That's awesome man. I've seen a few in junkyards, but never in person outside of them :P
when my first kid was born from my second marriage, the wife drove a escort zx3. ever try and get a car seat in the back of one?
i started to look around on craigslist for (ugh) a four door. kept seeing damned buicks that looked like a grandpa should be driving (no offense to buick driving grandpas) so i kinda decided on a trep. all the local ones were plain janes. expanded my search and found the first r/t about 10 hours away, me and my oldest kid went and picked it up.
after having it a few years, wanted to upgrade a little bit, so picked up the other one, it was just a few hours away from where i found the first one (minneapolis). figure on driving the second one for at least a few years, maybe longer.
really like the fun factor in the family car
plus it's pretty unique looking. oh btw the 01 red r/t motorsport edition is by far the best looking trep
my 3 year old boy calls it "daddy's red racecar" lol we enjoy the huge interior and just everything about the car. every time we take one out the kids are just ecstatic... daily driver is a 360 powered ram 1500 4wd work truck, it's a lot more fun taking one of the treps for sure!
might move on to a challenger or 300m or who knows what in a few, but for now we love the motorsport edition
