I feel sorry for you guys sometimes, those taillights are awful and US bumpers... shudder.jpg
But, then I remember that you got 2.6L widebody Starions and get jealous again. lol
On topic, was it this shape?http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt29 ... G_0533.jpghttp://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt29 ... G_0526.jpghttp://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt29 ... G_0522.jpg
Or this shape?http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt29 ... CF3325.jpghttp://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt29 ... CF3324.jpg
Both of those are Australian-market Mitsubishi Scorpions, hence the minor visual differences to the US-market Plymouth Sapporo/Dodge Challenger. Basically a 4th gen Galant hardtop (or 3rd gen, in the case of the second example).
They're RWD with G54B power, and IMO yes, worth looking into. Plenty of torque, handle reasonably well and they aren't a bad looking car. Might be hard to get parts for though, as from what I understand they're pretty rare over there.
That said, pretty much everything bar the IRS (Sapporo/Challenger are live axle) can be taken from a Starion, and is an upgrade to boot. So mechanically it's easy. It's stuff like interior bits, body panels etc that are a pain.
Also, properly tall folks might have an issue with headroom, I'm 6'5 and my head clears the roof in mine by less than half an inch. Starion seats and rails bolt in, and drop the seating position by an inch or so.
