Modern classics... What to buy with 3k... Discuss

Recommended Posts

Every so often I like to buy a car just to see what it's like which I'm sure a lot of people do who are into cars.

So this time I have set the budget low, at just 3k and I want to buy something fun, respectable and interesting ... A modern classic ( or even just a classic)

So, with adverts attached if that's where your finding them what would you buy??

I have been thinking 205gti as I haven't had one before but I have also been looking at loads of other stuff...

GO!!!!

Tons of stuff out there classed as modern classics (80's & 90's). I'd just buy something you like and can have fun with and the 205GTi sounds like a good choice. ;)

  I've never actually been in a 205GTI but my mates brother had a 1.9 309 GTI years ago, we went up to west Wales in one weekend and on those roads I think I would have to have worked the M5 to keep up with it, it was a fast car on the twisties! Oh, and it had red carpet! :)

Yea the red carpets scream 90's boy racer...

Honda crx, didn't think of that I'll look.

I wouldn't mind something boosted, really slow spool loads noise and whooshes but not so much power

 As far as I know turbo cars from the 80's and 90's tend to fetch good money these days, although you may get an RS Turbo Fiesta or Escort needing a bit of a tidy up. Or a Saab 900 turbo!!

I have tried a Volvo before and the seats don't get on with me, so comfy and my dodgy back sinks into them and gives in.

Loads of cars I hadn't thought of here, Celica is another interesting one.
