    The Tacoma is almost paid and looking for sportier 2nd car to drive.

    If you had 20 k to spend on 2nd car what would you go with ?

    Still would drive Tacoma daily so it doesn't need to be practical.

    the tacoma is probably luxurious enough for you, I'd go for something that can get you excited, I'm talking about an old mustang or camaro! so much fun to drive!

    I would try to find a nice mustang (sn95 or new edge) for under 10,000 and sink the rest in the motor. But thats just what I would do.

    If you are looking for something sporty, and luxurious at the same time, without going with an older model car (cause classics don't make daily drivers or its not that classic) then i would recommend a nissan 350z. At 20k you can get a grand touring with low miles. I hate to say it but 20k goes so much farther in the car world. Brembo brakes, 19" tire and rims. 28 mpg hwy @80 with over 300 hp on tap. Shit, anyone wanna buy my taco?

    Some of the imports mentioned are fun cars (i had an '06 350Z) but once you feel the torque of a V8 you'll never want anything else!
