Bros, what are some cool classic cars for like 2000-5000 bucks?

Bros, what are some cool classic cars for like 2000-5000 bucks? Similar to something that an action movie hero would drive. I don't necessarily mean actual cars from movies, they're probably overpriced. Just something with a similar, classic action movie vibe.
Like a sleek, slim car. Something an exorcist, or a vampire hunter would ride on a budget.
I've been watching 80's and 90's movies, man. There's something about the aesthetic. I'll get something more expensive when I get a better a job.
My first car, bros, I live in a slav shithole, I can get USSR cars easily, they're everywhere, cheap as frick, and some look cool, actually. Are they good?

    One of these was in death race 3000 and you can buy it for $2500. If you count tv shows, like breaking bad you can get a tercel 4x4 or Pontiac Aztec for under $5000

          Then better find something that runs in the first place and is easy/cheap to repair secondly. Your budget is sadly too small to buy a cool car in good condition, and even then it will require more money and attention than some common shitbox.
          Also, this [...] anon is absolutely right.
          >we should be able to order stuff from Europe.
          Are you in the EU or not? What's the situation regarding importing cars?
          >Only watched some Miami stuff for now
          I think the Corvette C4 is the cheapest and easiest to run Miami-themed stuff you can get in Yurop, but some other anon wrote recently that anything below €15k is shit as he was looking for one.
          >Damn, classic Caprice cars look gorgeous, very classic
          That's your typical USA cop car of the 1990s which is modern enough to be a daily. Plenty of those in the movies. Same goes for the Crown Vics. Town Cars (same platform as the said Ford) were pretty popular in Russia and some CIS countries a decade or so ago in the "cheap full size American classic" category.

          Thanks bros
          Is wrenching/repairing hard? I can build a PC.

      How's the situation with parts availability? They are hard to find for the classics, especially not domestic for your country. For Russia/Belarus and some others ordering abroad became much more cumbersome lately.
      >I can get USSR cars easily, they're everywhere, cheap as frick, and some look cool, actually.
      You get what you pay for. My own experience with USSR and post-USSR Russian cars is that it's less satisfying to fix them because even the new parts you buy are of bad quality and might not even fit, and the experience of fixing them in general is less satisfying compared to decent foreign models. And for your budget you'll be doing that a lot. Adding to that, the movies featuring these cars are of some very specific aesthetics.
      >I've been watching 80's and 90's movies, man. There's something about the aesthetic.

        Rats dont bite unless you attack them and they can't run away. Whenever you find them in the shitbox, they run away as fast as they can. Then you just ozone it to sanitize and vent/ freshen it a few more times, make sure they didnt chew on any important wires and vacuum out droppings/nest materials. If your looking at older affordable cars gotta be prepared for rats.

        The bigger danger is wasps. Cause sometimes there could be hundreds nesting in the hidden parts of car and then you sit down and they get all pissed off and fly inside your clothes and sting you everywhere before you know what's going on

          I think late 70s to early 80s Camaros and Firebirds are still reasonable, just gotta avoid the ones that look directly out of Smokey and the Bandit and go a bit later. Maybe an IROC.

    Sadly you can't buy cool 80s or 90s cars anymore for that price range unless you want to do a lot of work to them to get them in decent shape, but here is a list of cool 80s 90s cars with that cool aesthetic you are talking about:

    Have you thought about the Lada Samara (VAZ-2108)? If parts are easy to get and inexpensive then this might be a good option.

        Yes, it’s just a step up from painting model figures like WH40K. You have nothing to lose if you have a car with bad paint and body damage so you might as well make the best of it.
