What Car Should I Get Next?

Well it has come to the dreadful time of my cars life when its time to put her out to pasture. The car has been my baby for 7 yrs and have gotten my enjoyment out of her. With the resent problems of a bad rod bearing and likely crank damage I think it is time to move on. My friends dad who is a mechanic said we could put in an oversized bearing to get it back up and running but there would be no guarantee on how long it would last. To do it correctly would mean either swapping in a new engine or rebuilding the current engine. Either way it would be costly and a timely project. I have decided its probably best to just get her up and running with a new bearing and then let her be on her way.

I think I can probably get around 8k give or take a little and was wondering what kind of cars others would suggest I look into getting. I would like to keep the price to around 10k or under. I wouldn't mind upgrading to an SS but there are a lot of other nice cars out there. What is everyone's opinion?

That's expensive for 100k miles. Mods don't add value either
