    I just saw an ad for the 2013 Dodge Dart....

    ...and I don't know how I feel about it...

    No - I take that back. I do know how I feel about it: I feel very vague.
    There's nothing for you to see here...just move along, now...

    I was wondering why it looked european. It's an alfa under that sticker.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    One of my friends did something like that years ago, except he built the motor himself.

    Oh, yeah, the K-car revival is right around the corner, except that they will use the Alfa Romeo Milano body.

    It's time to let go of V8s my friend. Twin turbo v6 will get you all the power you need in a lighter package.

    And the small block 340 is a far better option than a big block at times as well. I have no real attachment to any of them; for years my dream car was a Noble M400. That's some Turbo V6 goodness right there.

    yes, you are the only one.

    I've always wanted to take a porsche 911 turbo engine and drop it in an alfa romeo spyder (think the convertible in the graduate).
    And since this "dart" is an alfa, I think this thread is as good as any to express this.

    I'm not sure if they had that setup, but I believe you could get a Dart with a 340 six pack from the dealer.
