I'm not a huge fan of the American muscle car (except Corvette or Viper) but I haven't really looked at the new stuff that much. Might be worth the research and if it would be something I'm interested in. I had thought about a used 911 (my dream car). They kind of worry me getting used though. Are they still reliable in the 35K range? M3s are great cars too all though I'm looking for something a little more exotic looking.
As far as my finances, I still have a year of payments on my WRX which is definitely a factor. I might wait until I get that paid off. Currently I am at the South Pole for work but will only be here another month. I will be moving to Tampa in January and I would definitely look into buying a home but I'm not sure if I will be there any longer than 3 years. I don't really want to commit to a home (especially in the FL housing market) if I will need to sell in a couple years. I have all my debt paid off except for the WRX.
