    I'll stick with my Infinity G35x 2005, I got it new last year as my first car out of college and with a real job. I love it, AWD + Turbo = fun.

    I drive a 1995 Nissan Altima GXE. It's my first car, from my dad. I have since replaced the stock audio system to an Alpine head unit (w/mp3), Alpine amp, Boston Acoustics sub and speakers. Also added: spoiler/tint/alarm/fog lights/alloys. No engine mods.

    boring, I know...

    I drive a 2002 Ford Taurus, about the most ordinary car you can own...

    My wife has a 2002 Ford Explorer V8 that we like much better, though it doesn't quite have the mileage...

    I have been bit by "Mustang Fever" lately, so will probably get a Mustang GT (300BHP), if I can convice my wife that it is a practical buy. I just drove a friends 2003 Mustang Cobra (390BHP supercharged 4.6L V8), man is that a monster!!! I think my internal organs are still picking themselves up off the back of my ribcage...
