I am looking at getting onto Rally. I have visited a lot of forums, and the overwhelming advise is to buy a car and not build one. The classifieds here seem pretty slow, and other online classifieds all seem to be in Europe.

What other forums or sites I should be checking for US specific classifieds? Thanks!

I vote for the buy vs build, especially for your first car. But you're right, there isn't tons going through this site anymore. Most of the conversation and sales have moved over to facebook. There are some of us that refuse to let go of this place. And in general I view the FB conversations far inferior.

Regardless, it is what it is.

This is the main rally chat page is this one. I fell some days it's gotten a little bigger than it's britches. But for the most part it's ok. It's starting to become one of those pages that you get flamed for asking how to get into rally.
North America Rally

This is the main for sale page. There are other smaller ones depending on location. But I find most people will cross post to this one.
North American Rally (FS/FT/WTB)

Good luck with the search, ask questions as you get them. I pop over here mainly to blast out the spam and try to keep it as clean as possible, but don't hang out here all that much sadly.

I know a guy who made a good living hanging out at road racing tracks with a ton of cash nearby. When people came off (or were towed off) disgusted, he'd make an offer right on the spot. Rally is a smaller pond and a co-driver may be there to calm stuff down but I thought it'd be one method. You'll learn a lot hanging around even if you don't buy a tree with fenders attached.

Yes, social networking sites like FB have largely supplanted forums. And this trend will continue until forums offer something better than social networks... Competition :)

Got to rallys and get to know people by servicing or volunteering. This sport has a lot of people that have been around for years and have, or know of cars stored away in barns. They don't often make it to the public. I whole heatedly agree to buy not build. A car that has run in the past also has a lot of things worked out already. May need some updates, but the biggest weaknesses have already been discovered. You also likely get decent spares and great stories.

I went and started up a webpage to hopefully direct people to where to find rally cars for sale in the US. Since I recognized that same problem the OP posted. Mostly Euro stuff or SS.com here where it's dead.
