Default What should i get?

Well long story short i had 2 vehicles needed to get down to one. Truck was taking to long(couple months up for sale) to sell so i put my bonne up for sale, sold it in about a week, to this smokin hot babe, i mean HOT.

anyways now i have a truck i dont want and if it doesnt sell soon im thinking about trading it in for something else, and if need be use the money from the bonne to get something nice, but i dont really want to spend over 18,000, and i will not go above 20,000(in case i find something really nice). that is what leads me to this dilema. what should i get.

Right now im leaning towards another bonne, maybe a ssei depends on the price(i had an 01 SE)

Im also thinking about an Aurora. but i heard they have some problems? is that true?

And a Jag, (since i cant get women with my looks, might as well try to get them with my car), a nice used x or * type.( i think thats what they are)

Im not too sure just yet.but one thing im sure about is that if i got a jag my insurance lady will kill me.

So what do you guys think, dont like my choices make a suggestion im open. I need input. i have to get something

If a girl wants you cause of your car then that girl isnt worth it. Shes just going to have another guy with a nicer car on the side. Drive what you want and what you can afford. If you really want to pick up chicks then just by a Pontiac Fiero Lamborghini/Ferrari Kit Car for $10,000-20,000

Now you know and knowings half the battle.
