Jesus. The direction this thread has moved proves to me the limited number of vehicles that meet what i'm looking for. That is one sweet ride.

one word Corvette - you would not believe what you can get one for used and bonus about them is typically if you buy in the south is you can get one with lower miles and owned by generally the mature crowd

or get a Buick Regal GS - I traded my RS to one the other day and I have had a ball all week in the thing. SLEEPER

I vote G8 GT, can get them fairly cheap, decent mileage, comfy and sporty. I would have bought that, but only need one "family" car when we are all riding somewhere longer than ten minutes. Also consider Charger, new accords (light and 280 horses, fun but not camaro fun), Mazda 6 sedan or Mazda 3. CTS-V would be badass, but the ones with the LFA aren't under $30k yet and gas guzzle.

We have an 8 month old baby. My wife drives a Honda Pilot (really awesome family car IMO) and the Camaro. I pick up the kiddo from daycare every day in the Camaro. Throw the car seat in the back with a base no problem and yesterday hit the mall afterwards and fit our full sized Graco stroller in the trunk.

So really I don't NEED to change anything right now. The only considerations really are 1) I've had no real problems or worries in the winter yet, especially with my winter tires. But it becomes a bigger consideration when I'm thinking of driving around my child. and 2) eventually we may have another child and then I just couldn't swing it.

What is out there that looks good, has 300hp, and is in a reasonable price range? Does that even exist?
Infiniti G37 Sedan.
2014 SS Sedan
2014 Impala

this! I really hate the front of the newer models.. thumbs up for everything else...

i'd go impala, ATS or sti.. i'd have to take a hard look at the magnum.. i really don't like station wagon looks, but they do a good job on it..

i wish they had more power in the malibus.. people look at me weird when i say i like the Malibu styling over the impala

When is the "Chevrolet SS" supposed to be here? That's going to fit this bill pretty well I'd imagine. I have heard outrageous pricing on that thing tho. (base starting at $45k)
