    Never, ever, did I see one of these things where the nose fit right.
    It was always too wide, or crooked, just poorly installed.

    But that was the Mopar mantra.

    Well this isn't exactly defined as a car but if I had the money to walk into a dealer and buy one of these, I would be numb to anyone who would suggest that this is not a muscle car in the classical sense. I might agree with them but when you can get a 707 HP Grand Cherokee from the factory, I shaint be doing much quibbling. Unfortunately, I have to find a bank who will grant me $80,000. One badass Muscle Jeep!!

    1987 Buick Grand National for me. Have had two in my life. An 84 when I was younger and a low mileage moonroof, digital dash 87 when I was older.

    The last fast car I had was a 1988 Pontiac Formula 350.
    It was fun to drive. Fast for it's time.


    Just like this one.

    Wife has a Grand Cherokee the 350 hp Hemi which is pretty stout.
    They had the SRT on the showroom floor for $20k more.
    Another we visited had the (Trackhawk?) for $99k.

    Dodge/Jeep/Ram is weird with all the expensive options and versions. When I went on the lot to lease a GC, the guy said "we have almost 50, just walk the lot and pick whichever one you want." Well, there were sticker prices from $37k up to $47k...all for the same $300 per month. Guess which one I chose?!

    So, my theory is if you buy one with a lot of options, it might be a lot cheaper to lease it for 3 years and then buy it rather than buying it new for cash. It was the same way when I bought a Ram1500 over a decade ago..."just pick one."

    New a guy had this Phase IV Riviera, like a 1971, looked just like this. It was fast as shit. Certainly not a muscle car in the traditional sense though.
    Would keep up with most anything.

    Yeah those old boat tail Rivieras had a 455 C.I. big block and were pretty powerful. As my uncle would say; "goes by anything, but a gas station"

    Naturally aspirated big block Mopar Hemi.

    For the price, you simply cannot buy a car today with this much fun packed in for so little.

    Not a fan of coupes. But yes, sweet.

    4 doors please.

    I want an Avant for when we downsize to 2 cars at most in retirement.

    And I'll likely never have an RS6, but an S6 Avant would do.
