The guys from Edmunds know a thing or two about cars so they put together a list of the top 10 used cars you should probably own to make sure you experienced the best of the best. In case you can't afford to go through all of them, at least make sure you drive them all for a life-time long memory.

Amongst the nominees (that include the 1991 Acura NSX, Honda S2000, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Ford F150 SVT Raptor and a couple others) you'll also find the original M5, the E28 model.

The car's inline 6-cylinder 3.5-liter engine and the 5-speed transmission were the forefathers of modern day high-performance sedans. Even though it was built over 25 years ago, it's still worth getting one.

The S38 engine under the bonnet is solid as a rock and unless it was meddled with might very well be still working as it was in day one, despite gathering a lot of miles on the odo.

Getting one of these hand-crafted cars is a daring endeavor because of their limited numbers though. The US only got around 1,200 of these babies and as time went on, they got scarcer and scarcer.

In case you do find one, chances are it was modified so be careful about buying such a car. For a car in almost mint condition though, do expect to pay in excess of $15,000.
