    ya currently i have a lumina, but ya by the end of the year i should have over 4-5k to spend. if i dont spend all my money and stuff.

    but ya i wanna get a import car, like a honda, acura or somethin

    the only american car id like is really a dodge stealth but ya (they have some for 2k and stuff,theres one with 80k miles and one with 170k lol

    ya i want somethin under 100k if possible, and id like it to be pretty looking and pretty fast, and have alot of modding ability/upgrades

    what would u recomend? (o ya between 1992 or so to 2000)

    :D
    Seriously though, Do you mean you'll get it imported or just a jap car, that you can't call a jap car? :/
    If import, save up. If not, seriously how much do they cost over there?

    OOo OOOooo Someone mentioned a stealth!!

    Rofl, anyways, i got my 109k mile Twin turbo stealth for 5,600 before taxes over here in the states.

    And it isnt american made, it is japanese made(the whole thing is made by mitsubishi, but labeled dodge)

    Look into a 3000gt, the exact same car.

    3000gts cost more then stealths though :)

    ok well ya im thinking either a integra gsr (160hp 130 or so ft/lbs torque)

    prelude vtec 190 hp 140 or so ft/lbs torque

    240sx 155hp and 130 or somethin ft/lbs torque

    or 300zx 222 (turbo is 300) and 198 (turo is 280 ro somethin)ft/lbs torque

    AHHHHHHH

    Out of those, 300zx, but they are costly if something goes wrong.

    Those are all highly modifi-able cars if you seek to in the future, but you might be better suited with the 300zx's 6 cyl for the little more displacement over the buzzy 4 cyl's.

    although, the 240sx can have a huge variety of engines swapped into it ;)

    Could look into a probe to? There expensive to fix and what not, but look like jap cars. I've got one. The stock motor is 155hp but you can get the jsec ones for about a grand, they come with 200hp stock and theres TON'S of stuff you could do to them.

    here's mine (94' GT)
