    I'd get one if the engine and handling match the styling.

    That one looks OK but I don't want a rebadged Chrysler 300 for the other models. It's just not going to work, especially with the small engines that the Italians are fond of.

    May as well. 300 is a rebodied Magnum, charger, camaro or whatever. Crossfire was a rebodied slk. Sure there are a few others.

    They just have to shit it up with alot of plastic and ill fitting gaps before they can call it an American car though. [​IMG]

    They will screw with the seats to fit fat american asses and soften the suspension and driving feel. They'll also probably make all the models bigger too adding weight and unnecessary size to appeal to middle America.

    Not new- it's been discussed in the industry for several months.

    Crossfire has some of the worst reviews ever, though:

    Yeah...too bad; if it were only a matter of slapping Chrysler badges over Alfa this would be something to be excited about.

    It'll still be waaaay better than any Chrysler.

    Why do we need anything badged as Chryslers? I wonder if anyone ever thought of that. It would solve many problems.
