    Please tell me your major isn't English :hsugh:


    If you don't have a lot of money what do you want a muscle car for? They just cost more for insurance and suck gas.


    Honda Civic or CR-V
    Toyota Corolla, RAV-4, old Tacoma

    It's Camaro... not Camero.

    I'd stay away from musclecars until you get a little experience under your belt. You can get into trouble pretty easily.

    Camaro...

    Little tip - don't buy a Grand Am ('80s or newer) and tell people you bought a musclecar.

    W8 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion variant. Those cars haul ass, have good cargo space, look classy, feel comfortable, and stick to the ground like glue. The addition of dual cold-air intakes and a secondary rear swaybar completes the package. Go on PassatWorld.com or VWVortex.com for testimonials. I'd almost trade my 1.8t for one -- almost.

    Oh -- you can get one with <50k miles for about $16k.

    Or, if you're mechanically-inclined and you need to spend less money, you could get a 1.8t like I have and fix it up yourself like I did.

    I'm in college and broke as well right now, and I would love a civic as a daily driver....30 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway would definitely pay off....they're really good cars in their stock form. The second a fart can is added you can scratch it off my list...
