I need some opinions on adding a second car to the family. I want a car for me, one that I can take out on the weekends and wring out a little, one I can play around with a little, show off a little, one that will not explode itself or my bank account.

From time to time, I've looked at various VW GTIs, some old, dead Camaros, Corvettes, Mercedes Benz SLs and Porsches from the 1970s and 1980s and even a DeLorean or two.

I don't need this car. It's just for fun and now and then taking me to work if our "real" car is in the shop or something. I'm just looking for something that's hugely fun and hardly expensive at all. So, what's the best bargain out there, factoring in all of the various expenses like fuel economy, depreciation or collectibility, insurance, parts and service and so on?

-MH-
