Look around your area. Try an older jeep or k5 blazer. If you aren't going for bling then just buy used parts (ie axles, body parts, seats, etc). Kinda depends on how cheep you want to go though. I think with 8,000 you should have more then enough.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.."
