When looking to buy your next car with the intention of modifying it, there are a couple of things to figure out prior to calling people up and negotiating the price down.

You have to start with a realistic budget in mind. You have to know how much disposable income you have, how much you have in your account now that you can splash out, and whether or not you're going to finance your next project car.

You also have to decide what the purpose of the car is to you. Are you going to be using it as a daily driver, a project car or even a race car? All this will dictate what vehicle is best for you, as well as what sort of modifications you might need.

On top of that, you need to do research on what the law states on what mods are legal and how that might affect your insurance premium.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your car purchase needs to have a lot of aftermarket support. You can't rely on custom fabricated parts, this will drain you out financially faster than the time it takes for the milk in your refrigerator to go bad...

So, once you have figured all that out, you will have a better idea of what sort of car might suit you. Here are 10 affordable cars to modify:
