Most likely a 300+hp Lotus Exige!
Maybe a 450whp EVO VIII or IX!
Maybe a 700hp Ultima GTR!

Probably a BMW or a SAAB or both. Definitely not a Cadillac or a Mercedes. I still want some kind of two seater sports car even with the Volvo's. If I would not have found the yellow one after buying the white one I would have the sports car now. Probably a Miata.

I had one of these, a sedan, it blew a head gasket, I make a habit of test driving every one that I see and every one has had a blown head gasket. I probably wouldn't get another one. Although they are very nice cars.

geo metro convertible, 1985 yugo... lol yah right!!!

BMW.. the new 1 series is HOT! Need I even mention the new M3? Audi.. I loved my A4 when I had it. SAbb 93 is pretty sweet. And there is always a sweet spot in my heart for Jaguar.

I'd love to drive a Nissan Skyline GT-R34 or R35 around, a 1967 Mustang Boss 302, but realistically...probably a Toyota Camry. :P
