Let's hope the Camaro marketing is more discreet than this

Jalopnik posted an article about this...er...classic ad for the Plymouth Turismo shown during the first MTV Video Music Awards. Warning...unhealthy dosage of the 1980s ahead

I test drove one once when I was 17. I pushed the gas pedal all the way to the floor and just waited patiently for several seconds for it to start moving noticeably. If that commercial's song started playing on the radio when I got on the gas, by the time it ended, I might have gotten the car up to 40. Slowest car I've ever driven.

Holy crap, I was 10... I actually owned the sister car, Turismo 2.2

I bought it for $700 in 94 with my graduation money.

Talking

to be fair the duster i bought was a lemon but i drove the sister car the dodge charger and the charger when i drove it was less than 10 years old and was well maintained and all the stuff worked. i wish i would have bought the charger, it was burgundy with burgundy interior, aluminum wheels off of a dodge Daytona and a sunroof you had to rotate a knob in front of it to open it . with minor tweaks you can get a nice little pocket rocket out of them the same turbo inline fours that were in a lot of the Chrysler cars of that era put out decent power (i saw a guy who had one bumped up to 300hp in his omni glh ).

My folks had a 2.2 Turbo Chrysler Laser (Daytona clone, before the DSM-based Plymouth Laser) and that thing was tons of fun. They sold it not long after I got my license though I'd like to have one again.
