Matt,

If you want something to wheel just get a small Jeep. I don't have a lot of money myself but after searching CL for a while i found a decent Jeep for $300.

there's Le Mans, then Lemons, google it.. get a car for no more than $500 including repairs and mods with no cap on safety stuff.. Then race it for 24 hours. If people call BS on your car and/or it obviously costs too much they take you out of the race and crush it

matt- the circle track in Killeen has a a race called texas twisters. The only rules are basically front wheel drive, roll bar, firesuit, and no glass. if you win, someone can buy the car for $500 (its never happened)

you can search twister on cl and they come up once in a while for $500.

that sounds like a lot of fun!

I forgot from the pics it looks like you do some pretty hard wheeling.

I could see it happening.
