I'm looking to Buy a car soon, and want something fun.I only NEED to drive to work and school, but i'd like to cruise around and have some fun on backroads. Want something manual, and being able to do some minor mods like wheels, coils, and that kind of stuff is a plus.

    Wow, you are ALL over the board! You will never find a Mugen Civic since they only made 1000 of them. Talk about a FLOP! I would stay clear of anything made by Volkswagen!

    No Porsches, no Corrado. If you want to mod, and do it at a reasonable price, and want to have a little fun besides, you'd almost have to pick a Japanese coupe or convertible of some sort or the Mustang GT. Some of the cars you picked don't really need much in the way of mods, like the 350z or the Miata. Miatas are great but there's no trunk space, so keep that in mind.

    I've seen a few mugens for sale by me. Some real, some kits.

    Why not a 944? I've heard some great things about them

    Why not the 944? "I only NEED to drive to work and school" - the 944 is old, will need frequent work, and will be expensive to maintain. Not a good choice for a daily driver, especially for somebody apparently new to car ownership.
    Avoid all old European cars. That'll cut down your list quite a bit. And look at '96 or newer, they're easier to maintain.
