Autocrossing is fun regardless of what you drive. But many cars are a lot more fun than others.

no.. don't try left foot braking yet.. you'll spin for sure.
But yes, go out and dodge some cones.. you will have a blast regardless!

I have seen an old mid 70's Datsun 210 Wagon at several autocrosses. The guy was having a hoot.

Just do it

Anything at an autocross is a hoot. Just show up with any well maintained car and you'll have fun. It really is about the driver, not the car.

I think every driving enthusiast should at least try it. My wife even had a great time, though she probably won't autocross ever again. Especially younger drivers to learn capabilities and respect for the car, and find an outlet for agressive driving (speaking from experience here, he, he, he).

Stock suspension and stock car, good for stock running. You would be in H-Stock.

You will do well there once you get use to dodging the cones.
