On the one hand, It gets great fuel mileage.


On the other, it doesn't fit in the garage.


Gets great gas mileage

I love your new car, I've been thinking about picking one up ever since they came out. Has to be a manual shift though. Wouldn't give up my XF, just add it to the collection.lol

Well neither new nor a sportscar but acquired the Crossfire's parent, an '01 SLK320.

I thought the Subaru version only came with a 6-speed manual. Didn't know the Toyota Scion version was available with an automatic. At a Cars & Coffee GTG a few months back, a red, tricked-out Toyota Scion FRS pulled into the space next to our XFire. Car was really sharp looking. The Toyota was, too.

Yeah and they're only 1/10th of a sec. slower (in the 1/4 mile) than the NA Crossfire. Even though they have an NA 4 cylinder. The handling is supposed to be fantastic (with better tires). Supposedly they come standard with the same tires that come on the Prius.

She may not be a true Sports car....but she sure is fun to drive. This is my little Fiat Abarth 5spd Turbo with 170 HP. A little over 15k miles later and still a hoot to drive. Kind of like a go cart on steroids, this is when we had just gotten delivery off the truck.

After searching for this particular model Viper, I found / bought this 2005 Copperhead Viper (#297 of 300) with only 1860 miles on the clock. Got it about a year ago . . .

Well, I'm trying to drive a different car every 6 months until I get bored with it. Here's what I'm driving now besides the Crossfire:

Ford Focus ST - Stage 3 - ST3



Mercedes SLK55 AMG - Renntech Supercharged
