Fun, Quick And Cheap — Lightweight car with approximately 170 HP, in my opinion it has plenty of power. Engine is 2.0 L in line 4 cylinder with twin overhead cam. Close gear ratio, will easily top itself out in 5th gear around 130 is my guess. 4 wheel disk brakes, no drums, and wide tires give it a little more grip for braking. No anti- lock, so decently easy to lock up the tires. Very tight car, handles very nimbly and very fast around corners. front wheel drive makes it very easy to control in a corner. If the back end starts to rotate, you just punch it and it pulls it back into line. Got the car used with a hammered engine. the previous owner drove it hard and was neglectful of oil changes and other maintenance. Put a used engine in, and expect the engine to outlast the car. Exterior is a tiny bit on the boxy side, being an older car. White paint, in need of new coat. two door with a small spoiler. definitely sporty looking. Gun metal 5 spoke rims. Interior has dark grey cloth seats, dash is gray plastic. Front seats are amazing for autocrossing, because they hold your sides very securely. Because I increased the timing to 18 degrees before TDC, I need to put 93 octane gas in the car, so that makes it a little more expensive. Still gets avg 28-30 mpg so not bad for a little 2.0 L sports car. I don't have an accurate perception of maintenance costs, because I buy parts and install them myself. Cost of parts are cheap though. For me this car is a blast to drive. I know most men love shear power and speed when they get behind the wheel, but I tend to lean more towards how fast a car goes around a corner. It still has a decent amount of power (enough for the torque to yank the steering wheel out of your hand) so it's not slow. But it's made for the turns.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fun to drive, by no means under-powered, not to mention fast around corners, decent gas mileage, and inexpensive to maintain.

Cons: stick shift is annoying in stop and go traffic

Rust Rocket. — Mine was a rusted out piece of junk that has had too many different engines in it to count. It would rarely start, the headlights didn't work, the master cylinder leaked, the brakes were squishy, it over heated regularly, and smelled like mold. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

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

Pros: I didn't.

Cons: All of it.

Zippy Car With Crash Safety — A nice sporty little car. Light, quick, nimble, and crash safe. The 2.0L engine in this little car kicks ass with 140 HP and less that 2500lbs, this thing can get up and go! Interior was kind of ugly with a tall shifter and the 14 inch wheels were undersized for the performance of the car. Really fun with a 7k RPM redline! It likes the revs too!

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

Pros: Will keep you alive in a crash, fun to shift at redline

Cons: Very plain looking, boring interior

I Would Definitelt Buy Another One — loved it, bought it for under $500 and it lasted me over 2 years before giving me any problems. Parts to hook these cars up are everywher and cost near nothing. I couldn't believe the 34mpg I was getting especially with over 500pounds of stereo in the trunk.

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

Pros: Reliability, gas mileage++, fun to drive

Cons: no power, couldn't get atransmission that would keep 5th gear.

Second Car — Second car I ever owned. Five speed manny. Blew the clutch delivering pizza. Felt like a go kart cuz it was so little. Fun though. I should never have gotten rid of it. Guys: if a girl tells you to ditch a car you really like, ditch the girl.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: go cart handling, fun to shift such a slick transmission

Cons: slowish
