There's a Daytona up for sale, for only 2500 OBO, its an 87, it just got new paint job, new brakes, new ball joints and new idler arms. .

the only problem am having here is that im getting alot of mixed reviews from alot of people. . .

im hearing stuff from they brake down constantly, to their gods gift to chrysler. . .

just want to get some info from people who actually know about cars. . i mean, an 87. . . with new paint and no rust

(5 spd manual of course)

Ask jack or Blaine on that board. They will give you straight answers, they are not into BS or anything like that.

One of my friends has one. I think her's is a 91 or 92. She's had it for a few years and loves it to pieces. I've known her for just over a year and she's never had any problems whcih surprises me, cuz she doesn't maintain it at all :eek:

What motor is in it? I would look for a turbo II if possible or a shelby (best one out there, but rare) The cars from what i see are very reliable and i dont see too many come though the shop or for parts (just the usual filters and small things like belts). I would take the car for a ride and see how its runs.. take it up near the red line and see how hot it gets
