You can probably find a Chevy Cavalier w/ stick for around that, those things wont give him much trouble. Old Civics, Sentras, Fox Body 'Stang, K-car might have come in stick, Ford Probes, Contours, Escorts, Corollas, MX-6's, Proteges, maybe a old assed Miata for a little over 4K. Does it matter how many miles are on it? Tell him to go down Rand Road around Lake Cook rd and goto all the Mexican run places, they have some pretty sweet finds there.

Here are cars for sale with a manual for $3-4K within 30 miles of McHenry. I don't now if that's where your buddy lives, but there are a few slick rides in there: I'd rock the 1997 Maxima.

I'd rock the hell outta that red 535 BMW at the bottom of the list. My buddy had a green 540 of that year, and was trying to sell it while out at school. So I drove it to my classes while I was at my CC for advertising. Definitely a fun car!

As a honda boi, for 3-4k you could score a minty fresh Del-sol SI in time for summer, or a 1996-2000 Civic EX Coupe.

I know its a bit of a chick car, but as far as a 'fun to drive, stickshift car' for 3-4K its right up that ally IMO, get a black or red one and It'd be less girlie than a powder blue or lime green one which many of them are.

That 97 Maxima is pretty nice, (if you get stock tail lights). The VQ30 is a great motor and the 5-speed maximas are pretty quick. I would take something like that over a honduh anyday.

ehhh, luxury car costs to repair a non luxury car.... If he is only spending $3k I would imagine reliable and cheap to fix are pretty high priorities.
