    I think the new Azteks look cool. So do the PT Cruisers, but I think they're junk. I think if I had $50k to spend on a car I'd get either an black Audi TT or a black BMW Z3. Any black BWM for that matter would look good. Currently my parents own a 88 Nissan Maxima and a 96 Acura luxury car (I forget the name of it).

    We bought a PT Cruiser in June.... still haven't gotten it yet. It should be coming in fairly soon, November at the latest we're told.

    My newest dream car is the
    2000 Toyota Celica GT-S (not the regular GT)
    but if I could buy another one, I would definately get a BMW Z3 convirtable.

    I too really like the Miata. I am not yet old enough to drive, but... only 1 more year! Maybe I will buy one.

    What I would really like right now is a SUV. A Ford Explorer XLT (Minus the Firestone tires) Eddie Bower Edition. Deep Royal Blue, Black, or Deep Forest Green. If not an Explorer, a Expedition or Excursion will do.

    However, I would settle for a Chevy/GMC Suburban if I REALLY had to. (Chevy is like a rock...just sits there and doesn't do anything )

    If I had to settle for a car:
    Ford Mustang GTX, Pontiac Grand Am/Prix, any BMW, ya know, anything nice.

    If I really was rolling in the doe I would also have a Cadillac STS. It may be a bit of a boat, but baby it is one luxery car.
    Computer everything and power behind the pedal...my uncle and grandparents tell stories of hitting the gas and passing people doing 80+ with ease. I get to drive them when I am up there, and man, those things are sweet.

    BMW.

    My mum used to have an old BMW, not sure on the model, but it was one fine car.

    When I'm a rich webdesigner/programmer I shall buy one, or two.

    My dad has a BMW 525i with a sunroof, heated, leather seats, etc. and he's giving it up me in like two years when I can drive! I'm so excited! (*deep breath*)

    Really? Man, when I saw that "thing" I had to laugh. I really don't think they could have designed it to be any uglier. There have been quite a few really cars over the years (wish I had a link to a site that displyed them all), and I believe this one is destined for that gallery of shame. I think it will be a timeless ugly.

    AAAAARGH.. You guys have never seen Italian cars... Italian cars are design cars with aeroplane engines in the back (figure of speech)

    Ferrari
    Lamborghini
    ...

    And german cars

    Porsche
    Audi TT (much cooler than Z3 or Z5)
    ...

    Italian cars rot in Britain and I can turn as many (if not more) heads in my '69 Ford as i can in a Lotus Elise or a BMW 840i!

    German cars are by far the best... think about it: BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagon, and several other major type of cars are built in Germany. (Are Volvo's built there?)

    Ahem - we bought back Rover from BMW (God knows why after their mammoth stich-up job!)
    We build/own TVR's (pure sex)
    Lister Storms (which beat all the Porsches, Dodge Vipers and Ferrari's in the GT championship! )
    Noble's - a new and very sexy machine!
    Stealth B5 - 0-100-0 World Record Holder which beat the record set by the Mclaren F1 (owned by ???)
    Until recently we owned Marcos but sold it to the Swiss (doh!)
    And we have a thriving Kit-Car industry (coz we like to build cars ourselves!).
    Besides which we build most of the F1 and Indy Cars

    But other than that our car industry sux!
