Need help deciding on a daily drive????

I have $5500 could probably go up to $6k. I am looking for something with good looks, reliable, good on gas and fun to drive. I will not mod the car much just little things like rims, cai, exhaust and some other minor bolt ons. I do not need the car to be super fast just fun on the highway and like stated above good on gas 24+ on highway. I have been thinking of a 93-96 Prelude, 95-99 Celica, just looked at the 95-98 200SE-R and also the eclipse. I will be starting a new job and driving 80 miles aday my current car will kill me on gas. Thanks everyone

The Prelude and Celica are both good-looking cars...I prefer the Prelude in most cases (depending on the year)...or what about an Integra?

Hmmm well the Geo is out of the question I want a car fun to drive. I do not need 40 mpg just 25 on highway and I will be happy. NOt really fond of the Neons. So far I really like the 4 gen Prelude, the 95 style celica and the 95-98 Nissan 240sx. Hmmm an Integra would be fun as well.

There's a lot of letters different between the words "but" and "because". I think if someone is that inept, then they deserve to not be understood. That is unless you and he are married and "you know what he means". Married guys will know exactly what I'm refering to.

Mistakes in writing aren't always typos. You might be thinking of the wrong word and type it in, and forget to spell check your post.

Newsflash! Even if he did a spell check, the incorrect word was spelled correctly. Do you have a point, and if so what do you think it is?
