This weeks car review

Would you like to have an Alfa Romeo? Well you can. It’s called the Dodge Dart, and it’s actually a rebadged Alfa Romeo Giulietta. In my senior year in high school, I got a 1970 Dodge Dart. This car is not that car. You can read about it here.

  • What I don’t get is why call it a Dart?  We had one when I was a kid, and the only thing this has in common is it’s also a sedan.  It doesn’t even look like a Dart.  It’s a completely different vehicle.  It’s a DINO.

  • One thing about the 60s and early 70s (70-71) muscle cars is none of them had handling worth spit.
    For a while (1971) I had a ’67 Mustang with the 351ci V-8 that guzzled gas at the rate of one gallon every 12-14 miles, but did 0-60 in about 6.5 seconds (without blowing the engine). It handled/cornered like a sponge.
    On the other hand, my 2002 Maxima with 3.5L did 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, handled like a F1 by comparison, and got 24-26 MPG.
    Ahhh…the mediocre old days.
     

  • While buying a “pre-owned” Jeep, the wife, son and I tried out one in the showroom.
    Biggest problem … we hit our heads on the ceiling … scratch Dodge Dart
