So i would like to get another ride????

So i'm planning on getting another, hopefully within the next 1-1 1/2 year. my only problem is I cant decide what I want to get. I dont want to spend more than 10k. I really kinda want a 1999-2004 mustang gt and build the crap out of it. I dont really want another 4cylinder just cause I feel the urge to have raw power from a rawring engine. Anyways, opinions on what I should look into???

my picks.

1. 1999-2004 Mustang GT

2. Another focus but a sedan?

3. Camaro

4. GTO

5. Mazda 3 or 6

6. Eclipse GSX????

7. Scion XB (it would be more of a bling car I guess, their not fast enough)

8. SRT-4

9. Cobalt

10. 240 sx


Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

the price of an early c5 vette should be just over 10k in another 1.5 years.

I'm partial to the GTO. But as an owner of one, I hope the price hasn't dropped from what they are now to $10,000 in a year's time, that would be some major depreciation.

The Mustang is a good choice. If you're leaning towards Mustang or something with a V8, I'm inclined to think you may not be that happy driving an xB.

yeah im leaning towards v8. And the thing with the xb is that it would be like a show car. I would do the sound system, rims, paint, etc. But its just not practical. And IF I did that it would be good, not ghetto.

i agree about the WRX. if you get the one that is not an STI but still turbo'd you can make them crazy fast. i have a cousin that did this and that car is a beast. and the all wheel drive is fantastic. good luck man.

You made up your mind that quickly??

My advice....go drive every vehicle on your list. You'll find your likes and dislikes much easier that way, and your choices will widdle down I'm sure.

^^^^ i agree with him. another thing to consider is where you live. if you live in a place like texas where it is mostly flat and straight you should consider getting something that is fast in a straight line while if you live in the hills where the roads are more curvy you should get something like the WRX that will be really good at the corners.
