I'll start this page with my current daily driver, it's a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant and its tired 2.4 liter 16 valve engine has done 180k miles. I found this car for only $300 and it was barely running. A small adjustment to the timing and she roared back into service. As far as cheap cars go this one is rather good. The a/c, the radio and all of the power windows still function (a rarity in a vehicle that has seen this amount of service). Also the ride quality is decent for such a cheap car.
