Wouldn't be averse to going old school.


I would rather the Continental Town Car...the one you posted was the Town Coupe. But it's still a great car either way...

How about a Mercedes E Class? If I was poor that is what I would drive.

Great cars to drive, awesome handling, great design. TERRIBLE ride. If you can put up with a really rough ride, it's definitely worth looking into. The G35 is a good alternative also, a few more creature comforts, better ride, but handling isn't as good as a Z.

I have been driving a lifted truck for the last 5 years...i am amazingly tired of dealing with bouncing all over the place. That said, i can clearly deal with not having a backseat (since what i have isn't useable), no longer need to tow anything, and would LOVE to have some truck area!
I looked at the G35 purely for the backseat, but i cant see the premium being worth it.

Im kind of minimalist and am mainly buying based on RWD, 6 gears, price, >4 cylinders, handling, and maintenance cost....so im having a hard time passing the car up.

Not sure if you're being serious or not (your edmorel so probably not) but you can get a CPO E500 still within MB's 5/50 warranty for within OP's budget. I've seen some E55s kissing the top end of the budget as well. Just do your research on the car and make sure you get any issues taken care of while under warranty. MB reliablility issues have all been mostly address...stay away from 03-04 MY of the E. I am happily small timing it in my 2005 model year E

CTS-V. Give it a try. Here's one, but you can get them in the low 20's.

This is also on my shortlist, along with the GTO.
