All neat cars but most are just seen as daily transportation. The MR2 suffers as it should have had a different name as it will always be compared to the second gen that was a better car. That is accept for the $7 Hose from hell that needs the engine pulled to be replaced about every 80K miles. Not a shining example of engineering from Toyota. Most at least change timing belts and water pump then too if the car condition is worth the labor.
I'm not oblivious to the sarcasm, but I would jump on a deal in my area for clean, not rusted to swiss-cheese stick shift Alero. Last of the Oldsmobiles, as worthy as the Cutlass name (which it didn't get) or more than several generations that proceeded it.
These things refused to die around here (but usually looked awful with rust).
I had a Stratus once, it was fine but I don't need to relive that. Friends had an Accent and it was terrible... but then was there anything cheaper one could buy? (So don't expect greatness...)
