I couldn't help myself. I swore I'd never do it...but I take back every horrible thing I've ever said about 'em.

So he can't express his opinion? If you are going to post up your newest piece of plastic on a Mopar forum you should expect some criticism.

Because Moparts is an exclusive group of enthusiasts, right?

What? Moparts is about Mopars. It's not about mopeds, bicycles, dump trucks or egg timers. It wasn't meant to be all inclusive. I don't go to the diesel truck forum and talk about my Accent. If I went and posted pics of my new Hell Cat on the Corvette forum I would expect some criticism, wouldn't you?

The last plastic car I had was left broken in the sand box. I think I was 8.

But...for the sake of this conversation, I do happen to know of a C1 that is going to together with a turbo HEMI...just for laughs.

6 speed or auto? Assuming 6 speed...

My uncle had a late C3 with t-tops, then C5 and C6 convertibles. I drove the C5 and C6's, liked them both. The convertible C5 prices in particular are cheap enough now that it makes sense to pick one up for a decent cruiser. They really do ride and handle exceptionally well and get decent fuel economy, too. Interior is dated but that applies to anything from that era.

Its a blast...quick enough for me and handles like a gokart.

Plenty of twisty rural roads around my work so I have lots of opportunities for fun.

Its a 6-speed...and yeah, the C5 was the first year of the rear transaxle, so the weight distribution is a perfect 50-50 and that really does make a difference in the way the car handles...even in normal driving...and that LS1 us a beast. It pulls like a freight train all rhe way to redline.

And yeah...the interior can definitely use improvement. You can really tell that's where they compromised to get the car to its price point.

I have a C5 Convertible I bought as a DD a few years ago. Great cars, nice handling and excellent gas mileage for the power. I found a 19K mike original that A guy was selling so he could make room for his new C7. My Neon ACR was dying and I needed a new driver.
