    nah.. I think I'm going to look for a 5.5 generation Accord V6. I drove that throughout college and it was a dependable car that I grew attached to.

    I just offered a guy $3500 cash for his 1996 Accord EX V6 with 110k miles. He was asking $4800 :noes:

    the e30 I drove last week felt a lot funner than this old e21. I'd probably buy a nice e30 in decent condition, but I'll probably find a rainbow-colored unicorn before finding one for a good price.

    there's another guy selling an identical accord ex v6 with 121k miles for $4750. The AC is broken, and the price includes a sound system. I'm going to ask him to replace the system with a stock one, and I hope he'll accept my $3500 offer :noes:

    it had a little rust around the passenger-side window, and a little surface rust in the trunk. The stereo is gone, I'm not sure if the AC works, and it only has 4 gears, but it seemed like it was really well maintained

    I didn't. The lack of power steering really threw me off when I was backing it out of the driveway. there was a small exhaust leak too, so it sounded louder than shit

    an EMP could've exploded in the car and it still would've ran. it's definitely a neat little car, I just want something a little more modern

    Here is what I think you should consider:

    any civic with vtec
    CRX
    Escort GT (91-96)
    Protege LX (90-94)
    Sentra SE-R
    240sx
    miata
    Toyota supra (mk2/3)
    toyota mr2

    All of those are good cars, more or less, and generally quite reliable.

    I forget that deck that I had. It was a tape player, though. Shit, that was back in ....'92/'93is or so; my sophomore/junior years in High School.
