I'd go with a beater if I were you. If you buy a $600 dollar car and it runs for 6 months, you're doing great. $600 is probably 2 and a half months worth of payments for a decent car. So, if you can keep the $600 dollar car running for more than 2 and 1/2 months you're doin pretty good.

This gives me an idea for a new thread.

6grand can get you a decent vehicle, im one of these people that believe you should get a decent vehicle to start with so your not going down the road and the thing fucks up on you. Get something that isnt to old or has to many miles, hasnt been in an accident(can find this out by researching the car title) and just runs great when you test drive it. Just my opinion tho.

Any car can f*#k up on you when you're going down the road, new or used. Cars are kinda like a time bomb. Sooner or later somethings gonna go wron. And it's usually at the most inopportune time.

Buy any 80's B-body (Bonneville, caprice, parissienne, etc etc). Most come with 305s, while it is not fast, it will take a lot to kill it. Plus it's RWD
it's huge
and insurence is really REALLY cheap on them.

Edit: The hood also makes a great platform for shooting satrun missle batteries or artilery shells off of, just make sure your in the car!
