Racing forums like special stage
It is important they have a valid log book. This is where the sanctioning body for the series the car has been in, has a tech inspector sign off that the car and the safety features (cage, fire suppression, seats, etc) meet spec. You don't want to buy a finished uncertified car and find out you have to do major rework to make it compliant.
But yeah, basically, all the work/money into making a car into a legit race car does very little to add to the value of the car. When you're starting, you can let someone else take the hit for you. Hopefully the car will be sorted by this time too. This way you can spend some money for spare parts. You will crash and you will break stuff.

|pholtonracing||Ok so I want to buy a used race car because it is already tested/proven to work under those conditions, right? Any suggestions as to what I should look at or where to look?|

For Rich: superlites article
For the OP: Sounds like you already have a lot of good experience in racing gokarts and rhinos, I would keep going with that for sure. Work hard and make a name for yourself and develop a good reputation. Racing is expensive. You'll need sponsors, and to get sponsors you need to show you're willing to work hard for them and be the image for their product.
If you want to get into global rally cross, make it a priority to go to events this season. Meet people, make friends and volunteer to be crew. You can learn what it takes behind the scenes at these events. I volunteered with a crew at an event at Charlotte this year, and it was a unique eye opening experience.
Lastly, you'll here this a lot in the future, but you almost always want to buy a used race car for your first rally car. Make sure it has a nasa/rally america log book.
