So, the 944 I was looking at has already sold. Here's the listing: http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/3998138991… The maintenance history was a huge selling point to me. It's going to be a while before I can find a seemingly-trustworthy one like that again.

So in the meantime, with a maximum budget of $4500, what would you recommend for me? Preferably nothing Japanese. I like classics, RWD sports cars, and other interesting cars. I already have a reliable daily driver, so it doesn't have to be entirely practical (which is why I was considering 944s). So, suggestions?
