What car do you see yourself in?

Not a Ferrari Enzo,

but on a more practical level, what car would you like to have in say a year, that you could probably afford?

For me, since I work for BMW, it'll probably be a mid-nineties 325is. Not too expensive, and easy for me to fix...plus its comfy and fast, but not too much.

That I could afford?...How about under $10K...I've seen 1990 R32 Skylines go for that much on AutoTrader, so I guess that, I6, timing chain, beautiful, Right hand drive, lots of modding opportunities

EDIT: Pics:

I would like to have a medium sized family car next. Maybe a Ford Mondeo, late nineties model, like below!

1997 BMW 318i right now. (not bad for my first car)



What I really want is a 1999 Benz e55, but I can't afford one, lol.

CK, why are you talking about an R32, then posting a supra? too late

and for me, depending on how good of a job i get, either an audi 2.0T quattro, 3.2 quattro, or an S4. used, most certainly. or a ford fusion 3.5L AWD. whenever that makes it to the world... (supposedly next year?) or a subary legacy 2.5 GT.
