I'll probably be getting another one next year. Too much going on this fall!

Believe it or not, a super low miles Swift/Metro/Firefly 5-speed comes up for sale every couple of months. I'll nab one for next winter. Low miles automatics come up about twice as often... but then I'd have to do a trans swap.

Dirtydave: I'd jump at a 1st gen Prius too for that kind of money. It's great nerdy fun driving the Toyota style hybrid systems.
