For under 60k USD the new corvette looks amazing.  But then I remember that’s 1/3 of the value of my house.  images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTyYx8Qqg5If0N2jnHto9M

Or come to the UK and the few i've seen up for sale at £130,000 plus. But i do think they look sexy as hell.

Are they still made from plastic these days? A mate had one in the 70’s/80’s and it was plastic.

Get yourself a Porsche Carrera 4s 997 , sensible money used , and for us 50 something it will make you feel like your hairs grown back. 

Great cars so long as you buy the second generation, 997.2. dfi engine with none of the problems of the 996  & 997.1 can suffer.

They are a very nice drive and quick enough to be fun without getting silly.

I think around 78 they made bumbers or of polymer but they core panels has always been fiberglass.

Even at that price it’s a bargain for the horsepower.

The 997 is the prettiest porsche in my opinion. I given the price jump to a 997.2 I wouldn't be scared off the earlier engine from all the scary stuff written about them. Most will have had the IMS bearing sorted now.

Surprised at how many have not been changed. 

To my eye the 964 is best looker, the 997.2 is a good looking Porsche with the led lights it's a little more modern looking.  If a 997.1 in GT3 or turbo spec no ims or bore scoring issues being a Mezger engine.
