1987 Shelby GLHS Charger 2.2L Intercoooled turbo from North America
Still the most fun for the buck ever offered
Distributor pickup went at 36,000 miles. Clutch seized at 19,000 miles because of metal fatigue in the clutch itself.
I bought this car new and it is the most fun car I have ever had even though my '69 Barracuda was a high 11 sec. car before I tamed it down for street use. This car is as fast as you would ever need and even 20 years later it out handles just about anything that costs less the $75,000. I has been nearly problem-free for 20 years. It is like using a severely overpowered go cart for every day driving. Too much fun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I owned a 1990 Omni non-turbo 5-speed and it was one of the neatest little cars I ever owned. My best friend bought the car new, so I knew its history very well.
I bought it from him at 183,000+ miles. Up to that point it had had ONE brake job, ONE timing belt and NOTHING ELSE. I drove the car to 240,000+ miles and did one more brake job, one more timing belt replacement and replaced one heater hose.
When I sold the car it had never had CV joints replaced, never had any lubricant added to the transaxle (or changed either) and still did not use a drop of oil. The A/C still cooled great and had never had freon added.
Boy, would I love to find another car like that for $800!! (Which is what I bought and sold it for).
