Don't forget, I am on record that it will not be a GM product this time. So take your best guess, and try to nail the model year while you're at it!

I voted 2011 Challenger.

I voted Challenger because Ford is not going to bring a Falcon UTE over and I voted 2011 because thats when I predict the economy will return

I'd say that the odds are certainly in your favor from what I can see right now.

2011 Mini

I got to ride in a Cooper S today, it was a quick, but spirited ride. The guy driving had the biggest grin I've ever seen. You know you want to.

Wow before reading your post Olds I voted the same exact way. :blink:

I voted Challenger because of the cars listed that has continually got your attention, and fits the bill very nicely of being a lower volume, 2-door, V8 powered vehicle. I put 2011 because I recall you saying you weren't going to buy anything new for at least a little while.

As well, I believe the A5 is FWD based isn't it? I would think that would rule the car out for you despite it's great looks, plus its higher price tag. You mentioned BMW coupes, at least the new ones, aren't your thing.

My runner-up would be the F-150 or the Ram, as they can meet all your requirements: 2 doors, open bed, V8, RWD (and they are BOF if such a thing matters to you as much as some others). However, you own a truck already, so I was leaning more towards a car.

You know I put that poll choice in there just for you.

:lol:

EDIT: I have driven an S, and it was fun. I'll just leave it there.

Well thought out, but there are definitely some wild cards in there to consider. For example, I am toying with the idea of dumping my Silverado.

As for BOF construction, it matters to me when it comes to certain vehicles but not others.

Fine, I'll add an asterisk to my vote. Once the economy rebounds and you're sitting on piles of money, after you buy a Challenger, you'll pick up a Cooper S, to be a different kind of toy.

I'll add that I don't think you'll cave on your boycott of new GM vehicles.

There is very little that could change my mind on that...

Go find yourself a good douchebag lawyer, then sue GM for saying you'll be able to buy a G8 ST, take a huge chunk of money, then buy a Challenger and a Mini.

I'd be willing to settle for all of the ST development and show cars...

I hope that lots of votes for the Challenger don't somehow sway you away from it....

I doubt that would be a factor, but there are a ton of other variables.

I voted other, as I believe you will come to your senses and realise you can have Pontiac Excitement! with the incredible 2010 G3. After gas prices go to $5 this summer, it will be the rational choice.
