I purchased a 1997 5 speed Altima about 2 years ago, gave it to my bro in law and it is returned needing a clutch. Car runs fine inspire of 300k miles. Leaks from the front seal and front end is wore out. It's actually pretty complete.
I've always been into cars and my wife and i reliable transportation. I have a few dollars to spend, but the pocket book definitely isn't open ended.
This Altima is far from my dream car and will never be.
Is it a waste of time to make needed suspension and engine repairs, and put some OK tires on it and beat the hell out of it at an auto cross event, or should I throw in a clutch and trade it for whatever I can get?
Looking at it as a cheap car to rag on and learn competitive driving with
