When I was in my twenties, I bought an '87 BMW 3 series from a friend of a friend for $800, it had 146K miles and needed a lot of work, which included: the muffler had a 5 inch hole (the car was loud enough to set off car alarms when driving by); the center support bearing was broken which resulted in the drive shaft causing an unnerving thump-thump-thump between the front seats when accelerating from a stop; the front brake pads were so far gone, the squealing of the brakes was slowly turning into just a metal-on-metal grating sound; the hood release cable was broken, the hood could only be opened by knowing the right spot in the front grill to insert a long screwdriver and twist to release the hood.

I'd been driving stick-shift cars since I was 16, but I had never tried to work on a car until this one. I bought the Bentley manual, watched videos, and talked to my friends that had e30 BMWS. I bought some tools, I found some sites that sold parts for reasonable prices, and was able to teach myself enough to repair most of the issues myself over an 8 month period. Despite all the the problems the car had when I bought it, the engine was still strong and in good condition. Once I had most issues fixed, I was constantly telling myself that a car this old had no right being this much fun to drive.

So, while I'm not really giving a direct suggestion on which way you should go, I just wanted to relate my experience of how much fun it was to learn how to work on a car using an e30 BMW (without it getting too overwhelming). And if you're not looking for a pristine e30, they can definitely be found for under $5K.

There's a few of these on Amazon like: Pilot MVL-0404 Marvel Iron Man Shift Knob - Universal Fit

I'd Google 'Marvel shift knobs' and see what comes back. You could always get a custom one made as well.
