A recreational car purchase: test drove a 2016 Mustang GT
It was low on frilly options and had cloth seats but had some performance goodies added (I.e. Bembo brakes and graded rubber).

Was cheaper than expected at $31k.....$35 msrp

Salesman was pushing the Saleen but at $63k, waaaayyyy out of ball park. Still, that is a damn 700HP fire breather. Impressive.

What else are good thoughts on a "toy" car in the 35k range?

How trashy did you feel when you stepped out of it?

1) Buy piece of shite Miata
2) Stuff LSX into piece of shite Miata
3) Enjoy your stupidly large grin

Honestly, I get the stigma in years past, but it was a damn fun car to drive and feels quality. I've considered a later model Shelby (esp the 2013), but they are cost prohibitive for used.

On no...... 460HP 5.0

Also figured a supercharger upgrade later. $7k and up to 575-600hp

Think there is future fun in mods......

Man, we are only here for a little bit. If you have the discretionary funds, have fun.

I would check out the manual Camaro too, but I think Ford has a better interior than GM in the pony-car wars.

Best interior goes to the 15+ challenger and charger. You can get into a R/T scat pack with the 6.4L hemi (485/470) for 38ish.

If it is purely recreational get a Polaris Slingshot. Its around 20k and while I haven't driven one I did ride in one and HOLY shite was it fun. Not as fast as the GT but feels much faster.
