GSX or TSI all the way, All wheel drive turbo is where is at. Bolt on a big 16g turbo and a little more fuel you can put down a well over 300 Hp easy. Even if you want to go bigger the drive train can handle almost 500 stock.
I use to blow away GTs and Civics all the time with my lightly moded GST.

Ok, I've owned Trans Ams, Z 28's and Mustangs. If you are looking for "bang for the buck" it's the Mustang. Camaro's and Trans Ams are much better "cruizers" because mine rode really nice. The Mustang was smaller, handled a lot tighter and with very little effort it would run like a scalded dog. It really just depends on if you are looking for comfort, or if your looking for something that handles good and is easily tuned for performance. Hey, just watch Pinks All Out. Compare the amount of mid 90's TA's and Camaro's to Mustangs. You really can't go wrong with any of them though.
Don't go buy a sports car and then get the V6!! C'mon, be a fricken American, buy the V8!!

If you get a mustang, my preference would be a Fox body from the late 80's. For the Camaro's, I would get the 3rd gen I-ROC Z or the 5.7 v-8 Z28. These will be cheap, parts are abundant and they can be made fast... and I'm partial to the sharp corners and angles of the 80's cars.
Are you sure on that... cause I have always heard that Suberu was and Austrlain company
Heheh. I work at the Subaru assembly plant in Lafayette, Indiana. Definitely Japanese owned. I assume you make the Australian connection because of the Outback model we build, and the fact they used Crocodile Dundee for their advertising awhile back. I always laugh at the fact it's a Japanese auto, built in America, with an Australian name...
Subie's are great cars, very reliable, and they have won Sport/Utility of the Year from Motortrend 2 years in a row ('09 Forester, '10 Outback), and obviously the WRX is a mean machine. If you can find a good used Subie, it'll do you right.
