If Pontiac ever reproduces that here along side the G8 sedan I have a feeling its going to go the same way the Magnum did, out of production in 2 years.

Yep, Hustler is definitely smoking some pole...

My next car... Well it's going to be a Ferrari 308 GTB or Ferrari 328 GTB. Although I may have to settle for a 308 GTS Quattrovalve.

The Magnum is being cut out of necessity though, GM can afford to produce/import this.

I assume a 5.7 V8 in that bad boy? Just like a GTO with 2 passengers and room for ****. Nice daily driver.

Hustler, go turbocharge something.

looks like I'm scooping up an early 1.8 motor saturday, and dropping it off at the machine shop monday morning. Track day on saturday, parking the car in my shop / parent's garage sunday and starting the tear down.

Why cant they afford it? Dwindling sales have anything to do with it?

Chrysler's been a losing proposition for a while. That's why Daimler Benz dropped them like they're hot when the opportunity came up. I think they even took a loss in getting rid of them beyond the flagging sales and shitty quality they introduced to the Benz line. Funny enough, Cerberus, a private equity firm, bought them up... who also happens to own 51% of GMAC finance.
