I'm finally in a position where I can get some wheels. Not expensive wheels, but wheels nonetheless. Whatever I get will be parked on the street in NYC, so I'm keeping my budget small.

I know I should just get a Corolla or Civic, but they leave me a bit cold. I will be getting an automatic, so a Miata is very unlikely. Scion Xb owners are a sketchy bunch (three for three so far with Title/VIN/payment issues) and I've been reading horror stories about Prelude transmissions.

So, I ask as to which would be better for a cheap-ish city car? A 6th-gen Celica GT, a 7th-gen Celica GT or a 3rd-gen Integra GS/LS?
