      I've been in love with these since I first saw one in ~93 when I was like 8 years old. One day I'll have one. I don't need anything fancy. Exotic cars are fun, but I would smile everyday seeing this in the garage (even when its broken!).

      its called 'the sickness' in my family.

      THinking about what car to get next is the preferred way to pass my commuting time.

      im still going through a bucket list which i expected to churn through something every 2 years.
      2 of the cars have really been great and have stuck around alot longer than i would have thought

      a gt3 rs4.0 or f360/f430 would fill the toy category, but imagine it would get dull over time (just a lot longer than a camry).

      I know it's no exotic but this car is almost as close to perfect for me as possible.

      I've wanted one since I was 12, bought 2 at fifteen to get 1 ready for when I got my license but many circumstances beyond my control forced it to go back to a dream rather than becoming reality. Still lusting, looking, saving and planning.

      A 356, classic 911, Ferrari 328, or classic BMW would also work if the option were there.

      While I agree with the first post I have to remind myself that i'm a homeowner and need seating for at least 4 so the vehicle for me would be. . .



      It is pretty quick/fast, AWD and you could pull a small utility trailer if you needed to!

      After a while I would stuff a 5.3 into it!

      Like a previous poster said, this will not get rid of the fever, but i'll be damned if it doesn't reduce it.
      I had a funny signature before, and it went to waste with the switch!

      My e46 m3 manual. I'm satisfied. Plan to keep it for long long time...maybe until I can afford 911 (which won't happen soon, maybe 10 years from now).

      This is what did it for me. I've had my E30 M3 for about 5 years now. It's completely erased the urge for something else since I got it. Surprising since typically I get the fever at the 6 month mark without fail. I still get a tingle just walking into my garage even after 5 years.



      Lots of reasons - probably number one is almost never seeing another one on the road. It's a great conversation starter with other car enthusiasts(pulls em out of a crowd), I've met some fantastic people as a result of owning it. Another is zero depreciation, actually solid appreciation- an actual example of an automotive investment (a first for me).

      The only other car I've owned that had the same exact effect was my old 911SC I was shopping for an E30 M3 when I stumbled into it and bought it instead.

      I don't think such a car exists, but I'd love it if somebody gave me a Viper.

      You know, for research purposes.

      Looking for a ratty Miata? My '90 is for sale.

      Is this question some sort of pass fail? I can't go 6 months...with anything.

      I think I could enjoy any utilitarian vehicle for a long time though. Fun car has to rotate in and out. If I had a small boat I'd be happy with an older Explorer 5.0 for a number of years.

      Sorry, but either you have the heart to pick the right car the first time, or you don't. And after you have the right car, either you're the type to stick with it because you're constantly aware of why you picked it, or you get easily distracted by something shiny.

      IE.. I want someone to do research about guys who hold onto cars are more likely to hold onto their wives.

      Honestly, I can't say that I really want anything else than what I have right now. I keep coming back to how much fun my 2.0 Golf is to drive. It's an '01, all base-modely and whatnot, but it's fun. Every little thing makes the car more fun to drive, and it's a comfortable ride, but looks rather aggressive for what it is, and it can definitely take just about anything I throw at it. There are definitely better/faster/cooler/more desirable cars out there, but nothing's ever quite caught my heart like the good old 2.slow.

      I will fully and easily admit that there is no such single beast that would ever quench my automotive thirst.

      Perhaps if I could be promised a half a dozen or so cars to get switched out over the course of my life I could be happy... but I would have to wait and fill some of those slots when cars that are not yet in production come out.

      you're such a failboat, its one of those threads where you get to post picture of a fun car and everyone else sits back and enjoy a beer while scrolling through the pictures

      and what the **** is a vorax? sounds like an intestinal infection.
