New Job= New Car
Well ive been in school for business and just completed my first year of basic college and caught a lucky break and a brokerage firm is going to sponser me to take the series 7 test. So basically i will be 19 and making bookos of money and a financial adviser/ stock broker. Well anyways i plan on selling my spec to my lil bro since he has a jeep and gas is getting bad and im looking for something sporty.
The car has to have somewhat of some status. However im NOT looking for a business car but something that i can still drop in some performance parts. Currently these are my tops picks (in order)
1.) Late Model Toyota Supra
2.) Late model R34/35 Skyline (i can get them fairly easily and legal for around 50k new)
3.) Last Gen Mazda RX-7
4.)newer Mustang Cobra (ive always been kind of at ends with america made but i think i can settle for a gas guzzling S/C stang)
On top of this my gf of 2 1/2 years has a 07 Ford F-150 (FX2 body style) and with gas i plan on possibly getting her a newer lancer. So i dont need what ever car i get to be completly reliable because like any sporty car it wont be but i will have a backup.

Supra: Ok, Id rather have something like the Mitsubishi 3KGT VR-4. I like the AWD, Active Aero, AWD steering etc... and (IMO) Its a bit more of a Luxury car, that is if you plan on being mature and are done with any street-racing dreams you may have liked.
Skylines: Mehhhh, they are a bit pricey to upkeep... along with the 50K price tag to start, just not my bag of chips (If you have THAT much money, I would go the used Ferrari 348 Route...). Though the price will run another 10-15K for a decent one and insurance will be higher, but if you have that much money...guess its not a big issue. Not to mention the skylines aren't exactly handling dreams (IMO).
RX-7: My friend has one that is pushing a bit under 400RWHP. It has blown 2 APEX-seals, gets under 10MPG (mostly because his driving), and he is looking at a LS1 motor to swap into it. Personally if you are going to lightly modify it... the RX7 is the way to go, amazing handling and just a beauty plain and simple. If you want to heavily modify it, do yourself a favor and swap the LS1 motor and save yourself the High-HP headaches the 1.3litre-Rotary will cause you.
Newer Mustang: No, not as much class as the aforementioned (most people who own these seem to be ~45year old males who want to recapture youth, or ~35year old females who make good money and want a sporty car). That said, they are nice cars, and I have nothing against the car itself persay.

Have you ever considered a motorcycle?
something tells me this guy would become a grease stain on the highway if he got a bike.
