied around the window frames. When the people got in they tied the ropes to the seats to keep the doors closed. I don't know what was wrong with the...

I started to use paint to compile side views of different cars and I was really shocked to find my 1992 camry is actually quite slender in the body- not necessarily sleek, but the thickness of the...
I am looking for a Mazda Rx3 coupe for sale here in the USA ( prefurrably California ) Any suggestions as where to find one? Or do you know of someone with one for sale?
I read on Motor Trend's Forums about people noticing that some more economy cars dent easier than other cars. Also, metal thickness and strength varies by brand. I never knew how strong or weak my Camry's body was, until one day, I was walking alongside my car, lost my balance, and fell onto my...
Simple question- If you could own any vehicle, not worrying about price, what would you buy?
I hope I don't get put down for my choice. Many people think it is ugly, but I LOVE the way it looks. I think it has beautiful body lines and a sleek, curvy body (It is curvy like a woman).
I am only a freshman, and I allready know, if you go into engineering, you REALLY have to be into it. It is INSANE! The only engineering class I am taking right now is Chemistry 111. Sounds like it isn't bad enough, right? Here are the class test averages: Test 1: 71%; Test 2: 63%; and test 3,...

A 1965 Chevy Impala SS is more than a car to the Younger family, it's what binds them together. To pay for his son's education, Herb Younger was forced to sell his beloved '65 Impala. Two decades later, they found a way to pay him back.

Well I have made what is probably the biggest financially poor decision of my life and couldn't be happier about it :D
I'm looking at a new car for my daily commuter but also for the occasional road trip over the mountains between Boise and Portland (and possibly other places). I know the Impreza is cheaper, has AWD, is less fun to drive, and feels slugish on turns. I also know the Mazda is capable, more expensive,...
