2018 Scat Pack SHAKER in Plum Crazy
What got me out of it all was I got rear ended in my Rampage, my head blew out the rear window! Wasn't a real bad hit, and it was repairable, but I sold my whole hobby. 2 Rampages, and a complete torn down Shelby Charger Turbo with the Getrag to go into the 2nd Rampage. And some other stuff chucked in both.Got into the TD world with an 86 LeBaron 4 door. Had the 2.2 T1 5 speed, converted it to an auto so my wife would drive it. Bought a mid 80's Charger I was going to swap that drivetrain into (with the stick) when I found out the deck on the motor was torched and I would never get a HG to last. Then I tripped over an '89 LeBaron GTC T2 5 speed car. Drove the wheels off that car, let it go at well over 200K miles when I got frustrated with it. I miss that car. Even had an '04 PT GT auto that we drove until it got wrecked.
One thing I don't miss though is, it seemed like with turbo cars when something was off the car was just a problem. Towards the end, that PT just wouldn't accelerate on the highway without bucking and surging. Never figured out why, it went away before it had to be fixed. Just seems like boost doesn't just amplify the power, it also amplifies the problems.
Before i found my '89 GTC, I tripped over a '90 GTC with the VNT motor. Tried hard to buy it, but it got sold about the same time I thought I finally had everything lined up. Man I wanted that car.
Always wanted an SRT-4, but seems like they have dried up now.
If that didn't happen, I would have went down the 16v rabbit hole with a PT Cruiser head and custom intake/intercooler.
The 1988 LeBaron we bought new was the "Turbo Coupe" package. It was basically a GTC with out intercooler and with an auto. It was a base model but with the premium interior panels, but analog gauges and no cornering lights. And the side moldings had "TURBO" printed on them, with no TURBO/EFI emblems. It was 1$2,300 base plus $4,800 for the Turbo Coupe package, included basically all other options added in. In Twilight Blue with blue interior, it was sharp. I have never seen another with that package.
