Here's the car I just picked up here in germany for $3K
It's Euro spec, unfortunately because I'd love to hang on to this one and bring it back to the the states. It's got a 2 liter v-6 and weighs next to nothing, handles like one of those racing go-carts and if you notice the speedo goes to 240 KPH which equates to 149 MPH (had it to 210 KPH on the auto-bahn so far). My work sent me to Atlanta last week for a CISCO network school so I'm actually glad to be back to Germany (if you live in Atlanta or have visited you can understand that comment), anyways...almost have all the boxes unpacked and hopefully I'll get to hit the local field next weekend, although I maybe going to Italy the end of this week, this new job might start screwing with my paintball addiction.

Is that the Euro version of the 626? If so the front end is pretty sweet. I'm not too crazy on how those tweeters are mounted on the door panel though.

glad your doing well!

Good to see your getting settled. Nice wheels BTW. I'd love to get on the Autobahn and go go fast :). Both my daughters live in Atlanta so I relate to your comment. Rush hr. or just after a Braves game...not the time to be there.:eek:

battle, no, its much smaller than the 626... fun little car though. its about the equivalent of an old corolla or golf. nice temp tags :D
my dad got lucky, he picked up a '91 BMW 750i (v12, 300 hp) for $700 because the guy was PCSing.

i lol'd at the atlanta thing. was at benning for a week when my dad was in OCS, columbus and atlanta both kinda suck.

Its the euro only model of the 323...which we used to have here in the states but as a sedan. It looks like its got a KLZE which is a pretty good motor.

Atlanta was great, you guys apparently went to the wrong place. The girls are amazingly hot there, and they know how to make mixed drinks everywhere in that city.

pretty cool car, I think going on the autobahn would be bad ass

08-10-2008, 10:28 PM
It's the 323!

Front end reminds me of a Nissan NX. In fact, the entire thing reminds me of an NX. Just, this has 4 doors, as that had 2. That car also sucked balls. :p

Looks fun to drive. Jealous that you have the autobahn!

EDIT: Just noticed Chris beat me to the punch... >.<

Yeah, it does remind me A LOT of an NX.

It's the 323F, only available in Euro spec, has the same motor that was available in the 626 but is considerably lighter. Got the Permanent Tags today getting through the Euro Safety Insp was kinda a *****, picky ***'s.

Big engines in tiny cars ftw. :)

Speaking of which... I wonder what they're doing with that proposed CRX...

08-11-2008, 04:53 PM
speaking of big engines in small cars... theres an awesome little SRT-4 around here (owned by an MP). cant believe they squeezed 230 HP stock into those things!

Turbos do funny things. Its a small engine(2.4L), although not small for a 4 cyl.

Honda's 2.4L 4cyl in the TSX is rated 200hp. The best Dodge could do was 30hp more with a turbo?

my 2.4 is only 140 :(

my 99 cherokee has 340 hp out of its inline six with a supercharger and a few little bolt ons :) and yes a supercharger was actually made for the the amc 242.
