    Bought it from a friend in Arizona towed it out to me its a 1989 Dodge Daytona ES Turbo. He though the car was mint, but as soon as it got here I found a ton of problems with it. Since its my daily until the cougar gets back on the road its gonna be getting my money and time until its fixed. Its been a desert car its whole life and only dealer maintained I have all original documents including what the original owner purchased it for.

    I played with a lot of Turbo Dodges. The mechanicals of the cars are usually reliable, it's the electronics and wiring that's the issue.

    I still miss my Shelby Chargers.
    It's Gumby's fault.

    They just take some getting used to. Everyone complains about torque steer, but it's actually kinda fun. The turbo dodges are surprisingly quick and handle pretty damn well in stock form, and they don't take much to make them pretty damn mean.

    If you haven't yet, check out turbo-mopar.com. Very knowledgeable group of people there. Turbododge.com turned lame really fast.

    My wife drives an 85 Voyager with an 85 Daytona Turbo Z drivetrain swapped in. It's a fun lil' sleeper.
