    It's 1958, your friend has just the other day, gone off the road in a nightly chase in the hills, luckily he survived with just bruises, but your car has seen better days, burned out wreck, narrowingly escaping the law this time, you need a new car, but as business are up you better get two...

    Sooo, what's on the shopping list? ;)

    Interesting to read that article, one of guys favourite car for this, was a '61 Chrysler New Yorker, if I remember correctly.....
    Mopar fan and all, but not really a car, that you think of being nimble, quick, around corners...or?

    As big as a Ford Galaxy I reckon. The Galaxy did well in circuit racing but, was really too heavy.
