hey all Im goin to be a college student next year and i want to know what car in you guys opinion i should buy.....i saw that the 1992 to 1995 preludes are 2,000 to 4,000 and I asked some questions of those year preludes in my thread http://www.superhonda.com/forum/showthread.php?t=209473 in which i became annoying to people that replied....by postin the same question over n over when i didnt get a answer or some1 answer one but not another.. But now insurance and car wise what car do u guys think i should buy or should i stay with the determined attitude to get one of these cars......Is their any car in the price range i would buy this car for that would both have cheaper insurance and a nice reliable car...because i saw these cars would obviously have more than 100 k by the time itll get in my hands.....most of them would.... or should i get so and so car that would fit my condition and remember later i intend to add add-ons to this vehicle.

well as i said in the other thread i did have a accident that caused the car to be totaled :mad ......agian some1 behind me couldnt stop to stop at a four way intersection he hit me in the back part of my bumper....he said it was cause black ice.....he hit me just as i was about or startin to accelerate......causein me to pop a curb n hit a tree from my inability to stop the car becasue of black ice as well.....it was like a 2 way street n stuff with not a large or wide raod it was cramped/small....so now the insurance wrote me off the blue book value which i though was pretty nice for a 1999 honda accord lx with around 50 k on it because they culdnt check the milage since the engine didnt start.....i know it was around 50 k max 54k.............i got 10,011$ which is good.....but im not goin to use that money for a car for college n other stuff...............drivin record beside that nothin..........no ticket or anything for now ;) lol :lol2

1,000-5,000 or 6,000 somewhere their..n i know its not much to go on becuause of the money im willin to spend to just buy the car .n i hope that obviuosly the insurance would make this car cheaper cuz the age....what want obviously insurance for a guy my age the more hp the car has when u get it insured the more the premium.... i want something with low or ok torque and hp at first and then later to b easy to increase it dramatically without swappin the engine.....i fell in love with the 4 gen prelude look....but im not sure cuz like the milage would be high which would prob result in a higher cost to fix stuff.....so in summary a car that has ok level of hp to start out with, easy to increase the amount dramatically, relability, performance obviously, n nooooooooooooooooo probs.....n a good price 4 the car thing

I was talking more about a newer Maxima. Like a 96...If you look around you could find one for around your budget.
