Pros: "True head turner. Topless is the only way to go."

Cons: "Challnge to get in and out. Low front end."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car was the American experiment gone crazy. Proof Americans can build a true head turner. Only disappointment no V-8 or manual transmission. Car has plenty of get up and go but is more for show then top end. Difficult to leave car anywhere. Going to a restaurant be prepared for attention. Best driven on a Sunday then garaged."

Pros: "almost affordable unique truly limited edition"

Cons: "difficult entry/exit, really low front clearance"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"great car for seriously warm states. must be driven open to be appreciated. absolutely horrible city mileage but excellent highway mileage. Has little storage but that's not what this car is. Almost all prowlers are garage queens with relatively low mileage taken out for short drives just to make every red blooded male over 11 years old point and drool."

"A Prowler is an exotic automobile that is as reliable as a daily driver. This is a really fun automobile to drive that always draws attention. I doubt that any mainstream manufacturer will ever make such an automobile again."

"The Plymouth Prowler was very cheap and brook down, in my case 5 time in one year ( meaning I had to put over $600 dollars in it every time) depending on the individual some might think it look “sweet” in my case it had a respectable look and flare to it, nevertheless it was certainly NOT worth my money. I would however recommend the Mercedes C300 Luxury Sedan runs like a beauty and is definitely stylish, superior quality too."

"The Prowler, in my opinion, achieved everything the designers wanted. A modern day version of the early street rod. It's not only stylish, its comfortable and has all the modern safety features. Some will complain that it is under powerered and should have been powered by the eternal V8. However, the 3.5 Liter V6 provides more than enough power for any street rod. I was particularly impressed by the interior design and quality. Th eseats are more comforatble than my expensive Mercedes Benz SL600. And talk about fun to drive--it turns heads everywhere it goes. This car is certain to be a classic of significance given its brief and limited production."
