Ok, the term ‘need’ is grossly incorrect. Want is far more accurate.
I’m not wanting to have to sell off any organs to buy some new supercar. My wife and i like things that are not too new. Our kids are also at an age where we don’t have to bring them with us so we are not limited to things like full back seat with legroom. My wife wouldn’t care if it was from the 80’s or 80’s as we are Gen X (‘74). I’m not one to set a fixed budget as i typically determine what i want then try and find the best value for it. But for some boundaries let’s say 25k.
So full disclosure i’m not a car guru. I just know what i like. My wife thinks she wants something from the ‘80’s. Or even 70’s. She would also like a convertible. She mentioned Porsche too so i’d have to up the budget for that.
My criteria: it needs to sound mean. If it doesn’t piss off my neighbors its not gonna do the job haha. But can’t just sound mean, needs to havr some HP. Not interested in a 4 banger with no guts with an aftermarket exhaust. I have a blender and i use it to make smoothies.
Right now i am leaning towards a late model BMW E46/M3. Like an ‘04 or ‘05. Though a late 70’s Fire Chicken i like too haha.
Interested in hearing from some real car enthusiasts. Who also play pinball cuz i’m not joining another forum. Spend too much time on Pinside lol.
