If I didn't buy the Intrepid, other cars I like are the 300M, VW Jetta, Lexus ES 300 (yeah I know it's just a more stylish Camry... which is why I like it), the 2003 Accord, and probably a few more I can't think of right now.

The new Altima is pretty good looking too.

Realistically, a Mustang GT coupe or maybe an RX-8 (yeah, I know it's not out yet). Less realistically, a BMW 330Ci (damn student loans). And completely unrealistically, an M3 would be awesome.

I received my Intrepid for free, to be honest I hated the car, but it grew on me (the car was a 18th bday present)

I will be getting a 2004 Golf TDI soon, i certainly hope :)

I probably be driving around in anything else that can contain me. I'm a tall guy, I need a vechicle with lots of room. I would love a stratus but hell, no one would be able to sit in the backseat cause my seat would be back the whole way.

I almost kept my old POS taurus instead of buying my prelude (which i sold for double what i paid to buy the trep) and i was gonna buy my step father's ranger and trick it out and drive the taurus. I'd probably buy an SUV right now though, maybe a trailblazer, probably a lexus RX300 or an aviator.

My intrepid was free. If it wasnt for that i would probaly have looked for either an awd turbo talon or eclipse, two of my friends have those i love them. In my dreams there are a lot of cars i would have taken, m3, 300z, and then all those $$$ cars that will never happen. If the choice was now i'd get the wrx sti, lancer evo, something with a nice turbo in it and something that can be modified up.

Night, add better flowing heads, FULL true dual exhaust, and a hell of a big supercharger setup, and i'm sold on that idea, too. :) Maurader style. :)

Heh, but with the gas tank likely to want to explode in a rear end collision and burn me a live, I'll pass on them.

I'd like a twin turbo stealth, or 3000gt. :)

It came down to these cars in order:
2002 Honda Accord coupe 5-speed (bastards wouldn't give me a grad discount unlike every other car company that offers $1000 off otherwise right now I think I would be driving a fairly base model Honda)
2002 Dodge Dakota club cab V8.....not sure if I wanted the R/T due to the lack of a 5-speed :(
2002 Sebring coupe LXI, I really wanted a Stratus R/T coupe but they didn't and still don't sell them in Canada nor did they sell Mitsubishi's here.

In retrospect, the $6500 I spent on the Trep would have made a hell of an improvement to the 82 Caprice I could be running 12's or have a slammin system.

Seems obvious most of you guys have "outgrown" your Intrepids. I say that because most of you picked completely different vehicles to replace your Intrepid.
Intrepid to sports car or truck.
I have a couple "toy" cars and our LHS is our family hauler. Sometimes I entertain the idea of a minivan, 4 door pick up or SUV to replace the LHS but for the most part it will be another full size fwd car.
So answer is Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, Cadillac STS, Taurus SEL.

My old muscle will always be MOPAR!

When I ended up with the first trep (a leased 1998 base model) I was actually shopping for a Mercury Grand Marquis or Ford Crown Victoria. The idea was that I wanter a 'rolling living room'.

My wife refused to have a 'boat' in the driveway so we kept looking at the auto mall. We came across the newly remodeled trep and she liked it. Since I had already been in two friends' first-gen treps, I knew that they were great cars and went for it. The rest is history....

So instead answering with what I would like to be driving instead of my trep, my answer is that if I didn't end up with my first trep, I probably would be driving a Grand Marquis or a Crown Victoria...
