Lol, as knowledgeable as my good man BOMBS is with regard to pugilism, and fistic issues, Im not sure I'd take his advice about looking for old, used mustangs and camaros. . Two good reasons: 1.) Those cars have a lot of issues with maintenance after 100k miles; 2.) gas mileage is about half of what you'd get with a japanese car like that honda.
To be honest, unless there is something wrong with the car the owner is hiding (which is a good possibility), that's a pretty damn good buy for a '95 civic. Mid 90's civic's will run for-fhucking-EVER with little to no maintenance issues. . VERy reliable cars. . . You'll get at least your money's worth of use out of that car. . .
If your range is 5 grand, then I would look at honda civics, and other small japanese cars. . You might be able to find a good acura, or toyota celica. . .
NOTE: like the above posters said, get somebody who really knows cars to inspect it and test drive it with you first. . . used cars are always a risk, but there are some excellent bargains out there if you know what you're doing.
