first car what to get??

Alright. as mentioned in the introduction I'm 17 and I'm shopping for my first car. I thought about getting a truck because i hunt and it would be very useful in many ways. But i enjoy cars way more and they have better gas millage and funner to drive so i focused my search on cars. But her is the thing i really don't know what to look or what to get. At the moment Im looking at Toyota MR2, Toyota celica (my bro already has and i dont really want to get the same thing),Mitsubishi 3000GT, Mazda miata,
Honda prelude. So any suggestions any comments on those cars would be great . I'm new to all of this so the more info the better

cheers

Get a ford ranger or chevy s10, you won't regret it. Good gas mileage comes with the 4 cylinders and a 5spd makes them fun.

You shouldn't omit an S-10 just because you think it can not pull anything..... it can pull more than a car, right?

With that said get what will make you happy, and not others happy.

Don't feel offended but all this cars look like soap dish. Maybe because that I'm a huge gay and fun of dodge vans. When I was looking for my first dodge van for sale i went on this website http://www.pennysaverusa.com/categor...us-1/sections/. Anyway, I suggest Mists because is a legendary brand of cools cars.

Awww, hobo's first post back, and he has to quote my post. I feel speschul nao. And here's the sad part. Even if I edited my post, you'd still have the quote, so the image would still be here. Nice thinking.

1. Yes, I guess maybe you are special... In a short bus kind of way. If you had opened your eyes and turned on your brain, or as I've preached for years "Think, Type, Submit", you'd have the ability to chronologically track my posts and clearly determine that this is not my "my first post back". Fail.

2. Yes, nice thinking, exactly as I had planned. You can edit your post any way you wish, but my post will still display the garbage you previously posted. And now you've even admitted to it. Good job.

So can you tell me why Twhat is banned for being a pinhead, but you won't be for posting obscenities? Double standard anyone?

Hello,

First car should be reliable, economical and not very fussy, Hyundai or Ford could be a better option.
