I'm well aware of the 944's problems. However any of the 'enthusiast' selections can easily get you negative very quickly if something goes wrong. Hence why they're enthusiast selections. And uh, the water pump on a 944 isn't really a 'small repair.' If it goes bad on you...

So my old Volvo 740 decided to become a gross polluter and the Imperial Republik of Kalifornia will be coughing out a grand if I take it off the road. So thats sort of a no brainer. And my 94 540i got rear-ended while it was parked while I was out in Vegas and it is most likely a complete total. So I'm looking for a cheap, 'cool', old car with some reliability.
