Another New Toy In the Driveway

Actually it is our "Family" Ride. There is 3 of us (Wife, Daughter, and I). The car is actually big enough that you can ride 5 adults fairly comfortably. It may be a 2 door car, but its one of the biggest 2 door cars I have seen in a while. Plus we don't like boring 4 door family cars, we like to get the funnest thing we can that meets our needs. And this will do it. The Sebring was getting cramped. My daughter's (in a booster seat) feet was in the back of the front seat and my, or my wife's, knees were in the dash. I hope this one will stay around for a while. lol

Nice! I like the Plum Crazy. I see you got the 6 speed. Good choice! The autos are a little quicker but I love rowing through the gears on mine.

Whats the point of having a car like that if you are rowing through the gears, I mean that is half the fun of it.

We were looking at an orange "shaker" one at a different dealer, but could not work the deal I wanted to on it.
