Plymouth Prowler


A stunning black car was parked in front of my usual coffee shop.  It looked like it had been rolled off the assembly line the day before, after countless hours spent buffing the paint job until it glistened.  The medallion said "Plymouth."  Years ago I had a Plymouth.  It was nothing like this one.


Plymouth built a few Plymouth Prowlers beginning in 1998.  They had a retro design and conjured up thoughts of street racing.  Regrettably, the engine was one of Chrysler's stock models, so the performance disappointed potential buyers who wanted blazing speed.  Chrysler pulled the plug in 2002.  
Someone in Naples takes VERY good care of this one.

I think it is a great looking car inspired by a Boyd Cottington hotrod design. The less than hotrod power was a problem partly corrected in 1999 with a 253 hp version of the V-6 motor. It did make a splash when introduced but Chrysler did not sell very many of them. Great to see this one looking so good.
