    Anyone know anything about these cars? I found a 1994 probe GT for sale for $700 with a lot of miles on it. I was wondering if this would be a good buy for a car that has some perfomance but has a reliable engine. I comute almost 75miles everyday and its hurting my sol, but cant stand slow ass cars.

    other consideration 1987 Volvo 760 turbo sedan <- turbo and lux

    I'm just being a bastard about it :D

    My personal experiences with Ford aren't that good, but it dosen't mean the entire company is the same

    Maybe...your friend can't drive? I've seen turbo 2.5s run 12s. So um...tell your friend to learn how to drive and then say "my friend ran this with this.."
