Hello guys,

This summer, I will be starting my Course/Apprenticeship in Vehicle Maintenance, and I wanted to get a car or engine for me to practice on and just fiddle around with. (instead of breaking my parents car ) What would be the best kind of car to start with? I have been looking around, but it suddenly came to me that more modern cars have computers and electronics in them, so could make it harder it to take apart?

Thanks

Newer cars have more things to check, but the internal combustion engine is still basically the same as it was. If you are looking for a car without electronics you looking for a car probably in the early 70's. Those are hard to find.

Ok, cool. Would a '94 Lexus LS400 littered with electronics? The other one I was looking at was an '94 MX6, because they look like sound cars, and are both under 500.
