1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z 2.2 intercooled turbo from North America
Timing belt broke at 63000 miles, but was my fault for not having it changed!
I bought my 87 Shelby Z brand new, and drag raced it at Englishtown NJ for 6 years, and drove the heck out of it on the track and on the street, and never broke anything ever!
It now has 76000 miles on it in 2010! If you keep it properly maintained and let the turbo cool down before shutting off the engine, it will last a very long time!
The drive train is bullet proof if you know how to drive properly. There is a fine line between driving hard and plain abuse!
With a few easy modifications, these cars are Mustang and Camaro eaters, and handle fantastic on twisty roads!
The suspension is hard on bumpy uneven pavement, just like a big block B body Mopar, but that's the way I like it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
