    eclipse gsx? awd for snow+turbo and can be had for around 7500 bucks, similar size to your celica also and great aftermarket.

    Eclipse is a really cool car until it explodes. Maybe something more reliable should be in your future? :x:

    I got lots of things you could think about:

    a 1999 2.5RS would cost you about $10k i think.
    not particularly fast, but a good car.

    an integra GSR is sorta ricey, but nonetheless a great car.

    Acura legend is a decent buy too IMO

    Audi A4 could be picked up for under $10k. (late model)

    kind of a weird idea, but you could pick up a Mazda Millenia S which is a 2.3 liter Supercharged engine. I think it doesnt have a very efficient automatic tranny though, and doesnt come in 5spd.

    A N/A 300zx would also be a decent car.

    you could pick up an earlier 90s supra ('current' look model) for under 10k, but i dont know how it would hold up.

    Hope that maybe opened a few options, i dont know if u like MT or AT, and i also didnt include domestics. have fun

    The RS is a great year-round car. It may not be all that fast at first, but there is a large amount of aftermarket products that'll make those things haul ass :bigthumb:

    GSX is reliable. just dont treat it like shit... how about 2.5rs subie? older audi? eclipse gs-T? and to the guy who posted two above me, he said he doesnt want rwd, which the supra and the 300zx both are.

    Nothing over $10,000? :?

    Try a Lexus SC400. They've got a sophisticated V8, or maybe get a SC300 and turbo it?

    (Personally I've got the 1JZ-GTE Twin Turbo version from Japan)

    5th gen Celica Alltrac. I love mine. AWD plus turbo equals sweetness. Not to mention its Toyota.
