Autocross car for the wife,

I took my wife on a couple fun runs at the last Autocross I went to a few months ago and now she wants to get into it when I get back from deployment, however she is not comfortable driving the SVT, or any stick shift for that matter, so she wants us to get an automatic car for her that would also be our backup car if the SVT or her Blazer breaks down.
So my question is simple, what is a fairly good automatic autocross car for a novice? We would want somthing used, easy to drive and reliable, it will be stock for awhile, except for some better tires.
I am leaning towards a Prelude but I don't know how good they are as an autocross car, I just know she likes the way they look.

Thanks for any help you can give us.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.
