    Thats actually less than 1/2 AMG or M5 price in Australia - we get gouged by the manufacturers and luxury car tax, etc.

    You definitely have a taste for the finer things!!! What's a 936 going for these days? Several mil I'd imagine. Startos is one of my all time favorites.

    (just for the record I don't live in a Barrio; never owned one but I had a Celica GTS which had the same body and interior but was powered by the 22RE)

    Get a new one, they are LIGHT years ahead of the older vehicle.... 400 plus HP that will run with most any car on the road today for the price of an Accord or a Camry...

    Can't beat that.

    I belive the "936" is a replica...note the plate and signal lights. The Stratos is most definitely a replica. I am OK with replicas that stay true to the aesthetics, yet can deliver a more useable experience.

    Can't argue that but I, like Dukeryder, have a jones for the Mustang I grew up with. It may not be as fast but it's fast enough

    I don't even care that the car is built on a 78 Ford Fairmont chassis. The car is one of the best sounding cars ever made. Definitely was THE cool car to have when I was a teen, the car that was voted "Best Car" in our senior year book was one kid's 1988 GT.

    Its got everything us 'Mericans want: V8, room, etc. Too bad it isn't an SUV. No SUV = no sales here in the US. :cry

    Its completely beside the fact that all SUVs are are tall wagons. :rolleyes

    Ah, but the difference is in the EPA classification. A wagon is held to a higher standard than is a same-size SUV.
