Remember the the sports car industry between 1990-1995.... It was in its hey day as 300ZXs, 3000GT s, Supras, and RX7s populated our streets as thousands of them were sold. All those cars are since extinct, so I was wondering what types of cars those buyers are driving now.... I'm assuming Audi S4's, BMW M3's and Corvettes, and the rest decided to buy SUV's....
Eric...

maybe they're driving sports sedans now..

The Excursion is the one of the most ridiculous vehicles to drive the face of the earth.... What a waste in every sense of the word...

I agree, the Excursion is one wasteful piece of crap. Personally, I don't even see the need for an Expedition. Yet they're so popular.

How about a Hummer (er, you know what I mean - don't get excited O'Troll)?

I was following one the other day - it could barely climb a hill and could barely squeeze onto the road it was sooooo wide.

Also take into consideration all of the rich kids who got one of those cars. Six to seven years later they are out on their own making a living. Hmmmm, what's this? You mean to say that I don't automatically make 6 figures after graduation? What! I have to prove myself? But but but but someone on a message board told me that there are a bunch of rich kids that are students pretending to be programmers. They have like every color IS300 yoo!

Life's a bitch, then they settle for a much lesser car..

most ppl who drove them then still own them.
note the value of Supras and RX7s.
They aren't easy to find and when you do find them, they are pricey for a used car.
I spoke to a doctor who drives a cherry condition red RX7 and he says he loves it more than his porsches and uses it as a daily driver and is contemplating selling off one of his Porsches. 300zxs and 3000GTs aren't too hard to find and can be had for under 10gs...hmmm...

if the owner bought the car because of sports car hype then they'll probably be driving an SUV but if the person was after a true sports car then they're probably floating around driving an m3, m5, typer(i'm stretching it here), viper, z06, nsx, something like that

Speaking of which, what was everyon's first car ever owned -- not bought by parents, but bought or leased with own money?

My first car was a 1980 Chevy Chevette -- much like Tucker's car in There's Something About Mary.
