I guess you would like this one (or not )

workaround ideas to discuss among friends: Brazilian Chevrolet S-10 with a local aftermarket sedan-like "double-cab" conversion

+1 on the 944.

I stood next to one at a Porche-VW swap meet once about prolly 10 years ago. Black. $7000.

They're less now, right?

Yep much less, 924 original used a VW LT van engine, 924 Turbo and S used Porsche engines from the 944.

928s are also cheap - very cheap, and the engine bay is large enough for anything other than the useless Porsche V8 in there - there is a reason why Ferrari 328s are spendy and Porsche 928s are cheap even when their performance is very similar.

There are no Porches for sale under 5k, three boxters under 7.
My phone won't let me paste, and ts difficult to work this site while mobile. Why rear wheel drive? Because I enjoy driving. The push of a car vs pulling isn't even fair. Controlling rear wheels from spinning is a blast, and thrilling.

Thats cool but sounds expensive. I avr ceased Mercedes C class off my list- SO many issues with them. Unless I can get two, t doesn't seem like a good move.

As far as RWD goes the 2+2 Porsche H6 transaxles cant be beat with alot of ecomodding potential, albeit a whale tail instead of a boat tail lol As far as a custom goes, I always wanted to get an old Lotus Esprit and drop in a Honda Cicic transaxle which has already been done by Prototype Racing.

Mercs are usually regarded among the most reliable vehicles.

Wow, my messages look terrible from my mobile! I wish there was an application for this site.

All the reviews with actual content were bad. A lot of expensive repairs, at mileage under what I would be buying. It would be better to buy two 3 series than the one C class. No Lexi realistically in my price range. I was thinking this bit I don't think I wrote it, I want to stay 2000 or newer- in an attempt to avoid more costly repairs.
