hah, yeah. I just saw one of my good friends for the first time since I got the 93. I had it sitting in the shade sparkling through the sunlight, he didn't recognize me in it! So I shout HEY! Got his attention and he got out of his car and said holy SHEET. new car? I'm like YEEP. Hes like it looks like your 98, but must be wayyy newer, I'm like, nope, this is a 93.
His jaw DROPPED. Never really liked my 98, wasn't in the greatest condition, and now we're talkin about a mopar guy here, knows nothing else, drives nothing else, and he was just floored by this thing. So hes like what kinda power it got? like 120 hp? I'm like hah, no bud, unlike your LeBaron its 170 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. Another jaw drop.
Especially when I told him that it weighs what his LeBaron does.
I think he wants a bonneville now. Almost sold him when I told him that this was actually slow compared to the SSEis with 205, 225 or 240 hp.
Me thinks he might be getting into GMs now.
gotta love some fast movin granny car.
Edit: forgot to mention that he has been through 3 engines in 100k and is starting not to like that very much
I told him that they run well into 300k plus with normal maintenance. He told me that NOT having to swap an engine every 33k just wouldn't feel normal.
