If you're willing to deal with some slightly expensive maintenance, hunt down a 91 318is. I had one for a short period of time with a bilstein/h&r setup. Wasn't the fastest car in the world, but it loved being revved and handled great, not to mention excellent gas mileage

i say go with a 4-door sedan; easier on insurance compared to a 2-door, especially as a young driver.

I would suggest you to go in for a Civic, as I did the same and bought one a few months ago from autopartsfair. It came in an excellent condition well within my budget with less than 30 K miles on it. However you can also consider conducting a Google search to find out some other brands and models which meets your expectations and suits your budget.

Really depends on what your mechanical skill is and how much you need to drive it. If I had $4,000 to spend and was not going to be racking up a hundred miles a day I would pick up a pre-1975 Fiat 124, a pre-73 MGB-GT, Fox Body Mustang (2.3 Turbo or 5.0), if you are going to be driving a lot and are not a mechanic there is one car you should be looking at a Nissan Sentra/200SX they are bullet proof, parts are super cheap, and you can drive them anywhere, but the newest model you can find for your budget and just do the regular maintenance.

I just got a 4000 scholarship check that I plan on buying a car with. Looking at a prelude or civic hatchback. Any other good ideas?
At this price range, there is no better alternative than the Civic as it not only meets your expectations but will also suit your budget. There is no doubt about the reliability of the Honda cars, so there is nothing to worry about it.
I too bought a used Civic from an auto parts online store, couple of months ago I am happy that I made a good decision.

My favorite car is the 1991 Twin Turbo 300ZX

Yes, twin turbo. It comes stock with it. And you got to love the classic T-top. I personally think its kind of selfish to get a coupe, but I also fell like its stupid not to treat yourself cool

Civics are the way to go, if you are looking to save long term.

Buy an old 50s beetle you can do an engine overhaul with basic tools (for the most part)
no emissions and cheap registration, plus women love slammed death traps :D
