    Wouldn't you know it, they all dried up around here. I hope your move to Raleigh went smoothly.

    if the one in Vegas was closer OR a stick... it might be a good starting point. red would actually be low on my personal preference list too. so i think the trifecta knocks that one out for me. for that price, it would have to be exactly what i want, and an easy road trip away. thanks steve... actually ~ we're STILL splitting our time working in PA and renovating in NC, so the move is still in progress. hoping to make to actual transition next summer... pending decent employment x2 in NC.

    four kids... one wife. (thankfully only one). seat math: one 240z + one S30 2+2 and everyone can get... wherever... without putting the key in the ignition of the armada. basically a toy car for the wife, just one that keeps us from having to exclude any small people on z-days.

    Julio, I tried to tell Rob before that the luggage straps could be utilized for extra passengers, but he won't listen to reason.

    wellll... i just used half (or more) of the ca$h i could have bought another z with to pay off what was left on the loan on my armada... so i MAY still be interested, but now i'm not only looking for a pretty specific car ~ but also for a bargain.

    You could also diversify your family's toys. For instance, how about an old (e.g. '70's) Toyota Land Cruiser?
    My last three sports cars while I still owned all three:

    2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i soft/hard top (sold)

    we've had some pretty eclectic and diversified toys and tools... but actually seem to be growing more nissan centric rather than less. we just sold a supra last year that complimented the z and accomplished the 6 total seats requirement. over the last decade my wife has moved through a small collection of german sedans to end up with a q45. in the same span, my jeeps have become an armada, and now her preference to fill the space left by the supra is either a Z with 4 seats or an old school Japanese station wagon. neither seem to be all that easy to come by right now... but i figure the car we're supposed to meet will show up in time. we looked at a late 300zx 2+2 over the weekend that i thought would interest her more than me. turned out i actually liked it better than she did, but not a must have. still lookin'.
