Post Your Cheap Dream Car!

Postby COOLGUY200 » Sat May 24, 2014 8:09 pm

Hi! I have been saving up for a car, and that got me thinking...What is a good dream car for less than 15,000 in U.S.A. Dollars?

Shows like "Wheeler Dealers" and even "Top Gear UK" have shown you that its possible to buy an awesome car without spending an amazing amount of money paying for it.

So, what about YOU? Here is some good examples from me...

1990 Honda Civic Si. VTEC kicked in, YO!

Image


1993 Ford Mustang GT or SVT Cobra. Lots of these, but SVT models are more expensive, of course.

Image


One more car...1972 Dodge Coronet. This one is modified greatly, but you can find one cheap in stock trim. Believe me, many people one day will treat these cars the same respect of a 'Cuda or Charger, or any 1966-1970 Coronet. This one has 4 doors...Still, it's pretty much a 1972 version of a new SRT Charger.

Note the Japanese license plate. I read about this car in a magazine.

Image

Send in those cars, and thanks for looking!

My cheap dream car is still the Fiat 500. If I won't own one, I would at least drive it... I want it with this exact look.

Image

The new Lancia Ypsilon is interesting too. It's a sort of second choice. The 5 doors are more comfortable.

Image

Before the Fiat 500, it was the Peugeot 206 CC in blue color, which is now old and if wanted, it must be used, so cheaper than about 11.000 Euro.

If I was planning to stay in U.S.A, or just import them here, my choices would be...

1971 Chevrolet Chevelle

Image

$14,900 USD (According to AutoTrader Classics)

_____

1972 Ford Mustang

Image

$12,750 USD

_____

1968 Pontiac GTO

Image

$14,750 USD

I'll obviously pimp these up to the standard that I'd keep them in. I'm kinda assuming these are used cars though but meh.

I guess I'm the only one who'd buy a Suzuki Swift and be done with it? :)

I'd like to have this one:

Or the new Ford Fiesta in some decent version but I think it would cost more in the Polish money than the price you said

I just changed my mind. I've read amazing things about the Minis of 1999 and before. :)

I'd like to see one of these Minis in MM2, not like the default one which looks nothing like it. The one out of Gran Turismo 2 looks great but saddly, I don't have GT2. :(

This guy's Grand Cherokee:



Fast, still useful and daily driveable. I know it's supercharged, the engine may also be stroked from 5.9L to 6.7L (I forget if it is/isn't).
I like girls kind of like chicken wings; hot, tender and half-price on Tuesday.

I know this topic is old, but i thought i'd bring it up again. I have finally decided that this would be my budget dream car.

The 1978-1979 Dodge Magnum.

Image

My uncle recently is selling his for around $10,000 USD. his is brown with chrysler rallye wheels, vinyl top, four on the floor, sport wheel, scoops from a 71 Plymouth Duster Twister, rare "Magnum Force" spoiler, etc. I really loved looking at that car.

Either an Alfa GTV/GTV6/Spider, One going for 6k over in Vancouver:

A mazda MX5/Miata/Eunos Roadster

Or a Honda City Turbo II, always loved Kei cars, and the scooter in the trunk is an added benefit:
