fav car for 30k or less

I'm just curious to know what sort of car people here would buy for that much money. Be it new or used.

Anyway, I'll break the ice.

Either:

Sports: 2000/2001 MR2 Spyder with removable hardtop for approx 25k and spend the remaining 5k on manual conversion (only semi-auto in Aus) and insurance.

OR

Luxury: 1999/2000 Lexus IS200 Sports/Luxury 6 speed manual

Probably an EL Ghia 5.0, spend the extra 15k on go fast bits.

Failing that I'd dig up a 5 speed RHD DeLorean, although I think 30k would be pushing it.

DeLorean's came in RHD? If you find one make sure it has a flux capacetor :)

They're pretty rare cars. (www.delorean.com)
