Re: Tell Me About The Plymouth Prowler... (Braga_Dub)

Lots of style, the hold their value very well. (I found one for sale recently, and they were asking $36k)
On the downside, the engine is a bit underpowered (although this is a car meant for cruising, not racing), and some of the interior bits (like the climate control/radio) are regular Chrysler parts bin pieces.
I'd love to own one, though. Quite the little attention grabber.


front end collisions look espensive to fix though

it shares the motor thats currently found in the chrysler 300M (I believe). My dads old 300 had it, it's not a bad motor just not exciting by anymeans.
I think they are all slushbox's too

they are hot and I would rock one anyday though

Yeah, they have that AutoStick thing. It's like a quasi-manual. But not really.

Oh, and it has the BMW Z8ish center dash gauges.

Re: Tell Me About The Plymouth Prowler... (passatW86sp)

uggggggggg. made a huge post about how it's really not that slow and it got deleted when i hit the damn back button on my keypad
stupid hotkeys

anyway, to summarize, what is slow people?
from a motortrend article:
Compare that not only to a stock '99 Prowler (0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, with a 14.3-second/95.4-mph quarter)
http://motortrend.com/roadtest...re01/
0-60 in well under 6 with low 14s in the quarter is slow?
yeah yeah yeah, it needs a v8 and a 6 speed, but as it is, the car isnt exactly "slow". it's got more power than a B5 S4 and weighs under 2900 pounds.
