Never let go

So after the sixth ex-s2000 owner randomly introduced themselves and insisted that I never sell I have decide to make my Honda a forever car. I am 35 and love the S. I love the pedal placement, I love the noise it makes when I downshift a little too early, and of course I love the sound at our breaking point. However sometimes I miss that exciting but sometimes annoying, when you're really hungover, roar of a v8 that I've experienced in the past. What are your suggestions for a fun to drive v8, but stupid cheap recreational vehicles?

Get something modified but not outrageous. Even a 30 something Ford that is not show quality but still fun to drive and you can hear the V8.

That's why I kept my 96 Mustang Cobra. The S2000 and Cobra have different personalities and both are fun for different reasons to me. The Cobra can't hold a candle to the handling of the S2000 but there is just something about hearing a V8 and Flowmaster exhaust tones that makes me smile. I guess I am lucky enough to be able to have two pleasure cars but I work hard and don't owe anything on them.
