Mitsubishi Lancer. They're going for cheap now as the market is flooded with them! (Note: Not the Evo)

NEW SPEC:

OLD SPEC:
https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-cars-bakkie ... 0200301109

These cars only appeal to me in EVO guise. The regular ones are too boring like an Almera


I know bud. But.. it's a good platform for some nice work. And, they're overlooked and dirt cheap. I mean, R60 000 for the latest Lancer shape is a very good price for a lot of car.

I might I drive a 140 RunX but damn, its difficult sleeping at night knowing people are out there driving these non Evo Lancers.

Some good suggestions here. I especially like the prospect of an MX5 or MR2 as a project / weekend car. There's of course always VTEC or SR options if you willing to find one and be typical.

The lancer's are good value but wouldn't call the >2007 shape a good base for a project car due to weight and limited options locally.

Personally, I would look at an IS200 or Forester XT (2.5 Turbo) in the 60k range.

I have yes. wife not too keen on it but i really want to get a bike.
What is the going price for the 180vxi? ja ja i know its an old mans car but i can get one with really low milage... Not for 60k though but its very low milage for a 2011. 28000km on the clock.

bro! Old man's cars are brilliant. They're feature packed and un-abused. 28000km is nothing.
