just wanted to say sorry everyone

hey for those that know me personally from meets or on here from helping out others, buying things, or askign for help..im still here

BUT in a couple months im going to school at UTI (universal tech institute) for automotive tech and specialize in FORD.. but the reason i havent been to active on here is becuase i have been saving for a new car (5/6 spd) so my car will stay how it is now until i buy a new car then i will give it to my mom and return to stock :(

i have been researching many cars and no other forum is quite like this one (the only one that is similar is the rx8 club) im looking to go RWD but i dont know what ill be getting it.

so if any of you have suggestions for a car please let me know.. i have been looking into a rx8 now .....maybe a miata but thats kinda small


for those that dont know me or my car it when from this to that in about year while being a working high school student

what kinda price range are you looking at for your new car?

are you sure you want to go to UTI? Chances are your local community college offers the EXACT same program for about 1/10 the price

I say look into a Mustang since you're going to specialize in FORD. makes sense. plus Mustangs are RWD, not small, and quick.(and also fun to make faster)
I know there's a few Mustang forums and a lot of people on here like mustangs a lot so you can easily stick around here!

Depends on how much you wanna spend and what your looking for the most. I assume being a college student you will need something that doesn't burn a huge hole in your pockets. Two great recommendations I can make is the Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the 2.0l turbo track or R pack. Or the 2011 Mustang V6. If you go with a mustang stay away from the 4.0L at all costs. Get into a 3.7l V6, the new one as the entire package is a worlds better car.

Both cars can be had for under 25 grand. The Genesis Coupe is a blast to drive and I can only image how it is modded and the turbo is putting out more then 300hp. The Track pack is the most expensive, but Hyundai so graciously added the optional R pack which is essential all the great performance options from the track pack without all the extra technology and comfrot features.

Being that your in NJ remeber winter tires in the snowy months for your rwd car.
