Most will hate on it, but I came home with a 00' Hyundai tiburon.
Paid 2500 out the door. Everything works, no rust 140k on the clock.
Auto 4 banger.
Basically looks like this


Bring on the hate, but my brother fell in love with it from the start and the price was right. It's mostly his money so I couldn't really disagree, but it's already growing on me.

That was quick. At least you've probably got some cash left over for anything it does need.

We get snow, but no lake effect. Just alot of sleet and salt. And yes, he is 16 and I'm sure the ricer in him will be there for quite a while, I can live with it as I've been though it haha.

I agree. The later Tiburons looked much better and the Genesis Coupe is just fantastic. Had to start somewhere tho, and Hyundai/Kia are not fucking around anymore lol.

Yes. They have a picture of a red Tiburon just like this on their business cards.

Traded it back in today. Was losing coolant, and not externally. Pulled the plugs, burnt white with crud on them. Told the dealer if he wanted to keep his rep. To take it back on a straight-up trade in on a 95 accord v6 with 110k miles.
