My taste in cars is… questionable, at best. By that, I mean that I should probably be tied up and thrown into the loony bin.
I have a weakness for turbo Mopar goodness, be it the mighty GLHS, or your aunt’s Sundance RS. At the top of this mountain of ill-conceived and badly-built Americana is the Chrysler TC by Maserati. Because, you know, anything Italian is automatically classy.
Though most examples of the TC are lackluster snooze-mobiles, 501 cars were given a little something special. These cars were equipped with a 2.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, jointly developed by Chrysler, Maserati and Cosworth. This engine featured a Maserati-designed head and a bevy of internal modifications, and put out a respectable (for the time) 200 horespower. The cherry on top is the five-speed manual transmission, which replaced the awful automatic otherwise found in a TC.
And just look at that interior.
Awful Sumptuous, no? All that’s missing is a car phone.
As per the ad:
Removable Hardtop, Leather Interior, Power Seat – Driver, Tilt Wheel, Cruise, AM/FM Stereo, Cassette/CD, Premium Sound
Call me crazy, but at that price, it’s almost tempting (for me).
