Going sporty at 41

Asked by Cathy Wood

AT AGE 41 I am interested in buying my first sports car. I like the Toyota Supra. Others I will consider are a Skyline, Prelude, Celica, a BMW or a Subaru. Yes, I would like to impress and I have waited years for an eye-catching car. My range is $25,000 to $30,000.

WHEN you say Supra and Skyline, I take it you mean imported models rather than the older models sold here when new. If so, I recommend you don't buy either of these unless you are car-minded and have a friendly mechanic who can fix them if they break down. Go for a Prelude or Celica -- both are stylish coupes, well built, making the sort of statement you want. If you want a real sports car then you can't go past a Mazda MX5.
