    Just never buy new! Never worth it! I say..whatever your budget is..how about a geo metro?! Bet youll love and respect your T/A more with that as your DD..lol Nothing like a sub 100 horsepower car to make you appreciate the qualities of american muscle..

    Yeah it's something you take for granted, even feels like some of the power is gone. You get back in your Trans Am and feel all powerful!

    Get a nice used grand prize GTP or GXP still some power and definitely more comfortable fo DD use. I drove a GXP and fell in love with even the exhaust note. Prices are dropping daily on those older cars since everyone rather have a GTO or G8. I personally don't mine the fed V8 GXP for a DD.

    +1 on the G8. Real nice car, 4 doors, no sacrifice in power. Faster than an A4, with close MPG.

    Sorry, no love from me. I can't stand a cheapie ecomomie car, I'd rather sacrifice some MPG for some FPG. (Fun Per Gallon)

    But as I've said, it is more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.

    Yeah, I love getting into my Bird after I've been driving my Jeep for a few days. Makes me appreciate the Bird so much more.
