Lol didnt think of fiero that would be cool. I guess we will have to start looking. Its mostly for fun but being competitive would be nice. I know I need more seat time to be competitive but it helps to have a car that is fun too.

I say Miata or Mini Cooper. Both have great aftermarket support, and can be very competitive in their stock classes. The miata can be fun to go drive on the weekend you're not at an autox. Also the lower power of these cars will teach better driving than an overpowered car.

s2000 over priced, and done beat em with my FoFo so , imo...No
Yaris w/ race suspension...that would be somewhat different.
Now the Ford ranch wagon w/ the WHOLE family....WIN! lol

IMO try to find a factory turbo toyota mr2...had a ride in a non turbo mr2 @ my first autox...and the guy had the second fastest time of the day....4 1/2 yrs ago.
Then my buddy had a turbo one, that beat the pants off a v8 firbird down at OCMD.
They are a working mans ferrari...mid engine, rwd, and boosted if u can find one.
I'd have to go with a svtfocus, 6spd,great brakes, and decent aftermarket.
Plus they come with backdoors for the kids.
Good hunting
