Buying first car, minimal funds, am considering a '91 Honda for $1,000. Private seller says it needs a new cylinder and tires. Can I get it roadworthy for under $3000?

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Any and all help is appreciated, please educate me because I have little
knowledge of auto motives.

$1000 is not enough to get a decent car, maybe enough to get you through the year. You need to spend at least $5K min in my book. But do not buy that Honda! If it needs a cylinder, that means it needs an engine.

You can do an engine swap for 3k pretty easy...
