    1987 Toyota 4Runner (slow but bulletproof)
    1996 Nissan Maxima SE

    How was that MR2? I've been thinking about getting a spare car for fun to just go mess around in and i've been thinking about either an older MR2, an RX-7 FC or an old 240 so it'd be cool to know how those things handled...with the MR layout and all.

    I loved the car; it was a great mix of performance and reliability. Given a choice, the '93 and up had a better, less quirky suspension setup.

    One thing to keep in mind is that it may be pretty hard to find an MR2T with low miles at this point, and they will all be at least 10 years old. Things will start to break and need replacing sooner or later.

    I drove a 1993 Acura Legend Coupe. That car was the best. It was great, all the little luxuries in that car was awesome. It was a coupe, and the rear quarter windows went down. As far as i know, only the 8 series BMW's did that. It had 230hp and pulled like crazy at 80+ mph.

    99' VW Passat Wagon, Black 5 speed.

    It was a great car but after trying to drive it like a rally car it burns about a quart of oil a week. Its for sale if anyone wants it!

    1998 GMC Suburban

    1995 Volvo 850 Turbo wagon. It will be sorely missed. It was a great car to speed in because most of the people who drive those things are women in their 50's, and it was actually pretty quick. But my new wagon is awesome!
