What do you think? It'* a much different beast than my SSEi, it wont handle for crap and obviously not as spunky as the supercharged 3.8, but still scoots for how big it is.

Rented one of those to go out west. They got the 2.83 axle so 2nd gear goes to 101mph.

LMAO, it'* directly in front of my parents house, so it makes for an easy/convenient shoot. I just back out of the driveway and, viola! It'* either that, or taking pic'* in front of my crappy apartment.

I love that car. I've alway been attracted to those kinds of cars. I don't know why but my only major prolbem is that it wasn't available with the L67 (at least I don't think...) IT may roll a lot in corners but that can be easily fixed. I like the Park Avenue but it'* a bit too big for my tastes.
