Some seasoned car buyers might want to relive their youth and hark back to what was cool in the days of convertibles and drive-in movies; others might decide to keep things a bit more modern with hipper, greener vehicles.
You don't have to spend a fortune to get a midlife pick-me-up. We took the hottest vehicles ranging from $16,589 to $62,750 and ran them through Kiplinger's rankings -- which reward gas mileage, resale value and safety as well as performance -- to find the best values. There's something for everyone on this list, whether you want a superfast roadster or you want to feel younger (and cooler) -- as responsibly as possible, of course.
