And the answer to the 5k queation is............ The ZX3. Or even get an SVT Focus and work up from that point.

A 5k Budget is a good enough budget for a fast car. Just look around in the parts selling area.

What does rice it out mean?
I was thinking wheels,tint,lowering springs and maybe stereo. Then chip away at the little stuff.

Paul, I've been looking for my son lately as well and haven't seen much out there. But if you look hard enough there are deals every now and then.

Rice it out means to make it look like it was in the first Fast and Forious Movie.
