Options Options - its doing my head in!

Within the next year I'm due to inherit enough cash to replace my 33GTR but the question is with what? I Can't make my mind up, each car on the list has its good and bad points. So with the sale of my 33 I'd have between £25 - £28 to spend on my passion for GT cars.

I would be torn between a modded R34 and a RX-7. It really depends what you want to do with it. Both cars are great when set up properly, but I am biased as I went from a 33 to 34. The RX-7 is a great car, but I have really only been out in one, Miguel's. That is a great fast car that is tuned perfectly and handles like no other. Tough decision though.

R34 every time. The only other car on the list that i would consider would be a 350z with a twin turbo conversion. I had a passenger ride in one around the Anglesey track and was very impressed.

I know car prices have dropped, but under £30 is crazy!!
Voted for a Gtr 34 or you could look at a Noble for £28k.

Well, you have your 33 FS. If it sells in the meantime, get a 34. If it doesn't sell, spend the moolah on the 33.

What you don't want to do, in my opinion, is drop the price on the 33 just to get rid - it's a nice car.

Cheers Guys - I've always dreamed of owning a 34 but never thought I would be able to, the 33 was always a compromise. Trouble is my 33 is a stonking good car, utterly reliable, real road presence and with £15k to spend on a new engine/rebuild, respray and tidying up bits and bobs etc then it could be an amazing car.

The Rx7 idea won't go away but the youngest car would be 10 years old and I know FA about Rex's

Did I put a Z4 in, what was I thinking? It looks like the car thieves have been in a nicked all the toys before it left the show room. Stingy bloody Germans

The 350Z is tempting from the point of view of owning a newer car and not having to check I've got my breakdown recovery docs every time I go out - Paranoid! Me! maybe.

So what do I want from a car?

1 A car that will take me and a mate across Europe for the sheer hell of it - A GT car.

2 A car that my missus won't moan about feeling sick in when we go away for a weekend of pomp and circumstance - (why the Elise wasn't on there)

3 A car intimidating enough in the rear view mirror to make those right hand lane road hogs pull over and let me through. The 33 is a rather good for that on the M6
