    So my dad and I are sharing a 2011 tacoma and he has been using it most of the time so he decided he would buy me a used coupe and when I needs the tacoma he would let me use it. $15000 is the budget so I was thinking a 2004 350z manual but I'm still thinking, can you guys help me out?

    Must be nice. My dad bought me a $800 Honda Accord hatchback when I was 17...... Kids these days:eek:

    If anything I would stick to Toyota's. Nissan's don't hold value for as long as a Toyota. But it's your dads money so do what you want with it.

    Not sure why you'd want a coupe at 17... between the gas prices and insurance prices...

    A coupe for approx $15k... Hmm... I know if I had 15k laying around to buy a car, I would look very heavily into a C5 corvette. But that's just me.

    I wouldn't buy a C5, I think it's just for looks compared to my uncles Z06

    You have a 15k budget. A c5 Z06 is damn fast I assure you. But to each their own... In my opinion the best cars you're going to find will be: 350z, c5 corvette, newer mustang gt, Infinity g35. And I don't know how hung up on the coupe idea, but I have seen Subaru Impreza WRX and G8 GT go for that kind of money.

    The subaru wrx was my first option but since I'm sharing 4x4 trucks with my dad, he wants me to get a rwd car

    Just to clear this up for you, not a single car you mentioned (except for the Corvette) is a muscle car. :cool:

    Go with the 350Z... you know you want to! haha IMO they're sweet cars. I'm actually thinkin of getting rid of the wife's Camry and gettin a 350Z cuz we have no kids so why not?

    Edit: Did you really just say u consider a 350z to be a muscle car? hahaha dude no way. if it doesn't have a V8 (or in the rare case of the Dodge Viper a V10) it's not a muscle car.
