non-turbo they are dogs, only around 100hp.....but they have lots of potential. the 86 lebaron w/ 2.2 T1 was nice...and it was only at 10psi in stock trim.

A buddy of mine had a Shelby Daytona. He said it was the biggest POS he's ever owned.

I had a Dodge Stealth R/T. It was the biggest POS I've ever owned.

My wife had a Dodge Stratus. It was the biggest POS she's ever owned.


See a pattern here? LOL

Good luck with it. Just be aware that most of the Daytona's you find now days are going to take a lot of work, time, and money to be "right".

86 lebaron convertible - one of the best cars i've ever owned.

i had a daytona before and would have kept it if i wasn't in a bad spot and needed a different car. i've had other "mopars" and they have all had issues, but all cars have issues.

Especially if you don't maintain them very well.

My mother had a 90 Lebaron GTC. That mad mammajamma would haul some arse. Made it from Daytona Beach to St.Augustine beach in 40 mins. Great looking car too.
