    ae86 corolla, kp61 starlet, toyota mr2, early ford escort/capri/cortina, volvo 300, honda beat, suzuki cappacino, could go on all day but if you're looking for something cheap to drift then mx5 is the answer

    +1 for mx5. Everything else on that list will be: utter dogshit in anything resembling standard form, fortunes to buy, impossible to find or if you're lucky, all of the above.

    You can get a 1.6 e36/46 but good luck doing anything with it. Get an MX5.

    Mx5. Done.

    If you can't control a fwd car in slippery conditions, you're in for a bad time with rwd.

    Get an AWD if you are worried about spinning. Although if you are losing control on country lanes then you are driving wrong and are a danger to other road users. Make sure your tyres are good as bad tyres = bad times when you want traction.

    Bad tyres are my guess. I had budgets on an Evo and that spun going slow on country lanes. On my impreza I have decent tyres and it refuses to slide.

    The problem with FWD (especially in Devon and Cornwall I found) is that they get stuck when trying to mount mud to let cars pass. I've pushed a lot of small hatchbacks out of mud when I lived there :o

    If you can't drive a fwd car without spinning out..... you can't drive...
    Look up 'lift off oversteer'
