In short you don't need to go so far to find something.
Check out the classifieds up top.
Not sure your budget but Kwebb's is for sale, in ohio, nice car.
Other's are around and some coming up for sale in the off season.
IMO, If you're new to SM use the search engine up top, read, do your home work before you buy.
A lot of info here.

My buddy and I are trying to find a ride to co-drive. We've talked to kwebb and his is a little out of our price range for a first go; we're looking for a sub $10k regional racer. We'll keep our eyes open during the off season for sure. Any other advice on what to look for?

Look for rust on control arms, and cam bolts as well as body rust, look for out of date equipment ( belts, nets, etc.), look for crash damages not fixed properly, look at the cage for full 360 degree welding, and for the quality of design of that cage, Your Life Depends on all of these things. Dont be concened to much with the legality of a motor, trans etc, as when you start out even if the car is illegal in those areas it most likely will have no effect on your results.
Do a leak down test on the engine, to guage the longevity of the engine, and the cylinder head. Consider carefully how many races have been done on the suspesion, as a car that doesnt handle well will only hold you back, and last but not least try to buy a car from someone with a good reputation in the SM community, they are least likely to screw you, as their reputation is on the line.
