sailor Best car I've ever owned, "imprecise shifting" is the only thing anyone could complain about and what do you want from a rear mounted transaxle?

It's a real "GT" when passengers estimate speed 40-50mph low.


For "most embarrassing", anything with a manual on the column that isn't a Mercedes.

cbdallas I'd drive a GLHS right now. Hell, I'd like to have my V6 / 5-speed Sundance back. Not so much a Turbo Caravan.

A big part of it is that Carrol Shelby worked for Chrysler then and made a several performance cars, primarily the GLH, GLHS and the CSX which are numbered Shelby cars with 190-225hp from the factory (again mid 80s). There was also a dealer package (Super 60) to bump up to 300 hp.
This^^^^^^^^ a guy down the street in my old neighborhood had a couple of those= GLH & a Shelby charger.

sailor Surprising how large "small cars" are now when you compare them.

Pennut Yeah I know new cars are quite a bit heavier. Just thought my Wagon was bigger before I looked up the dimension specs.
