    I bought a brand new MazdaSpeed6 a couple of weeks ago. 2.3L, turbo, AWD, 6 speed - and it is pretty sweet. Also have a tweaked out 91 TSi AWD talon which hasn't been driven in probably a year.

    >>My insurance is about $1500 a year (25 year old male here)

    that's a lot of money brother. what insurance company? I pay $1200 with state farm. 23 y.o.

    >>I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SRT4,

    those are pretty cool. Light and fast. I raced one the other night and beat it by more than a car length though

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    I don't drive. I don't even have a car driver's license.
    No kidding. I'm a bike person.

    I think that Europe tends to be more like that than the US.

    I'm saving up for a 72 Corvette Stingray right now. Something I can rebuild. That is probably my "Dream Car" although at the rate I am going now I will be retired before I can afford to get what I want and do what I want to it

    98 Chevy S-10 pickup. But I really want a Jeep Wrangler. With a soft top. I'm just afraid that I'll be disappointed. Maybe it won't be as much fun as I think it will be.

    75 miles is a bit far for a bike commute to work each day. . . I think I'll keep my car.

    @ IfYouSaySo - I had a 95 S-10 for about 9 years. It was the first new vehicle I ever bought and loved it. It was almost disapointing when I got rid of it, but it was starting to become a money pit.

    My S-10 is also my first new car. It has been great; virtually no problems. Except the seats. Both the handles to recline the seats are plastic and broke off fairly early on. I never bothered to replace them.

    Yeah, the river side handle on mine broke, but other than that I hade zero problems with it for the first eight years, then ALL the wear items started to go all at once....

    Mazda 323, waiting for lising to end... Going to ask for something like Mazda 3 (happy with Mazda - why to switch?)

    GM owns both Vauxhall and Chevrolet, but their Cavaliers don't appear to be the same car.

    Oldsmobile (makes the Alero) and Saturn are also coincidentally also made by GM. The Alero was Olds's answer to a small car that a younger crowd would drive. Saturns were originally intended to be small, cheap cars, but have since branched out into SUVs and sports cars. My car is as close as what you'd get to a "luxury" Saturn; Prelude's is more faithful to their original ideas.
