This particular Rabbit looks like it has a pretty nice body on it - it has been garaged for the last few years.

Granted - they aren't ideal in the aerodynamics department.

I am trying to find a car that is the balance of Cheap, Aerodynamic, Light, Cool-looking, Good Body. And must have a manual transmission.

I am not going to find something that fits all those requirements equally.

The Rabbit fits cheap, light, good body. Doesn't fit aerodynamic or cool.

A Miata would be cool, fairly light, aerodynamic, but not cheap and really wouldn't be practical for winter.

Other cars would be a mix of the above characteristics.
