$1k budget, a little wiggle room if the car is nice enough. It's gotta run. I know it isn't much to work with, but my friend just needs a short term beater. RWD and Manual would be nice but beggars can't be choosers. It should have a little fun in it at least. I'm in the DC/Virginia area so DC craigslist should be where your looking. Thanks! I'm looking forward to see what you all find.
