This is what a Miata looks like after it jettisons a wheel at 35mph and finds a telephone pole. Thankfully, Gianni's kid is okay, but he learned a valuable lesson about wheel studs, torque, & driving a Reliant Robin.
As much as I would love to recommend some late model understeering economy car with a slushbox (oooohh...maybe a Prius), I think a better punishment would be a slow/stodgy classic that'll only work one third of the time you need it. Like this 1971 Jaguar XJ6 barn find located here on eBay bidding for $3,050 with 2 days to go, located in Dalton, WI.
