glad to be back to in my trep

Man am I glad to be back in my trep. I was in pittsbirgh on a business trip and was stuck in a mid-size rental bracket. I asked the guy if he had any mopars and he said no so I ended up gettin a toyota corolla. I went out to pick up the car and the was atleast 5 stratus' out there dumb ass clerk. the thing was a box i felt like the wheel was attached to my chest and no matter how far back i put the seat my knees still hit the damn wheel. Im only 6'1" its not like im a 7 footer. Any way thanks for listening to me bitch a little. Happy to be back in the cab forward design.

I know how you feel. My wife drives a 98 Prizm (Corolla clone). I avoid that thing like the plague. Drives decent enough. Like you though, I just canít fit in the damn thing.

Lol I'm with you guys there. ;) My girlfriend seems to like sunfires, and if she ever wants me not to drive her car (think about designated driving here honey, that could be useful) Well I'd refuse. 6'3.

I drove a ragtop miata once. Rag top up. Henry and Hendersons style. Big bump in the roof, literally.

We live in Chesapeake VA and I'm stationed in Ney Jersey (Navy) and I use our second car a Ford Tempo GL for up there and to come home on the weekends. Although mechanicly wise the Tempo is great with a 100,000 miles plus it's nothing like sliding into that Intrepid on the weekends. I did have it up north once and it was a great driving pleasure @ 95 mph plus on the GS Parkway. Like Jeremy Mayfield says "That's no canned ham under the hood"
