C5 or possibly C6 CORVETTE ?
Challenger r/t ?
Genesis coupe ?
I don't know about in Canada but down here a 1st gen viper can be had and possibly a higher miles gen 2 viper can be had for that price. Maybe a trip down to the states to buy a viper is in order ?
Wait nevermind...is this going to be your only vehicle ?
If so get a cheap 2-3 beater Honda civic / Toyota corolla and a 2009+ boxster.
SS - Can't get here.
S4 - Maybe
300 - No manual?
Challenger feels to big to be fun.
Genesis the exterior styling doesn't float my boat.
Hmm I'll look into vipers and report back.
If it is my only vehicle AWD is a + but rather swing the two car thing for now.
Driven a cayman and enjoyed it, Boxsters are more plentiful and cheaper.

With the new house pretty much here, do I want to swap out my Abarth for something else? I'm losing the garage, so it'd be spending it's time outside now. Not a problem, but my commute is extending from 3 miles to 27 miles. Still all interstate, which is not exactly 91" wheelbase conducive.
I love it. I'm really jonesing for a sunroof though so my initial thought was to just see if I can manage a straight trade for an A500 Cabrio because I really do like the car. Then I keep seeing these threads about Elantra Sports off the lot for $18K, and I think how nice a move to the next class size would be. Then there's also the rival Fiesta ST (I refuse to call it a FiST ) in that envy green. And then I also think that I've yet to own a RWD car. Losing the garage means an S2K is probably off the table now, unless I do a pave through the fence and park it in the back yard. Seems unconventional. Maybe a GT86? I've got no problem with "torqueless wonders" as I used to own a Celica GTS and moving out was solved by just keeping the pedal down longer between gear changes.
I'm coming up on 48K so I've piled on 41K miles in 26 months of ownership. I don't necessarily need to do anything at all. Maybe it's more the boredom bug setting in. Might be time to swap the piggyback for a Euro+Drive custom tune.
Something about a fresh start: I have mine everyday.
My brother has a Fiesta 1.0EB and it was fun, if slow. I've sat in a Fiesta ST with Recaros but not driven one with Recaros. I've driven one without Recaros and it's good fun but I didn't see enough of a change from my Abarth to warrant spending the cash at the time. Admittedly my Abarth is not stock and I've set it up so that I get a lot more play out of the rear than a stock Abarth would normally provide. I HAVE driven a Focus ST and the power was awesome but pushing one to the point of having real fun with it (IE getting the ass out) is not real possible with my work commute. There are no fun driving roads in Savannah. Flatland life sucks.
I'm actually thinking I might need to give the GT86 a go if I can find one at Carmax or something. The Toyota dealers here are ruthless in their 3 block test drives followed by ten years of "so how can we make this work today?"
An m3 would be great, think I'd try for e90 because v8, but heard talk and rod bearings going.

Do the 86, SAV. Do it.
You do have that old road course over next to the Westin hotel. Always forget to check that out when I'm down there...
rabbit can pick up for one of you on his next trip to montanananana
