I know this is a focus forum but...

I recently got a higher paying job and will have my pzev paid off in 6 months. So its probably going to my younger brother who is 15, any ideas on what I should buy next? I love my focus but I really don't use my backseat/trunk, I just want a 2-seater with power for 20-25k.

I was thinking a 2003 350z track style, I found one with 11,000 miles for 25,000 or a new GTI 1.8T and swap out the smaller turbo for 250+whp Any ideas?

look into used MR2 spiders, if you can find one. there is one for sale here in denver at a dealership for 17,900, if i remember correctly, i took that thing for a spin and it is a great little car. not powerful exactlly, but i am sure you can make it that way. and that thing handles beautifully.

that is my two cents.

I agree with HRW, Mazdaspeed Miatas are the *****. I sat in one at mazda raceway. I didn't actually get to drive it, but just sitting in it was awesome. Those seats are so comfortable, and those things are quick!
