Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hey guys, I'm planning on purchasing a
Fiat 124 for around the $3,000 range, I
would only have 1-2 K to maintain it and
I'm only 17. I do not have much experience
but would it be possible to maintain as a
car to and from school? I won't have much
money, but what are your thoughts? (Also
considering Datsun 240z or Triumph
Spitfire) Am I insain or is this possible?

Those are all cool cars, but they are old cars also. Your budget might be enough to repair and maintain these vehicles if you get lucky and get a good one. If you get unlucky and get one that is falling apart then your budget won't cover the repairs. Your chances of getting a good car at the $3,000 price point is poor at best, just my opinion. Also be sure to check insurance costs before taking the plunge. Best of luck!


If you're going to buy a Fiat, remember this: Fix It Again Tony. Eliminate that one right away.
