    That car was teamed by SCCA champion Erich Heuschele and Dalmier-Chrysler Head Engine Developement engineer, David Zelkowski. They actually finished 6th overall in that hemi powered beast. We beat Heuschele two years when we finished 6th in 2003, but Zelkowski was teamed with a Michelin test driver in a nice viper and won it in 2002 (we got 4th) and 3rd in 2003.[size=-1][/size]

    Sounds more like a Acura TL or Cadillac CTS than a 300C, both of which I've driven numerous times since they debuted. The 300C is very nice inside, as are all the LX cars. I would hope some vehicles hailing from Europe and carrying stickers of $20k or so more would be slightly nicer inside. :mamoru:
