1967 Chevrolet Corvette...a convertible, fire engine red, 427 cid engine, 4-speed on the floor. Twice I passed up the chance to get one due to lack of funding. Now I'm hoping the third time might be the charm. Regards.

Apparently there isn't much of a performance difference between the 1.8T and the Vr6, and with some mods a 1.8T can actually out perform a VR6. That is just what I read on some VW forums and car sites.
One thing though is that you void your warranty if you ad performance chips, so a lot of people like to go with the Vr6 anyway, just in case.

Dreamexpress, have you seen a Barchetta in person?? They are great with the roof down, but not with the roof up..I like the normal Maranello a bit better personally, but I guess if you can afford a Barchetta you can afford another car for when the weather gets bad..

Actually, my '96 Tercel does a great job. It's everything that I'd ever want in a car, with the possible exceptions of 4 doors, and cruise control... But maybe a little small for a family car. I look for safety, efficiency, and reliability...
Maybe a Camry later? That's the type of car that I'd get if I made $50,000 or $150,000 per year. I think airplanes are really the only machines worth spending a lot on.
To be honest, I really don't get into cars that much. I'm pretty much an airplane guy.
