What would you buy?

In this edition of ‘what you would buy?,’ we want to know what car you would get on a fixed budget.  Gyro and I have been going over these scenarios tirelessly, knowing that these scenarios will eventually come into reality at some point in time. We’re just getting mentally prepared.

For $20k, what you get?

I’d opt to get a either the e30 or e36 M3.  I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, I love higher roof lines.  That’s how cars should be built.  Why?  We are meant to see the road and everything around us.  The newer M3’s are great machines, don’t get me wrong, but they are missing that raw edge that defines hooning.



These cars are great for everyday thrashing, whether its a quick trip to the market that ends up being a two hour canyon run or racing the teenage ricer at your local stop light.   They are the quintessential factory tuned cars that you won’t feel embarrassed enough to tint the front windows.  Rear wheeled drive is the platform that any driver should choose to drive if they want ‘a driver’s car.’

I’m sure there so many other great cars to be had for 20k, what would you get?
