good luck with $2500? you must have too much cash to spend. i picked up the Saab for $1000 off a kid who's got liscense sespended. there is a lot out there for even 1500, I am only looking in the 90's and once i have figured out the model and make i will get whatever it is i want, its not hard, just takes looking. Please keep posting ideas guys. I also need to be able to fit my 3 beautiful kids in the back, but no suv or wagon or minivans for me.
