1990 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Hatchback
I just love the car. I would suggest it might be a car more suited to someone willing to do his own mechanical work. Especially as they get older, even one in good condition will likely need some attention. Incredibly fun car, can be had cheap, and the design looks surprisingly up to date, not losing much to newer cars on the road today in the looks category. Great option for an affordable sports car, that can respond very well to modification. The turbo models can be hard to come by, if you get one, take care of her!
Turbocharged, great handling, excellent looks, good budget buy. Of course the rotary engine is an interesting piece of machinery. If you need parts, they can be had fairly cheap as well.
They were notorious for coming out of the factory with low quality paint jobs, and poor wiring; this is only made worse after 17+ years. It is hard to fault an aging car for many other problems.
