Top 10.

I don't think many of you know this, but I am a car nut. Maybe nut isn't the right word? How about junkie? I've had a Motor Trend subscription for nearly 13 years. I get Road & Track, Car Craft, Automobile, and Hot Rod every month. I frequent TTAC.com and Jalopnik.com daily. I had a Car and Driver subscription in the early 90's but even then they sucked. I think Top Gear is the greatest motor show EVER! Even though Jeremy Clarkson is an ego-maniacal blow-hole.

With that in mind, I'm going to share my current top 10 automobiles. Affordable and otherwise. Mostly otherwise. :-)

10) MazdaSpeed 3

I think I've written enough on this car. I'm seriously considering this car.

9) Subaru Impreza

Not this particular model. Not even the sedan. This is such a limited production model I couldn't find any good quality photo's of it. Here is a very close one. Yes it too is a wagon. (shaddup fair!) It is cheaper than the Mazda, but I have NEVER seen one.

8)Caterham 7

Everyone needs a 1100lbs, 150hp car.

7) TVR Cerbera Speed-6

A very beautiful and amazing car. To bad it is TOTAL CRAP!

6) Lotus Elise

A Japanese powered, British spots car. They got everything right.

5) Hummer H1

The H2 and H3 are FAKES! This is the greatest beast ever to be parked in front of your local Star-bucks.

4) Ferrari 575 Maranello

The best looking Ferrari GT car EVER!

3) 1969 Chevrolet Camaro

This is some Reggie Jackson version that doesn't look all bad. You really can't screw up the look of that car.

2) BMW M Coupe

Tires fatter than your ass, 300hp, and weights 3 ounces....

1) BMW M5 Touring

:-() 500hp, V-10, 7 speed semi-auto and a wagon?!?! SWEET!

I do have one honorable mention.

The Holden Ute

Why don't they sale these in the states?

The #10 and #9 are serious considerations (after I get out of school). Four wagons, three British sports cars, a tank Truck, a GT car and a muscle car. Did I leave anything out? Questions?
