    doing a little more looking into it... it looks like the red one that says excelence reborn is the one that it will be. i also found that that it will most likely have an LS2 @ 400HP.

    i saw those pics before there still loads of work to go into it. the 99 charger concept looked more like the original charger but look at it now. really sexy.

    speakig of ls2's anyone here driven the GTO? we can get them in canada and theres only 18000 in the states. in australia the gto is actually the holden monaro

    friend of mines dad has a new GTO. he says its fast, but i dont know much more then that.

    although for him it should seem fast, hes got a 95 Accord. he drove a cobra once also but he cant drive a stick worth a damn, and the cobra was a 6 speed.

    as for the new chargers, they look ugly as hell. they look like a freakin dodge magnum.

    nicest Eclipse ever-

    http://www.velocityjrnl.com/jrnl/2006/vmd10268ml.html



    Not sure if it is AWD yet or not- or if it will be an option.. ever.. I liked the AWD ones..

    edit--
    Looks like only FWD :-( -the V6 is the fast one-


    Also I watched Car and Driver today on TV and when they tested the V6- they averaged 15MPG! damn- sucks a lot a gas.

    damn. a V6 that only does 15MPG? i cant imagine theyll let that go to production with that kind of milage.

    my damn corvette has a huge 5.4L 350ci V-8 that does like 10-13MPG and thats 36 years old too.

    speaking of the vette, its sitting in my drive way right now :) now i need to see about takeing care of some leaks, and putting the interior back in.

    hahahahah :rofl: that's awesome :D.

    well, as for the pollution thing....maybe not for the world, but the states, followed closely by Dallas (i think) Texas (but i do know that it's Texas).

    About the new Eclipse.....i don't like that crossover hatch for the rear. I feel that the bar will get in the way when putting stuff in or out of the rear area. The car is also insanley heavy......3,500Lbs.! But it will be sporting out it's 3.8L v6 engine putting out 263HP and 260Lbs. of torque.

    only from the rear end. the side looks like a Hyundai Tiburon, and the front says Mitsubishi :p.

    It's a shame I don't like the Hyundai Tiburon :bleh:
    A car I'd want that is affordable would be the Mitusbishi 3000GT, one of my most fav. cars of all time :)

    I'm a huge fan of the new Mustangs, I love the 70's styling on it, looks real mean. Plus the starting price of about 19,000$ isn't half bad either.

    i love the look of the new charger, but its screaming 2door only IMO. the 4 door isnt great. i like what dodge has done with the magnum and charger looks solid. the SRT-8 is mean, 425 horses outta the 6.0l not bad at all. i drove the magnum, for a large car like that i found it handle just like a european car to be honest. lots of power when you need it and controlled movement. also it was only the sxt model which was 250hp outta the 3.5l.

    my friend took a picture with the new eclipse i cant find it right now. we were drunk at the autoshow so he got on the stage where it was being rotated during closing time no one stopped him and we got the picture. fucking hillarious. but they did go back to the older design. i heard this generation of eclipse will share platform with the dodge sx 2.0/neons in the near future.

    how? they are two different companies. that is unless one owns a percentage of the other which i doubt is the case

    you never knew chrysler owned about 22% or so of mitsu? ever wonder why the talon and eclipse looked exactly the same? or why there was acolt and eagle lancer? even though mitsubishi is pretty independent in the states nowadays, it still has a partnership with chrysler. chrysler also has some part in mclaren ive heard.
