After my '70 Pontiac GTO that may or may not have been involved with the temporary short term misplacement of a license...I would get a black 1983-84 VW Rabbit GTI with blue interior. It was my first "cool" car (at least to me). I thrashed that car for >300,000 miles in my youth. Many (4-5?) sets of front CV joints, 2 or 3 exhaust systems. Still miss that car.
It was a high performance beast - a whopping 91 HP! Another factor is that it is probably the only other vehicle I could add that would get easy spousal approval. The car I had when we started dating. She was surprised when I showed up to our first date in a little GTI with the hatch filled with 10 soccer balls. She figured me more as an SUV guy.I gotta be honest boys, I don't think a mid 80's VW Rabbit is gonna make the short list for my next car .
Same! Had my GTi when I met my wife in law school. For our first date, I actually borrowed my dad's red 1987 535is. The first thing she asked after she got in was, "Do you have a lot of problems with this car?" Apparently she had a relative that was complaining about German built cars, well, specifically BMWs. LOL.Another factor is that it is probably the only other vehicle I could add that would get easy spousal approval. The car I had when we started dating.
Things have a way of working out for the best in the long run. I don't mean that as a dig. But sometimes things work out the way they are meant to in the world of cars.Had it not been already sale pending, I would own it today and would very likely not own my awesome '05 GT
I had the same exact car! Loved it! That car made me really good at left foot braking to induce oversteer!One of my favorites, too. I had that exact same car, bought it new, then I put on a Callaway turbo kit. What a fun sleeper.
Wish I had bid on the nice silver NSX that sold on BaT a couple months ago. So I guess I'm kinda looking for that car's twin.

I thought Vipers were notorious for shitty interior finish. That looks very nice.Viper is the only other one on my mind (if somebody already suggested that, sorry). This is the one I wanted but it was already Sale Pending when I found it https://www.bjmotors.biz/2014-dodge-viper-gts-c-13616.htm
I've never even been in one but I've read that the early ones were pretty junky but they got better over the years to where the last few years were decent, maybe still not great though.I thought Vipers were notorious for shitty interior finish. That looks very nice.
