you should win. Those cars are pretty old and not reliable. Go get em!

Default What year?

LOL my first car was an 86 Plymouth Laser! It was decently quick, but deffinately not fast. I know back in that era they had 141HP. I just wish I knew as much about cars then as I do now( not that a lot now either ) I'm sure with the turbo a few good mods would have it going pretty quick. But wow was it ever unreliable, it would break something every other week it seemed.

If it is a turbo and all wheel drive with the 5spd it will launch hard off the line and kill you from then on out but then again it is a domestic rice burner but I'd take one because they are pretty quick.
