    What kind of cool car do you want, or have, that is under $50,000? I mean, I know everyone would like to drive a $200,000 car, but let's keep it at average price.

    Hmm...Corvettes are under $50K and they are fun to drive. I don't know much about the PT cruiser, but that looks cool too.

    I love Dodge cars/trucks. They are my favorite of all.

    A friend of mine has one of those Rams with 4 weels in the back.

    I want an Aztek...either that or a nice convertable (sp?): the one Jack Nicholson drives in "As Good As It Gets" is a good example.

    I want a red dodge viper rt 10 convertible.

    New they're around 70k, but you can get one used for under 50k, sometimes if you're lucky under 40k

    Right now I'm saving up to buy one, my rent is only 350 a month, I don't need a bigger apartment and I don't have a family I need to provide for so I can blow my money on a nice sports car.

    Realistic choice: Volkswagon Jetta (don't get turned off my "Volkswagon", these cars are sweet, I've always had a thing for them)

    Dream car under $50K: BMW 7 series (enough said )

    Our local Toyota dealer has a Prius on the showroom floor.

    But then again my city has installed electric rechargers in 10 different high-traffick locations and owns approximately 20 electric vehicles of their own. They even have an innovative program to pay for them. City residents can lease the vehicles for use after City hours, so they are all leased to commuters who take the buses or trains. The city uses them during the day, returns them to the commuter lots and recharge them at 5:00 p.m. so the commuters can use them in the evening. All other city vehicles except street sweepers are natural gas powered.

    That's why I want a hybrid, so I don't have to worry about charging stations. I don't think I would anyway.

    I really like Volvos

    My first car was a 1980 Volvo Sedan, and I really liked it. However, I think I'd like one of the new All-Wheel Drive Cross Country Wagons. In a deep, dark blue.

    Porsche is a payable car here in Europe. They're about the same price of Audi A6 TDI and that's a usual 'Berline'.

    Europe is cheap I agree, but prices in the UK are NOT in line with Europe and are exhorbitant.
