I drive a 2006 Kia Spectra.  It has a wimpy engine, inefficient drivetrain, horrible resale value, and uncomfortable seats.  I'm thinking of having a small turbo installed. 

Other than that, it is a relatively attractive car with a great warranty and low price, and it drives just like my 1992 Toyota Camry.


For people who care about such things, it is silver.

When starting it, do ya pop the hood and yank the starter cord?   :tongue:

*runs*

No, but I do have to wake up the mice.  :(

My wife's car.

What IS that?  It looks like a Buick version of a Corvette.

It's a '54 Plymouth Belmont.  They have always fascinated me.  It was a concept car which actually went into limited production.  

I could die a happy man if that really was my wife's car.

I'm thinking about getting one of these, although I can't decide what color yet.
