        And check out the rear spoiler that pops up automatically at 60mph:

          Pictures and information on the Crossfire (or any other car for that matter) can be found at this website. I frequent this website just for the fun of it. It doesn't hurt to dream a little.

            This most certainly an OOOOOOO!AAAAAAA! kind of car. That wind spoiler is totally wild. Never saw anything like that before. Sawdust

              I had never heard of the Crossfire before now. It's a nice looking car--especially the back end. I've had one experience with a Chrysler product, and it wasn't good. At least I guess Dodge is a Chrysler product. The way they combine different makes of cars at one dealership, I'm not too sure. I had a 78 Dodge Diplomat Medallian (sp?). After three years I started having to put major bucks into it, and it was nothing but trouble after that. It was a beautiful car, and I got a lot of compliments on it, but looks was all it had going for it. Now I stay with Chevys since I've done well with them and only had two bad ones in my lifetime, and they were both used and worn out when I got them.

                Jon-Marc, the late 70s were some pretty lean years for Chrysler, and I think you've just given one of the reasons why.

                I don't even know what most of the Chrysler or Dodge models from that time looked like, except for perhaps the Charger. I can think of two reasons for that: either no one bought them in the first place, or they didn't last very long. The government had to bail out the company with a loan in 1981, IIRC, shortly before they were saved for good by the arrival of Lee Iacocca and the minivan.

                Chrysler has released some cool cars in the last ten years or so, and it looks like the trend is continuing.

                  Chrysler and Ford both have some great looking cars, but I personally don't care for either of them because of bad experiences with both. Maybe Chrysler has improved a lot since the 70's, but I would be afraid to find out. I have a Chevy Lumina which I like a lot, but I'm thinking about trying the Honda? Prius when I get another car because of the gas mileage.

                    JonMark, that's Toyota Prius. After three Escorts in a row, the Prius is also on my list of possible new cars (along with the Vibe/Matrix twins, Suzuki Aerio hatch and the PT Cruiser.) And, like you, I also had one of Chrysler's M-body chamber of horrors in the form of a '79 LeBaron. About the only thing in it's favor was the MoPar slant six was about as bullet-proof as they come.

                    BTW, the Crossfire is accually a Mercedes-Benz SLK with a different body.

                      Fred,

                      I can never remember which one between Toyota and Honda has which high mileage car. I do know the Prius gets the better gas mileage between the two. I also can't remember the name of the other car.

                        The Honda Insight has slightly better overall mileage, but the Toyota Prius does better in city driving.

                          OK! I've got it! Of course, I won't remember, but it's the Honda Insight I like the looks of better than the other one, but I read some good things recently about the Toyota Prius, and that's the one I was going to look at the next time I can afford a new car--if there is a next time.

                            You may want to look at the Subura Outback also. It gets 25-31 mpg, has AWD and room. It is recommended by several magazines. I have had a few problems with mine but I will never go back to a SUV of any type because I am sick of seeing so many of these gas hogs on the road spitting out pollutants and being driven by soccer moms. The latest Mother Earth New magazine has a good article on the Insight and Pruis. Also, the batteries in these cars are a potential safety hazard.

                              the crossfire is a nice looking car with a modified SLK platform I am not sure if they share the same drive train however
