    What kind of car do you drive?

    Tell everyone what kind of car you drive.

    I drive a 1999 Ford Mustang GT Convertable.

    So shop around and check the insurance for the cars you like. Chances are, especially when you start looking into "performance" cars, the insurance will be similar across the board. The insurance companies know which cars are which based years worth of data.
    Im 24 with some speeding tickets and for insurance 500 ded. 100/300 living in Chicago it would be over $350/month.

    You guys can call me Schwinn mother ******* Armstrong because I'm getting one tomorrow. I've never been much of a bike rider, but I'm looking forward to biking more often once I get this bike.

    I figured it would be 1 or both of the latter since not a lot of people auto-x, and both of those cars rape from a roll or a drag.

I can't recommend buying a used turboed vehicle with a clean conscience either. You end up spending way too much money fixing them. If I buy another turboed vehicle it will be brand new, no exceptions.

    My suggestion is an LS2 GTO. They are incredibly fast for a stock car and once you start modding things get ridiculous. <333 the LS2 so much.

    **Edit** Oh, and they are pretty rare but if you can get a Terminator Cobra...If I had $20k to spend on a car that would be it.

    If you have a backseat, most insurance companies will allow you to call it a sedan. My Civic Coupe is listed as a sedan according to my insurance... even though the car is listed as "CIVIC COUPE" on my insurance form haha.

    The Evo VIII's have always been my favorite model.

    Yeah, they're pretty sweet and kinda heavy. They're sharp (in the physical sense) too.

    Those things are AWESOME!!! I loved working as a cashier and getting those. It felt pure exhilaration swiping them. They felt so substantial and awesome.
