I have decided to set a goal of saving approximately $5,000 by this time next year that I will then combine with a loan from my parents (probably around $2,000) to buy another car as a newer, more reliable daily driver.

Hopefully I can be disciplined enough to faithfully put this money away.
Either of these two body styles is good with me, but I love the look of the older one below:
