Default White Curse is BS

I got this car about a year ago from a government auction. I'ts a plymouth breeze military cruiser(means it has ABS, full size spare, flashers in the headlights). It is a 2 liter L4 and has 132 horsepower, which means the people driving it probalbly abused the hell out of it. It had 33k on it when I got it and 47 k now a year later. It'* a 99. Here are pics of old faithful. This car has never let me down. YOu might say "you only had it a year" But a year with me as barebones transportation is a year of all out abuse. I have pegged this thing at 110 (throttle cut off speed) for 10 minutes never to see a problem. I've mounted a few curbs and I always bottum out the front when I hit a dip going too fast. This car is always ready for more. Little fricken trooper. I just thought I'd post this after reading all that white curse garbage. It'* all in your head guys. Here'* some Pics.

see, you problem is that this is not a bonneville and the white curse is a bonneville thing. Look at my car and my run in with a deer last night.

Looks like it was an Air Force SP vehicle.

But, if it'* running so well, why do you need the horse to pull it? Ain't that kinda like cheating?

My 150hp Sebring handles well at 110. It took too long to get there though. That'* why it went bye-bye.

well once i got my tires balanced it did fine at 110. Very good handling for a cheapo car. If only it had acceleration to go with.

Nice mud-look paintjob on that! Lol!

It looks like a good work horse...yuk, yuk.

Seriuosly though, you mention bottoming out. Are the shocks good or do you need to replace those, or is it just the taking bumps at speed, lol?

And, oh yeah. I don't believe in that silly curse crap either...
