Okay I'm looking into to getting a DSM as my first car. I was wondering what you would recomend me getting a 1st or 2nd generation DSM. I can get the 1st gen. for basicly free sense my dad will give me around $5,000 bucks for a car. But I do like the style of the 2nd gen. although it seems like it will cost more to modify. I am looking into a mitsubishi for a few reasons one is that my family is full of them. My mom has a 00' GT my sister has a 95 esi and my dad had a 91 gs up until '95 or so. Also we have had no problems with any of them. And of course I want the fastet car in school, (the fastest right now is a 96 GSR 'tegy running 15.2 with header exghuast and it was on slick and was striped out) The thing I am worried about in a 1g is how long will the engine last and how much would it cost to rebuild? But if I get a 2g I will have to make payments and my insurence will be quite a bit higher. I'm searching for 13.??'s by this time next year. What would be my best bet? Also as far as mod what would you recomend?
