I guess I should have said what kind of car it is. It's a 2005 Crossfire Limited Series, not the RT (I looked at the RT, but the insurance premiums would be enormous, and with my driving record, prohibitive, LOL). Except for the first car I got when turning 16, I've always driven German cars, BMW in particular. I never thought I'd by a Chrysler, but I'm driving one now. it's based of the Mercedes SLK, and is made primarily by Chrysler-Daimler in Germany. In fact the data sheet on the vehicle shows that over 90% of parts and labor is German. It really is a nice car. My first car when I turned 16 was a Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD. That thing was the worst new car I've ever had. It was really comfortable, don't get me wrong, and asthetically, it was a sharp looking SUV at the time (1996), but that thing was CONSTANTLY in the shop. And most of the problems centered around that damn information screen. It was always beeping that something was wrong. And the most annoying thing was when the hood sensor was a mess. Everytime I hit a bump, the information screen would beep and say, hood ajar! I took it in 4 times to be fixed. Service was horrible, long, and it got to the point that I'd just turn up my CD player loud enough that I couldn't hear it beeping. After that, I hated all products associated with Chrysler/Jeep. Now that Chrysler bought Daimler, their engineering, design, and features have immensely improved. I think that their total client base is changing, hence the rise in their upper-end products. They've got that 4-door sedan that sort of looks like a Bently, and people that have bought them, love them. I seriously can say that my car is AWESOME. The interior features are a little more basic than my 330Ci was, but in all honesty, this car drives like a true solid sports car. You don't get that "American" sports car feel or sound. It's definitely German, and the sound is that "Oh so sexy European Purr to it."

Phil its the SRT-6, that is the one you are talking about. Your Limited has a 6 speed manual while the SRT-6 has the boring 5 Speed Automatic with Auto shift (BORING). That being said I just bought a Dodge Magnum RT with a Hemi V8, I was going to get it in Red but caved for a Black one with Gray Leahter, as soon as I get my laptop back from the shop I will post a pic, probably tomorrow or Friday.

Like you said, it is a German car. Even the A/C and radio unit are straight out of the Mercedes-Benz SLK (1st generation). The only thing Chrysler about the car is the design. It is not built by DaimlerChrysler, though. It built by German coachbuilder Karaman, and everything about it is German, except the Chrysler badge (well, actually, even the Chrysler badge is German now).

The only problem with that Lincoln advertisement, in retrospect, is the third-to-last sentence:
Some luxury cars are smaller than they were last year.
As you very well know, Lincoln had to eat those words some 3 years later.
Quoting Vaporlock (Reply 9): my car has 89,889 miles on it...thats all! But it is a 305 V6
305 V6 ???? That does not compute!
Phyllis, it's either got the Chevy-built 305 V8 (I guess the Olds-built 307 V8 was only offered on the Custom Cruisers for that year but I could be wrong) or the smaller V6; which is the 3.8L (231 cid). If you're sure that it's a 6-banger, then you have the 3.8L.

It's too bad Lincoln didn't use the turbine aluminum rim and wide fixed glass model for that ad.
In two weeks I'll be going up to Sacramento for the Lincoln Continental Car Owners Club annual meet.
They'll have people from all over the USA & Canada with models from 1924 til now.
