So /o/, my professor in my writing class told me to pick a question I wanted answered for the research paper that we'll be finishing the semester off with. I had started looking into what the perfect car for me was, like way back almost a year ago. I never really came to a conclusion, so I decided that I'd look into it now. I'm in the car like 6-10 hrs a day on AVERAGE, driving over 120 miles almost every day, so I want a true drivers car that doesn't bore me.
The one big contender with keeping all of the things I want is the dodge charger hellcat. If they're advertising it honestly, it'll output supercar horsepower while still being practical enough to fit a family. That's what I like. Power, but fun, 4 seaters.
What are other powerful, practical, but fun cars. Gas mileage isn't a problem. Price tag under 75,000$ for right now. I can narrow it down to what I can actually afford later
ITT: What cars are very practical (storage space, seats, doors) but still fun to throw around? Coupe? Saloon? If its a really fun two seater, its not out of the question. Same applies to a little more boring 4 door sedans. No econoboxs please.

I'm thinking about buying a project car, a 1986 ford mustang 5.0 5-speed. It runs rough, but it runs and drives. I have a list of things it needs to be done, i have done some research about fixing these issues and i think i can do them on my own. I only have experience changing oil, replacing radio + wire harness, taking apart dash and fixing the shift indicator on my dads car.
It has a rough idle. The guy says you need to rev it for the first 45 sec after starting it and then its fine. He says it might be the TPS, a $45 replacement part
It is leaking oil from the valve covers. A quick google and it doesn't seem to hard to fix. This is a bit more costly at $150-200 in parts. If the oil leak does not stop i might need to rebuild the engine. not too confident on that.
Besides that i might get a tune up kit and tune her up as well to make the car run right.
other small thing that could be put on the back burner: cracked dash, no carpets, dent in fender, no exhaust from cats down, radio missing wires, back hatch has normal rust, and power locks killing the battery.
are these huge red flags to run away or a way a car enthusiast could get into some wrenching?
