Too much Suzukiclone in that list!!

If I could have any of those in mint condition, it'd be tough to decide between one of the CRX's or the VX. Best blend of frugal & fun to drive, with some style as a bonus.

Also! One of these things is not like the other!

The Mirage with CVT is the only automatic in the list. But in the real world, the Mirage CVT returns worse fuel economy than the 5-speed manual in the hands of anyone but an auto journalist / boy racer.

I'd love to see a list of the most fuel efficient convertibles/targa top cars.
