Convertible Car for sale by Classic Auto Showplace, Ltd. in Troy, Michigan 48083
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

General Prowler Info From Wikipedia: The Plymouth Prowler, later the Chrysler Prowler, is a retro-styled production car manufactured and marketed from 1997 to 2002 by DaimlerChrysler, based on the 1993 concept car of the same name. The Prowler was offered in a single generation in a front-engine, rear-drive, rear-transmission configuration - with an overall production of 11,702. Chrysler engineers were given free rein to design whatever they wanted in a hot rod or sportster type vehicle. Chryslers design and international director Thomas C. Gale said his love for 1930s-era hot rods inspired Chryslers latest design triumph, the retro-styled Plymouth Prowler.1 #fn1 Gale, who has a hotted-up 1932 Ford in his garage approved the hotrod-inspired Plymouth Prowler as the companys follow-up show-stopper to the Dodge Viper.2 #fn2 An early influence is credited to a Chrysler-sponsored project at the Art Center College of Design that resulted in a thesis by Douglas Chip Foose that included drawings of a retro-roadster.3 #fn3 Foose designed it as a coupe for Chrysler to begin with but modified it to a roadster version.4 #fn4 One of the most striking design features of the Prowler are the open, Indy racer-style front wheels. The Prowler featured a powertrain from Chryslers LH-cars, a 24-valve, 3.5 L Chrysler SOHC V6 engine producing 214 hp (160 kW; 217 PS) at 5850 rpm. For the 1999 model year, the engine was replaced with a more powerful, aluminum-block, 253 hp (189 kW; 257 PS) at 6400 rpm version of the engine. Both engines were coupled to a four-speed Autostick semi-automatic transmission. The transmission was located at the rear of the vehicle and joined to the engine by a torque tube that rotated at engine speed, an arrangement similar to that used by the C5 Corvette, Porsche 944, and Alfa Romeo 75, and helped to facilitate a desirable 50-50 front-rear weight distribution. The Prowler was the first rear-wheel-drive Plymouth since the 1989 Plymouth Gran Fury and would stand as the last Plymouth model with that layout. While criticized for having only a V6 engine, Chryslers High Output 3.5 had a horsepower rating similar to (or higher than) the companys Magnum V8s of that era. While not making nearly as much torque as a V8, Prowlers light weight helped to achieve rapid off-the-line acceleration. The car prominently featured aluminum construction, in many cases adhesively bonded, chiefly in the chassis. The body was produced in Shadyside, Ohio, and the car was assembled by hand at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant (CAAP) in Detroit, Michigan.
