    Awesome Car, Worth The Buy If You Like Learning How To Repair Stuff! — Great car for its time, definitely a classic. I just bought this car and it looks amazing. Experiencing some issues with the vacuum lines, but I'll have that fixed soon. Very fun to drive! Interior looks great and feels very sporty. I paid 1150 and I'm going to do about $500 in work and it should be excellent. Only real problem is that the doors have to swing out really far in order to get out comfortably, I may be installing some vertical doors in the near future...

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fast, fun, makes you feel like Speed Racer

    Cons: Doors swing far, can't find much help for repairs

    If You Take Care Of It.. It Will Take Care Of You. — Performance - Quick as hell, Braking could use work but a lil work with after marked parts, handling was amazing. Build Quality - Pretty strong all around. Appearance - Sleeper look with the heart of a champ. Cost of Ownership - Cheap parts for a dodge but quite a pain to work on, small spaces.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: A blast to drive

    Cons: No real reasons but MAINTAIN

    I Miss This Car. — My first car, the baby of my life. I do regret selling it somedays, but on others, I'm glad its problems are no longer mine. The car had problems, but what 20something year old car won't?? I loved this car, though I didn't show it much at all...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a peice of artwork.

    Cons: Every car has downfalls, this one had many.

    Wish I Still Had This One — Turned 16 and i was given this car by a family friend. Only problem I ever had with this carwas the vaccum system on it. Even the slightest leak caused the engine to sputter when you stepped on the gas.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great car, nice looking, turbo

    Cons: vaccum leak would cause problems

    My First Car — It was in all honesty the plymouth version of the same car, the plymouth Turismo it had a 2.2L I4 that put out about 110 hp and with a 5 speed it was a pretty quick little hatchback. I was the third owner my uncle and dad had had the car before I go ahold of it, my uncle had taken the power steering pump out and my dad the ac compressor before I got it and finally fixed the overheating problem it had. Overall it was a fun car would love to get my hands on another!

    Pros: quick small and fun to drive

    Cons: it was old so it needed more tlc than I could afford then

    I Cant Explain Any Of This — How to review a K-car that I put 12 miles on in my year of ownership? Amazing is the best that comes to mind, my car came to me with a blown headgasket. While replacing that I threw in a huge cam, a 750cfm Holley carb, and, a long tube header with stright pipe. Other wise the car was very stock(shelby suspension and brakes) and very rusty. Once I got it running well eneough and decided to take it for a drive I didnt stop smiling for 3 days. It was by far the slowest and about the worst car I have ever driven and I would give anything for another one.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: I dont have it anymore
