There is a way of presenting barebones without looking cheap, and I'm not sure that many have figured out how to do that yet.
GTS is definitely the best looking car Chrysler/Dodge/MOPAR/whateverotherbrandthatcompanyownedorowns ever.

The gearing definitely doesn't suit many people's needs (ie. roadcourse drivers). But I really enjoyed it, there wasn't a lot of wheel spin in first, rarely any in second, for highway it would net near 30mpg, and when doing pulls against other cars with more power, the gearing would save the Viper and let it sit next to/stay ahead of cars with 50-100whp more, mostly because they would have to shift so often (aerodynamics played a decent part in it too).

Interior. . . we've done this too many times.

The other cool thing that genII cars can do
