Cool Toss me your used car IDEAS (Spin-off)

List used cars that you would like to have, they are in your price range, and for some reason or another you haven't pulled the trigger...

I'll start: Viper GTS 1996-2002 (Gotta have a garage, before I get one ). I like the GTS much better than the R/T or even the newer models

996 911. Owning one just doesn't make sense yet.

I would love to have one of these some day as well.

My other choice is one of these:


Say what you will about C4 Vette's, but they will always have their place with me as they remind of my childhood and good memories with my dad. I haven't pulled the trigger on one because it would have to be a third car, and my wife despises C4's and would rather see me save the money and get a newer CTS-V in a couple of years.

I could also swing an 07 CTS-V, but scared about driving one daily and reliability issues as well as the dated interior. It just isn't me, other than the performance aspect.

I wouldn't mind owning a C4 again... I remember looking at an auction in ebay a few years ago and saw a 1990 ZR-1 with no reserve sell for $11k (I wanted to bid on it... but I was scare of having to find parts if it ever needed repairs).

I will own one of these someday but I have no garage and currently 4 cars. The rx7 will make 5 :P. I could buy one right now but I'd rather use the money for a DP on a house and move out of my condo.

I should of sold the Camaro and the Ford Mistake and gotten me a Viper GTS instead of the CTS-V but i needed something more practical. Maybe in a couple of years i'll be in the market for one.

Re: Toss me your used car IDEAS (Spin-off)

I saw one of those GS's a few weeks ago at a car show. That's probably my 2nd favorite C4 behind a ZR1.

I don't know if i could realistically afford one (well i could, but i'd wipe out the money i'm living on) but i've always loved these.



or maybe one of these

I'd love to see an LSX swapped Delorean, complete with Flux capacitor About 7 years ago i saw a BTTF replica at the turkey run for sale for ~ $30k.

looked alot like this.




speaking of swaps, if i had more money than i knew what to do with, i'd buy one of these and drop an LS9 into it but make it look bone stock how embarassing would it be to get your doors blown off by a stock looking roadmaster woody wagon?

Talking about the RX-7.... I wouldn't mind having an older NSX, if it was low miles and nicely priced (people want to much for them )

1990 Camaro IROC-Z, low miles, in either blue or gray, with t-tops. Like this:



The only reason I don't have one is for lack of garage space and too many garage ornaments already (2011 SS, and a Ducati)

I was just checking them out. It looks like I can get one in my price range under 20k but the gas mileage killed it for me. I can't get something that does worse than the Z06.
