The 300 is also an auto only car. I'm not saying the 300 is a bad car, its just when Chrysler comes out with the "next best thing" it usually becomes a junkyard queen 5 years down the road.

Yes but on my next car it'll be either 5/6 speed, or RWD. Preferably both....

I'm not saying I want a 300, but they're nice, and destined to be a classic. Also, most Merc'* are not junkyard queens.

I'll agree with you on that. If I do get a RWD sports car, like a TA or something, I think I'd still keep the GTP as a daily driver.

Most cars in the US are built in the US. Toyota'* are built here, give us jobs, and feed our economy.

The New mustang was designed by a Vietnamese guy. A car is a car, don't judge it based on it'* country of origin (except italian cars )

I'll probably just keep the bonne as something to play with/beater/winter car. That being said I do believe RWD is easily winterable, if you're not an idiot, and have decent tires. People did it till the 80'*, why can't they anymore? Especially with traction control etc.

ok but look at it like this.....there was no power steering for a long time, there were no ABS for a long time. technolgy advances my friend. a FWD car is just better in the winter, why not drive one??? that is like saying i dont want power steering and abs that is just MO.....so whatever

I only want ABS in the winter. I Don't want Traction control in the dry, it better be fully defeatable on any car I get.

If you need to turn quicker with RWD in winter, you nail it, if you're in FWD you're hosed. FWD isn't necessarily better it'* safer for the aver age idiot.

Ok...let me be frank... Dodge/Chrysler have the most advanced onboard computer systems of any vehicle. This is because they suck so darn bad that the mechanic can't do anything but send it to the boneyard w/o these advanced systems to try and help him out.

Now..on the other hand....didn't anyone ever teach you the e-brake yank to spin the back end of a FWD to turn it quicker?

Yes i know plenty of things to do in this car, more then most people would think I could. However they're just silly playing around. I can get the backend to come around without subs in the trunk due to the weighting of the car. The back end is very light.

There'* no parking brake to "yank" in these cars (another necessity for performance driving...) either.
