There's nothing better than spending someone else's money. In that spirit, you have a chance to spend Associate Editor Matt Hardigree's money, since he's looking to buy something on the fun end of the equation to carry him through a couple years of driving before he has to become an adult. He's getting married soon so he's not planning to spend much money. By virtue of working here he doesn't have to drive his own car that often. Since it's Monday and you've given up on working, what should Matt buy off of Craigslist? The details and requirements of this task below the jump. Help Matt Buy A Car

  • He wants to use Houston Craigslist
  • He lives in Houston, so working A/C is a must!
  • Don't break the bank; he'd like to spend less than $10K
  • Needs to be fun
  • Matt doesn't have a garage so needed repairs and expected maintenance must be minimal
  • Though it won't be driven often, Matt needs a car that won't break down every three blocks

Those are the requirements. The cheaper the better. An early leader is the 5-spd Turbo C70, if that gives you any indication of Matt's strange tastes. He's also rather patient, so don't be surprised if he doesn't end up taking that SVO diesel Peugeot to his High School Reunion new home.
