I'd buy the LS1 miata someone posted on the forum for 12k.

It's making me seriously sad knowing how deep I am into my car and it's still a bone stock 1.6 with a TD04 ... puke.

Have you not seen the prices of E30 M's? I wouldn't call that "cheap" especially for a 25 year old car..

No lie. I have been going back and forth about getting one for the past three years and have seen good examples go from around 16,000 to over 25,000 in that time.

My List:
E30 M3
Used Elise
Early NSX
1995 E34 M5 or 540i/6
Westfield
70's 911 (high end of range)
LSx IS300/FD RX-7

'99 Integra with twin K20's AWD funness
Escort Cosworth- always liked them
Evo RS
LSx Miata
Very interested in the New Focus RS for a daily and weekend trips
Caterham RS500 or turbo westfield
Some turbo diesel full size van for traveling and getting drunk everywhere.
My buddy and I want a twin engine car. I keep saying we need a twin Busa motored kit car thing.

I like high dollar stuff. However even if I was rich as hell I still probably wouldn't get a Lambo or such. It's hard to justify more than a house costs for a car when I could build something just as much fun.

Oh and while we are on the subject of turbo minivans

In high school I read about a guy who ran 12s with a bunch of junkyard parts and a stock turbo on a dodge minivan, been looking for a cheap one ever since.

^I nearly bought one locally for $500. it had a bunch of handicap conversion stuff in it though so it would have been a bitch to bring back to "normal"
