Hi everyone, LA Times today did a review on our car. To say he loved it would be an understatement. The title of the article was "Poetry in Motion". You can see it at www.latimes.com/highway1[:D][:D]

I am not sure stating that the Chrysler Crossfire is an SLK in disguise is a good thing[xx(]

"If you should long for the car of last year,

There's really no cause for shedding of tears.

You can still find the car you so much admire.

It's under the skin of the Chrysler Crossfire!"

Oh, your right! Should have read more carefully. Feel better now that I realize I didn't pay $20,000 more for the same car[8D]

An SLK is a car with a folding metal roof, the Crossfire is not.

Saying that the Crossfire is "an SLK in disguise" is as nonsensical as saying a VW Golf is an Audi TT in disguise.

I think it is a reference to the fact that the crossfire uses some old R170 components; specifically the dash center ones I believe...[:0]

...dash centre, 3.2 engine, gearbox, suspension, most running gear, etc. etc. - a sheep in sheep's clothing[:0]
