Sounds like a fun project. When I was looking for my $1200 beater, I found a lot of vehicles, but the ones I was most keen on was the Saturn S-series cars (specifically SL1 and SC1). They have the highest highway EPA rating of most cars of their era unless you get a HX or TDI or something fancy. Some cars beat them in the city (provided they were lighter), but not by much.
