What should I buy fellas

So everyone. I have two payments left on the GTO and she will be released from the evil grip of the bank and be 100% MINE! With that being said. Ill be keeping the Goat. Ill also be looking for an additional vehicle. Seeing as most of you are slightly insane like myself... I ask of you to help me decide what i should get as my next vehicle...

I have no kids... No wife... No major financial obligations... Im willing to spend up to $45k but would like to keep it below that if I can manage. I would like to get something low miles, no more than 35k on the OD. Im open to all opinions Trucks, Cars or SUV's. I want it to be something enjoyable and not a Camry or a Honda Civic haha. SHOOT!

I vote house and a commuter as well. I appreciate the GTO that much more after having to drive the accord round trip 45 minutes each day 7 days a week for my job or the wife's.

Also houses wont get much cheaper than they currently are.

Well unfortunately I wouldnt be able to buy a home... I already own a really nice duplex in Florida where Im originally from. Its super nice too, brand new in 2003, has a pool. Huge yard, nice neighborhood. Two garages. Best of all its rented! Both sides rented more than pays for the mortgage. The bank wouldnt let me get another place here. Im only 24 lol they dont want to give away loans like that to me.
So with that said. I cant buy just a regular commuter... thats gay. I am in love with the C6z but i think my better judgement will steer me away from one of those for the time being, only because the roads and parking lots here suck and i would bottom that thing out everywhere. Im thinging CTSV or maybe a Chrysler 300SRT8 or Charger SRT8??
