Stuck on what to buy!

As crazy as this seems I am having a really hard time deciding what to buy. My limit is about 30k, I have my truck for my dd, so I'm looking for something a little older that I can track.

Right now I'm contemplating between a 1994 Acura NSX, importing a mint 1997-98 Skyline GTR (auction grade 4B minimum), or an 11-12' STi. Of course the STi is probably the smartest thing to do, but I'm looking for a car that you don't see everyday.

Has anybody driven one of these cars that could offer some input?

Cheers.

NSX if you want something eye-catching that you don't see everyday.

STIs aren't really special and only car geeks know what a Skyline GTR is, to most people its just an old Nissan.

25k can get you a clean 700whp c5 z06 in the states. Around 20k for a non-boosted one 405bhp stock. Good bang for the buck if you aren't concerned with a nice interior.

Don't see one everyday, can get 30mpg, dealer network across north America and a HUGE aftermarket.

Being that you have a practical daily, get something impractical as fuck. I vote NSX, or a ridiculously modded r34 from your choices.
