I need something that's either new or with low miles. I put alot of miles on a car.

You haven't taken me out to lunch yet!

I was in a nice Volvo last month. Whenever I blast out to NY to see Spawn I usually rent a car for the ride. Much better to put the thousand miles on someone elses car for the short money it costs. I don't remember the model but I was very impressed witht what a nice ride it was.

That was it, the S80. Very nice ride.

I was only busting you about the lunch thing. You missed a good time last week, we brewed my 888, Chris brewed 10 gallons of a strawberry blonde and then I did 5 gallons of a mild from the spend grains from the 888. And we drank a lot of Chris's beer.

here you go;
http://www.cplracing.co.uk/htmlarea/...shed%20002.jpg
lightweight( 1000lbs), used in the $40's(maybe), civic engine(supercharged) so good mileage, 0-60 in 2.7 seconds flat, no trunk so you never have to pick up groceries, the perfect car.....for me at least.

Well the first question is what about another Nissan? I would recommend the new Altima with the 3.5 VQ engine. Its fast (same engine as 350Z), attractive (if you like Carlos Ghosn's styling which I do) and has pretty nice comforts as well. If you want to step it up a bit, go with an Infiniti G35, same engine, just much classier.

If you want something different, I would recommend either the new accord (which I think has some of the nicest lines in a sedan I have ever seen!) or the new Malibu. Now personally I have a lot of bad things to say about GM, but everything I have read about the new Malibu is that it is the best thing to come out of Detroit since the first Corvette! It just won car of the year from Motor Trend as well.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask anymore questions! When Im not posing as a homebrewer, I also spend time as a car nut

Well since its a japanese car you should clearly drive it for another 2,000,000,000,000 miles as they can easily go that long. just ask any die hard foreign car driver.

i know i know. tell me how they are completely assembled here in the US.
