    Just a note on C6 Corvettes since I hopped on that train a year ago and got one (which I love dearly)… if you get a 2008+ instead of a ‘05-‘07 you get a 30 horsepower bump and the LS3, which is an insanely great platform to start modifying on especially for drag racing or autocross. Also if you can find a Z51 package even better, since you get a few handling goodies with that.

    If you find an E46 M3 for under 20k it’s either an SMG or has problems. Even the regular 3 series has started to creep up in value.

    Sure, the BMW may sell for under $20k, but you're going to spend WAY more than that fixing it. Junk.

    It seems to me that our cars are cheaper in Russia. For 20 thousand dollars, you can buy such cars as: Cadillac Fleetwood, Mercedes-Benz C-Class W205, Jaguar XJ X351, Cadillac CTS III, Mercedes-Benz S-Class W140, (limousine) and all these cars are not more than 6 years old, except W140 and Cadillac Fleetwood. For anyone who is interested, I can give more examples.

    I had a 2005 E46 M3 back in 2011. Alpine White with a CSL body kit, tons of carbon fiber. Red leather interior. Man, the memories. I’ve owned tons of cars, many of which were more expensive, and you just won’t find that pure joy and feel in many other cars. I had a few modules go out and needed some clutch work around 66k miles. Autowerks wanted $9k for repairs and I was a broke college kid at the time so I sold it for 10 grand. I regret it every day. Actually ended up tracking it down and tried to buy it back from a different owner. He wanted $26k and it was sitting at 145k 😂

    Great list. But like everything, do your homework. I bought a Boxster (on C&B) and it turned out to need a LOT more work than the car is worth. I got screwed. Make sure the seller is reputable and isn't dumping a used up car.

    What about the late model Taurus SHO’s? Mine is a Magnetic Metallic gray, picked up for 18k. 365hp is enough for fun and can drive it year round, plus has all sorts of options and plenty of room. A quick tune can get you an extra 100ft/lbs of torque, too.

    interesting - surprised you can still get that gen Land Cruisers for that kind of money. Can confirm that gen WRX is lots of fun for the money - not for everybody, gotta really want to drive a stick with a turbo since the CVT just is a bad fit, but it's a fun car. Kinda wish I fit in a Miata ND...

    S2000 barely faster than a Civic below vtec. WRX is all about the noise, which disappeared with the DI engine. And how the hell did you fit into an ND Miata? I am a few inches shorter than you - NA was a bit too small, ND was definitely a sardine car.

    I was really hoping you wouldn't say miata. I'm getting tired of used miata being as expensive as they are already. Now they will get worse. Several year old miatas are selling for close to msrp still. It's breaking the rules and not losing value in the first 5 years.... Lol
