I'm back, and with a new car too!

I sold my SHO. I was tired of having the automatic, and after searching forever to find a MTX SHO for a reasonable price, decided to settle with a 1991 Plymouth Laser RS Turbo 5-speed that I bought for $300 with 146,3XX miles.

I know, I SWORE I would never buy a DSM car. Yes, I still think they're crap. In fact, mine is out of commission right now due to turbo seals. But they are fun as hell!!!

That things gonna look meaner than HELL when I get it painted black and accent everything (emblems etc.) in red.

And I made a mistake...I looked in the door panel today and saw that it was manufactured in December of '89. So that would make it a '90 model.

They aren't all shit. If you treat them like shit, they will be shit. If they've been treated well, they will hold up well. Keep that in mind.

Well yeah. Thats the case. But I mean...right now we have a 1993 Eclipse GS 5-speed in the garage that was GOING to be mine until we found the Laser. Someone had let it get so hot that it punch a hole in the piston and melted the top down a little bit. They always seem to be blowing the headgasket around 140-150K.

Thats ok, we're putting it back together now (fixed) and getting it ready to sell.

Good thing you didn't get that one. The non-turbo models blow.
