What's happening Oppo. Just got back from a long weekend and I'm feeling good. Feeling so good I've been on the classifieds like white on rice.

Here's the situation; I've got a little bit of money burning a hole in my pocket, and since my parents suggested buying and fixing up a project car I've been strongly considering going for it. I'd like something a little older, cheap to buy, Japanese or German and relatively simple to work on. I haven't got much mechanical experience, but I figured this would be a good opportunity to get hands on and sort of teach myself as I go.

I put it to you, esteemed Opponauts, what would make a decent automotive project for a n00b such as myself? I was thinking NA MX5/Miata/Eunos Roadster for simplicity and a wide array of cheap spare parts.

Found this sorry looking chap below whilst scouring the classifieds, though I'm not sure if it's a nice price or the crackiest of pipes. No pictures of interior and no real mention of rust makes me suspicious...

Help a brother out! Have a 300zx straight out of Wangan Midnight, from me to you.
