Ya see, the problem we have here is that you all want shiny red sports cars, when the real fun can't be found on a paved road.

My wife and I have two vehicles, a 1995 Geo Tracker rag top with about $3000.00 worth of Calimini upgrades and our newest aquisition, a 1999 V6 Amigo that's up on blocks as we speak for lockers and a suspension upgrade. Vacations for us are logging roads and rendevous.

Yes, I've had the car for 4 years now, which means the warranty is up. I'm more than a little nervous about that!

LOL....well, if I didn't have to worry about more than me and a passenger I would go for something even more extreme, but yes they do definitely kick much butt. I can't wait to see the new m3 and m5 with the 8 and 10 cylinder engines!

current car, '02 Dodge Neon, great little car, perfect compromise between fuel economy (30-40 MPG depending on how i drive it), performance (0-60 in the high 8's, low 7's) and handling (handles like it's on rails)

Dream car(s)
Dodge Viper
'69 Dodge Charger w/ 440 Hemi

Dream motorcycle;
Yamaha V-Max

Well...time for me to add. My daily commuter is also one of my fun ones...BMW R1100RT. It's a '97, has over 50k miles on it, but is going very strong.

For off road, I've got my Dodge Ram 4x4 at the ready.

For the family...a well appointed Dodge Grand Caravan takes my wife and family where we need to go.
