For rally cross you really either want rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. There's plenty of RWD cars you can get for cheap that handle well. Miata....hell, even a mid 90's thunderbird wouldn't be bad. The Civic wouldn't be a bad choice for auto cross though, on tarmac they actually handle pretty good, but from my experience on dirt, I didn't enjoy it. I hate to say it, but I'd be on the look out for a beat to death 2000 or so subaru outback. Would be cheaper than a WRX and not turbo. Plus, they are a dime a dozen to find since all the yuppy hipsters and middle age lesbians drive them. How about this? I'm only gonna have maybe $1700 to spend for a car


Or this is the Honda I'm looking at
1997 B2300 reg cab 2.3 Lima, 15x8.5 Mickey Thompson classic 2, 31x10.50 cooper discover at3, 7.5 open 4.10 rear, dynomax super turbo catback, alpine iva-w200 w/ nav, kicker 6x8s, alpine type R 8, alpine 250W mono amp, power bass 400.4, tool box & camper shell, compustar alarm/remote start.
1956 Ford F100 rust bucket with big plans!
