Practicality, frugality, and economy aside, the most thrilling and rewarding driving experiences can only be had with a taught and nimble sports car. That’s why this week I dare you imaginative lot to throw caution to the wind and find the best sports cars on eBay, for under a $30,000 budget. Let’s get crazy.

Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Selections aren’t limited to simply ‘cars’ (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $30,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the best sports car for less than $30,000.

Start here and find a car that goes to weekly meetings of NA: Nurburgring Anonymous.

I’ll arrange the best selections afterwards and it’s possible your answer may be used on a new show we’re working on at Jalopnik.
