Just my 2¢ but I think it's a lot more rewarding in the end, if you buy something you like, and then build it up yourself... rather than buying one already modded..

Wrong! do not buy a car in poor shape or which needs alot of work. This will not lead to good feelings about it only resentment when you find out you dont have all the time it will take to finish it. Pay the extra grand or so to get one in good shape and with mods already done if thats what you want. The average person does not have the resources necessary to carry out extensive repairs or modification. It always takes more time than expected and you will spend more than the car is worth in the process.

Big difference between an "fixer-upper" and a "good starting point".
Please don't confuse the 2.
I agree. Nothing wrong with getting something partially restored/modded and going from there. Main issue is what is your ability and resources to do the changes yourself. If you never touched a wrench, then don't get a fixer upper. If you don't have a garage, take that into account, because there is a learning curve to getting these things right. Other option is to be very patient, meditate daily and have a daily driver to fall back on. :wink:

First off, nobody suggested that he buy a car in poor shape. Second, without knowing his level of ability or dedication, we can't really say that buying a fixer-upper would be a wrong suggestion. However, if he is a novice, I agree that it would be a better suggestion to get a vehicle in better shape and start off with small projects....rather than getting in over your head with a car that requires a more in depth restoration.
