Yep, I'm at it again, because I cannot stop myself from planning what I'd like. I set my budget at 12k, and paged through 2300 Autotrader listings...of which I have 15 lovelies set aside that meet my criteria. Some of these you will hate. Some you will want. All are within easy driving distance of me. "Sulu voice" Oh my.

(Also I just noticed the ratio of Mazdas to anything else in the list. Lol I am becoming a fanboy, I reckon.)

In no particular order...
