I don't think I could replace the miata with anything.

whats the saying: "dont track it unless you can afford to crash it?"

geo metro.

The new dodge dart looks pretty if only it had a SRT turbo in the future?

I don't know why, but I want a 98 ITR with period correct mods, non-US front end, non-US wheels and a few light suspension mods.

I'd go for

S2000 C/R
E39 M5
135i
EVO RS
GC8 2.5RS
FD RX-7 w/LSx
964 911 (non-turbo)
R32/R33 GT-R

Rust free, straight body, clean and stock looking Ford Festiva. Front and rear subframes from a Miata, F20/F22, six speed. Don't even know why, that just sounds like a really fun siht box.

Nothing I'd really want would be considered "low" or "midpriced."

E36 M3 Turbo
E28 M5
E34 M5
190E Cosworth
E55AMG
03/04 Cobra
323GTX
Merkur XR4Ti (Guess I like torturing myself?)
EUDM Escort MKI
HSV GTS / G8

OK. Not a 1.4l turbo, more like something fun. Like 6.0 turbo. Yeah.

EDIT: AWD big turbo rally spec would work.

The particular definition of low and mid price in my original post was along the lines of
- toyobaru = low price
- cayman = midprice
- 458 Italia = high

Feel free to use your own definitions!

At even lower prices than a Toyobaru, my list would be:

- miata LSx
- RX7 with LSx
- IS300 with LSx

Hmm, is there a pattern there?
