Dream Cars You May Actually Buy

Instead of dreaming about Koenigseggs or Paganis, I prefer cars that are within reasonable reach of typical budgets, maybe with some serious stretching. I am the most interested in:

low-end: Mitsubishi Evo 10
mid-end: BMW Z4-M Coupe or Porsche Cayman (S or non-S)
hi-end: Noble M15 (if it comes to the US)

in fact when it comes time to trade-in my current car, the mitsu, bimmer and porsche would definitely be on my shopping list.

what's on YOUR list?

If little Mercedes offered a little more shoulder room, I'd like this one --

So, I might have to pick an older model like this one ---

But, if I wanted to go back in time, I'd pick this one --

But, since I can't afford a high end foreign car, I'd probably have to get this one ---

We just replaced our old Ford Explorer with a Toyota Highlander. So, I don't have to dream about cars for awhile. I'm hoping that there will be lots of economical cars for rednecks out there next time we buy . . .

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

I like your list.
This one is on my list. Environmentally friendly with performance and styling.

Sold out for 2007 models but taking orders for 08'.

Don't laugh, but I want a 2007 Chrysler Sebring with a 4-cylinder engine.

Motor Trend says it's a grandpa car that is for people who think Buicks are too racy. shocked I think it looks pretty cool, has distinctive styling, and gets 32 mpg on the highway. Plus, I could buy it new at my local Carmax with no fuss, no muss, and no negotiating. grin

If I don't get that I might settle for a used 2006 or 2007 Ford Taurus with a 6-cylinder engine. Then I'll take it to the Ford plant in Atlanta that just shut down so I can show it where it was born. wink

Or...I might go lay down until this car fever passes. wink

1 penny per mile.
