Cheap Thrills – 7 Fun Cars Starting at $3K

Not all car fun has to be expensive. We’ve selected 7 cars you can pick up on the cheap and either drive as-is or upgrade, without spending a lot of dough.

Of the cars we’ve selected for this “Cheap Thrills” list, we went for the price mid-point and maybe a little below. You can spend a great deal more on any of these cars onan example in pristine condition, low miles, and so much documentation that the business card from the salesperson, with home number handwritten on the back, is in the pile of papers. But we were looking only for solid drivers that have an upside potential.
