    I joined this forum to get back into the DSM world. I use to own 2 Eagle Talons 90 Turbo FWD and a 91 Turbo AWD. Ive been building LS engines and racing them since 2000 so im not looking to race a DSM I'm looking for a nice daily driver to have fun with. Finding a clean car that's not a million miles away from me is the issue. Im looking for an AWD G1 Talon or Eclipse 5 speed. Hopefully in the next few months i can find something im interested in.

    Welcome.

    https://autotempest.com is a good source to search. Now finding a clean one for a good price will be the hard part.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the info. That always seems to be an issue but if it's a clean car the price can be justified. I don't mind spending for something that is worth it to me.

    Honestly, good luck. Clean, decently priced DSMs are like non-existent anymore, and the ones that are even semi-clean people want $7500-$10,000 for. Plus the market for these things are shrinking daily.

    Not saying it's impossible, but good luck. For a fun quick daily I just ended up getting a newer car instead of paying $10,000 for something that's still modded and probably still abused. You'll get a warranty that way too.

    /Cue the flaming.

    Thanks for the replies guys it helps.
    My current daily is my 2019 GMC Denali 2500 Duramax surprisingly it gets great milage but i got it to tow my race car to distant tracks. I more want the fun of what i once had in my Talons but im in no rush to just buy what ever i find but be better prepared for when something comes up im interested in.

    Your 100% correct the pool of clean cars is shrinking fast and a lot of undesirable cars are trying to sell for bigger dollars.

    Ah, understandable for sure. But, patience will definitely pay off. Every once in awhile you'll find a gem. That one TK posted looks great.
