Question towards Southern Wisconsin members

Have anyone of you ever seen an older white Chrysler Lebaron GTC cruising Hwy 94 at all? I ran into this guy this past Saturday night and I wasn't about to run with this guy. I probably wouldn't have run with him even if he was driving a powerwheel, either.

Anyhoo, the car had a spray can looking paint job and he or she even painted the torsion beam to match the car. I thought it looked really bad. What even made me laugh was the Kompressor badge on the trunk. At first I was like, WTF!?!? but then I cracked my window a little and heard his turbine whine. A little closer look revealed a mufflerless system with exhaust dumps before the rear wheels on both sides of the car.

The car looked like garbage but was fast as shit. I'm suspecting a 4G63 swap from an Eclipse. For all I know, it may have been an unknown project that Jason Tanin (owner of Lil Evo) had brewing. If you boosted Wisconsin guys ever run into him, please share.

I'm aware of that, but this one was definitely modded and I just wanted to get some faq's.

No, it wasn't the Maserati version since it had pop-up headlights. The Maserati TC versions had single exposed housings on each side.

I've been searching forums for this car and have been unluck so far. Where in the hell is Goat Roper? Maybe he's seen this thing.
