Need a sub $500 car for 24 hours of Lemons

I'd love to enter the 24 hours of Lemons this year with some friends, so were hunting down cars. Preferably anything RWD, and stick over auto, but more importantly tough and reliable. Gotta atleast have a solid engine and trans, the body and interior can be in hell, doesn't matter to a $500 "race car" :p:

I'm out in Cypress, TX (north west of Houston). Cheaper you can let it go, the better. We only have a $500 limit for the car and any performance bits (safety items like the roll cage, brakes, tires are not on the budget).

Thanks. Been hitting up craigslist like mad, have struck out 3 times now on good cars (that turbo-tbird was really apealing too)

Currently have my eyes on some old Detroit Iron, a 88 town car, 84 Monte Carlo, and a 85 Cadi. Really want something stick-shift, but, RWD and Tough are #1.
Destruction is not the goal... damage happens though, lol. But it's a cheap 24 hours of Le Mans, aka LeMons. It's a load of fun.
There's a few SC2s up with blown head gaskets... how easy is it on them?
