    The crossfire is a SLK MERCEDIES chassis. But 15.000
    less and Interior is made at same factory. I know Todd Fisher Debbie Renyolds Son bought a toyota all electric car by toyota and after all rebates it was less than 20,000. It's a 40,000 car.

    most people haven't seen one so we get alot of questions about it. All I can say it's fun and fast too. at 100 u feel like your doing 70. A very stable car. [/qb]
    Today we went to an auto show, where I made it a point to check out the Crossfire. Great looking car. It's bound to be fun.

    We spent extra time with the new Toyota Prius. It's really impressive?lot's of space and fuel economy too. It takes a while to get my head around the fact that it gets better mileage in city traffic than on the highway.

    My favorite car at the show was the Porsche Turbo. Would have driven one home, but at $140,000 it put my MasterCard over limit. The card was declined. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Nude-N-Free, what on earth would I want an AWD for? As a former 125 mile a day, six day a week for ten years, now down to a mere 42 miles a day, five days a week, I enjoyed a reputation for showing up for work when others living less than a mile or two away called in to say they couldn't get out of their own driveway.I just stuck to my Corvairs for winter driving as long as I could and then swichted to FWD.
    I have driven AWD Subees, AMC Eagles and Audi Quattros and just don't see the point to it. While they all inspired wonderful driver confidence in snow and on ice, the danger of over-confidence comes into play when trying to stop on slick surfaces. Plus the added wieght, fuel consumption and maintenence costs more than offset any perceived advantages in the snow.

    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.

    BTW, the Crossfire is accually a Mercedes-Benz SLK with a different body. [/qb]

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
