So Fun To Drive! — This is a car that everyone should drive at least once. It is so fun on winding country roads, and smooth as can be on the freeway. It requires a little maintenance now and again, so it helps to know cars.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Very, very fun

Cons: Italian wiring

Orrsome! — This thing rocks! Fast, corners well, only leaks from a few places, fine crop of dents, non matching paint job. It needs a little bit of love, thats all! Italian styling - rocks Italian build quality - not so good. Ah well!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Picking up the ladies

Cons: its Italian

Peppy Stylish Fiat — FIAT got some things right with this car. And contrary to popular opinion a well maintained FIAT once sorted is not a headache to take car of. This car is peppy and has some zip, not to mention classic good looks.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great fun to drive! Surprisingly comfortable modern ride, soft top goes up and down in 5 seconds, Classic style.

Cons: Rust, so buy a good one!

A Classic — The first convertible I purchased after relocating to California. Was on my wish list for a long time as an affordable way to drive a gorgeous car designed by Pininfarina. Rather roomy for a two seater, very comfortable to drive, fun, and overall reliable for the age (bought it in '95).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Pininfarina, gorgeous looks, spacious

Cons: Oil consumption, Fiat quality
