    your "little" bro...who is 15-16, has $15,000 to spend?

    and an LS1 is an engine, not an entire vehicle...but I'm sure you knew that :lawl:



    umm...Impreza?

    I would say s2000 but no 16 year old deserves a $15k car imo.

    you sure you want to let your little brother drive a fast car like that? and he doesn't care about handling? unless it's a drag strip handling should always be acknowledged and not over looked just because you want speed. there should at least be a bit of balance.

    anyway, a colbalt SS is a very good choice.

    I wouldn't sell a 16 year old a fast car that's worth over $5,000. That's asking for trouble.

    look, honestly, we're not being assholes...but we're just letting you know what's GOING to happen. not if or maybe, it will...think about it, you get him a reliable, good power, comfortable car and you won't have to worry as much as him in a turbo or supercharged car.

    this is just what i think.

    BUT, the colbalt SS isn't that fast of a car so that should be a good choice.
