$24,000?

Hey guys, idk seeing the $1,000 vacation thread kinda reminded me of a Top Gear episode I saw. On there they gave the 3 guys 1500 w/e European money is and told them to buy a used Porsche with the money given. The second step was to use w/e money they had left over and to put it into the car, performance or style w/e they chose. The final step was to race them on a track. So lets try it on here! Your allowance is $24k and you cannnot go over that. Be smart with it check ebay and w/e other used car sites there are. For aftermarket parts include a list of parts along with the cost. Include links as well. Hopefully this aint a flop thread idk i thought it'd be neat cuz it'd make us really think bout it and be pretty fun. At the end i'll make a poll and we'll judge who would win so get thinkin!!!

someone make me a sig!!!

'78 Pinto $50
302 $400
T5 $100
8.8" $125
Wheels $400
Seats $150
Misc odds'n ends $2500

I have a LOT of money left over.

I'd toss in some stickier tires, a better gear in the rear end, a turbo or two, roll cage, and see where I go.

Seriously, you can build a track ready FFR Cobra replicar for those prices.

302 Miatas ~5k
302 FB/FC ~3k
LSx FD ~9k

Just pick up any GrassRoots Magazine and see their 2006/7/8 shootout. People take some junker toss ~$2000 into it and then race them.

Put in a bigger turbo than the stock mr2 turbo has, get a performance exhaust and race pipe, high flow cat. Headers, alloy rims.
