hey playboy! welcome to the boards bro!

well, i would go with a CLK 500 for $53K. Fit, finish, power, handling and a lot of class. Spend the rest of your $75K on a used 4x4 cause you won't be driving the MB in the snow.

I've heard that generally speaking, Saleens suck and the customer service and warranty are horrible. Why not just replace the stock blower on an 03 with a Kenne Bell, set it at 18+ psi and get a saleen ground effects kit. It'll smoke most cars on the road including exotics...which it does already with minor mods. As for bang-for-the-buck, it cant be beat. All the other cars i mentioned above cost almost twice as much. The price of superior quality. If I had the $$, I would have gotten the M5. I drove my cousins pretty hard and it was SWEET and ALMOST as fast as my 03 except with $30K worth of luxury to boot.

hmmm.... the Corvette or the Lexus SC 430. Depends on your taste. The Corvette is more for racing and stuff, while the Lexus is more for cruising. Corvette is WAY faster, but Lexus will seat 4. Both are Very nice cars though.

Well I thing that Supra Boy here is dead Wrong 8) I think That a Corvette is The Best way to use your $75,000 and hot rod it up. Just add some Twin Turbos and it will Run Circles around any Supra (supras are good but not that great). Plus they don't Make Supras any more so Parts will be harder and more EXPENSIVE to get. Well thats my opinion

You could get a R34 Skyline GTR Nuremburg Spec for less then that here.

When done up properly, they have no problems beating Supras. I guess thats why there label Japans Best Sports Car.
