Whats your opinions/ideas!

Well i need a second car, my car is coming off the road soon for some mods
So i need some ideas on a second car.

Now it has to be CHEAP lol (1k-2k)
Can i have some opinions/ideas on what car i should get
This will only have 3rd party so it doesnt have to be nice.
also has to be manual, fuel costs arent a problem



Getting closer to being finished!

Get a Malvern Star......no fuel = more mod $$$

When you crank it up, the LS1 feels like a rottweiler with rabies and distemper on a short thin leash that's constantly being poked with a sharp stick.

I'd look at a manual KF Laser GL - you should get a workable example for that money.

Laser, Mazda 323

or dare I say it, a very good condition first gen magna can be pricked up for cheap. Plently of power, decent room and most of the dodgy ones should be off the road by know, dodgy fuel economy though.
