other preowned cars?

Hey guys I was thinking maybe the new camaro is a bit pricey for me right now as I'm between full-time jobs, but still making "ok" money from a part-time job and unemployment. Anyway I was looking up an 06 charger srt-8 a local dealer has for 23k, then I found a more reasonable 07 charger r/t for 18k with very low miles, but I don't like the interior of them from the pics. The same dealer that has the r/t also has an 07 audi 2.0t with 19k miles for 19k and an 08 shelby gt with 37k miles for 22k. But what really caught my eye was an 05 crossfire srt-6 with nav and heated seats with only 6k miles on it which retails for 23k (45k new) and they want 17k for it. I might go look at it. I know its 4 years old, but is practically new and they only made the supercharged version for 2 years. It has 330hp and does 0-60 in about 5 sec., but only came in auto and is a 2 seater, but that's all I need right now. It looks pretty sharp in light blue except for maybe the big silver strip that surrounds the front window. What do you guys think? Any other sporty slightly used cars I should consider for 20k or under? I think the main problem may be to get extended financing with a low rate on a car several years old.

Anybody? I just checked on the crossfire again and notice it says the ebay sale ends tomorrow night. The reserve is not met yet though, its at 15k and change so I'm not if it will sell if not met or not. I wish I could see it up close as it looks like its a good 3 hour drive and I have to work tonight and sleep in the morning. I guess I could make an offer on it before then. I don't know, the color is ok, but there is a black one down the street I just looked at with red interior which is really sharp and I would'nt hesitate if it was that color combo, but that particular one is the non-supercharged model with a lot of miles on it. Its probably not the best time for me either, but it sounds like a good deal.

If your looking for a "cheap" car, look at a 350Z, they have terrible resale after 2-3 years compaired to cost when new. You can find them here for around $15k and they are fun to drive and easy to mod. That should get you through until the Camaro fits the budget.
