Photoppositelock!

I'm looking to stop taking potato pictures guys. I have been itching to get a 'real' camera for quite a while and I think I'm ready to do it, but I'm also poor due to racecars and have no clue what I'm doing... So I ask you, oppo-ites of which I know a decent number take awesome pictures, does anyone have any recommendations for a <$100 DSLR that I could learn on? I don't really care about numbers or features, just to be able to learn to use different lenses and settings and get the most out of it. I figure this is like cars, it's better to learn to drive a slow car fast, than jump straight into the fast car. Anyways, if you have a camera you're looking to part with or a good suggestion on what to get, please let me know! Have a few potato pics in the mean time.
