Default Car search... again

So i shifted gears again and now that the weather is starting to get nice i stopped being concerned with the gas and started looking for a fun car to drive. Cobalt SS was on my mind until i notice all were around 15K for the turbod. and that the Supercharged of the 05-07 was still 10K.

Ive been looking at stangs for a while and cant seem to find anything that i like usually in the range of 7K or so. So just looking around let me know what everonese thinkin or have any suggestions im just looking around know how we all like to go fast

You can go with the baby Bonny- a Mazda 3 grand touring. Almost all of the toys and comforts of a SSEi Bonny except the engine performance. Heated leather seats and all. Probably can get on on E-bay for 8k if you have time to wait. Attached is a link to a hatchback (I strongly prefer the sedan), but it will give you an idea on how nice and the interior is.

How is a mustang going to save you gas? Also, it barely makes more horsepower than an ssei. What exactly are you looking for? just something fast? or something fuel efficient?

Anymore its just a car ill enjoy driving. And the hp difference in a stang is minimal.. However, u have to add into the account its a stick and rear wheel.. Alot easier to get power to the ground that way.

Ive also found a Cobalt SS I like at a dealer and am in the works of talking with them to see what they can do for me.. At this stage i have no clue what im gonna end up getting.. This has been an on going search for about 5 months
