Aside from the normal "turbo car stuff", the 6 speeds aren't horrible from a reliability standpoint.
Good suggestion but way out of my price range
And the patty and 4runner are too large for my taste.
Don't kill me but I'm looking into getting an ek hatch or a 95-00 teggy. Sure they wont have much power or rear wheel drive but I'm a noob regardless, I've only been driving for a year legally.and I figure there's so much of them if something breaks I can replace it easily.
And I don't think I'm gonna get a Honda auto again. Mine is in great condition but it just feels bad. I'd love to get something off road capeable, and flood capable but if it floods I'll just do what panther does, keep the car home and catch a ride.
I even thought about doing a h22 swap and just keeping this one but why do a swap when I can just find a smaller better car cheaper and for less hassle.
Nassau certainly isn't your weekend warrior as a daily driver sort of place as it will put your car through the ringer but, it can be done. And then you also have to realize the island is 21x7' not much room for speed. So I think I would be better off with something simple and cheap until I can afford a z in the next few years. (when their price drops below 10k Maybe in the 5-7k range)
I'm young and I have time and if I'm patient enough and play my cards right I mint end up with a garage like Greg and bex, (just not with cars as old )
But keep the advice coming it really is appreciated. And thank you guys for all the help thus far
