Default GMForum GAME!

OK sooo I have been pondering this for a bit and think it is a really neat idea.
I was watching TopGear on the History Channel. On a recent episode, the 3 hosts had to go and buy the best car (in their opinion) for $1000. They picked a old Nissan 300zx, a 1979 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, and a Ford ThunderBird Turbo Coupe.
They then put these cars threw multiple test to find which was the best buy.

I thought we could do a version of this here. Each participating member could pick an Ad for a vehicle for $1000 or less from Craigslist or Ebay (Buy It Now). Then we could compare them to find which car wins

Power (1/4 mile, HP/TQ numbers, ect)
Handling
Comfort
Gas Consuption
Reliability
Off Road Capabilities?
Known vehicle specific problems (tranny/motor issues)
ect ect ect.

SSEIDriver97 aka Dakota suggested we pick 3-5 cars a month and we could compare them. Maybe a Poll? and members could comment and vote...
This is at the early stages.
What Do You Guys Think!?!?!?!
