    Default WTB: Entry level rally car

    Me and my friend are looking into entering rally, we need a car.

    We will pretty much consider anything, so long as it has the following:
    Roll Cage
    Log Book
    running engine

    We Prefer:
    Naturally Aspirated
    2WD (RWD or FWD, I've had experience with both)
    4 Cyl.
    Under 2 liter displacement

    we need something very cheap as well $100-$4000 is our optimistic price range.

    PM me if you have anything.
    respond to this thread to tell me my price range is ridiculous.

    This thread is more to get a feel for what we have to pay, but if we come across something feasible and in our interest, we my commit.

    Price range is kinda ridiculous. You maay find something for 2500. But really if you up that to about $5k, your chances are a lot better.

    Fast was selling his 510 for 3k. Did it sell? Also saw a old VW for 2k on here, but that sold.

    I once bought a 1/3 mile circle track car for $150 in the early '70s. I could have bought the previous year's #3 car for $1500, but that was too much. I ended up putting $4k into it in the next year and still had something that was uncompetitive. EVERYTHING about that car was wrong, and I ended up rebuilding it from the ground up. $2k is about the same as $150 in 1973.

    Listen to the folks here. Spend a bit more and buy something that has a record of finishing events, and not just a cage and logbook.

    My car has a great finishing record at events. I drove it to work today and wasn't 100% sure I was going to make it *laugh*

    I'll keep that in mind. when I started looking at the site, i saw a car or two at around 2,500. I just assumed that was a reasonable price.

    I'll bump up the price range, this is more getting a feel for what me and my friends options are.

    Go to the end of your dream !!!

    I was 23 years old and people here and around me said that I need a car between 5k-10k to go rally

    during this time I was looking at a Civic for about 2000$ a production car,...

    I should have bought this and go rally

    Now with a Kid and my wife working a lot I haven't time to go wrench!!

    Be sure you can have a service truck or a sponsor to have this service truck for you, with time you will go rally

    Don't do like me and, and say I should have,..

    You could always sell your child and buy a car. It's never too late.
