Default Some Other Considerations

I thought it would be interesting to find out what other cars you guys like. We all like our Bonnevilles , but what other cars have you guys considered?

Don't be afraid to say, even if it is a civic.

I like those pics! Especially the Sky Line gtr, the Mazda and the saleen.

Allmachtige have you seen the Mazda Rx-8? If not just check out Mazda.com or something.

I'm actually looking at Subarus. Driving in Michigan can be rough in the winter and having AWD can be quite sweet (and fun when I want to pull some agressive menovers). I'm only looking at the older ones unfortunately, because I am really short on $$$$$.

However I refuse to drive a SUV or Truck because it cancels out the sweet handling AWD provides. Plus an suv is sooo lame (rollovers and overconfidence).
