Realistically? Probably another Chevy Cavalier, preferably a z24 or the 2.4 liter model. Never really cared for the 2 door model, but I liked the 4 door. I totaled my cavalier at roughly 105,000 miles, had it rebuilt, and it has almost 120,000 on it now and STILL runs like a champ. Most reliable car I've ever had.
If I could get anything I wanted though, under say... 30 grand? Maybe the Chevy Code 130 if/when it comes out? I'd have to get a bigger turbo for it or something though... 140 horses aren't that many. I'd probably also consider an 05 Mustang with an 8 cylinder. Who knows.
If I could pick anything that I may be able to afford in may lifetime? An 05/06 Subaru WRX STI. Love the styling on that bad boy.
