For $4,000 - $5,000 what are your suggestions? What would be an awesome car to drive to work every day with decent mileage, maybe 20-25 MPG? I wouldn't mind keeping it running with maintenance and repairs but it would need to start every morning. I have decent mechanical skills and don't mind working on a car when the parts are cheap. I'm looking for something Jalop but hopefully with working A/C.

Some of my own ideas, 90s two door Tahoe, 90s Integra, AWD Civic, nice Iroc-Z, Comp G Grand Prix, VUE, Pinto, Brat, 2-door Cherokee, Diesel Merc,
