Japanese cars are my way to go. Fast, Fuel efficient, Easy to modify and cheap to buy and run.

Feels cheap too.

Wolffe, youre right about the muscle cars, they are simply awesome, but the sad part is that the recent ones done seem to match the style and panache of the early ones like the 67 stangs ...man what a car, and what build....menacing is the word!!\
Germans and Italians make the uber cool sophisticated supercars of today, in re 911/M3/LP640/Scuderia and so on. But muscle cars have a different appeal altogether!

Honestly, I would be more than happy if I get hold of a 3.0 V6 Accord, at least I will not get a heart attack every time I see her service bills. This for me is the best driverís car, the car I prefer, and I guess the one I can afford, mmm well I am not too sure if I can afford one right now.

Fuel Efficiency, I would use her judiciously. Yes, I must admit, Ground Clearance can still be an issue.

May be use public transport during the peak hours and take her out at nights. Just to save on precious petrol, 70 bucks a liter (speed 97 here in BLR)

May be with a Laura like DSG or better still if Honda can make a manual 6 speed with really tall 6th gear, something like 1500RPM @ 150 KMPH in 6th gear.
Anyways the wish list is endless, .and I am sure this is asking for tooooo much.

Wonder why Indian (Tata) and Italian (Fiat, Ferrari) is not on list?

Anyhow just voted for Jap from available options - more VFM and features in general.
