2002 Chrysler Prowler

I bought this car, because Chrysler was about to stop making them.  I watched them for a few years and enjoyed the looks of the car.  When I found out that they were going to be discontinued, I pulled the trigger and bought one.  I found a yellow one, which automatically makes it my wife’s car and she really enjoyed driving it.  We used to take it on weekend cruises and always had a great time with it.  You couldn’t make it an overnight trip, though.  The trunk was so small, that there wasn’t even room for my briefcase.

The car handled great, but I wasn’t thrilled with the motor.  I understood the space limitations with the narrow front end, but the 6 cylinder motor really didn’t give it enough power.  The only engine offered was a 253 HP 3.5 liter V6.  If they could have thrown in a small block V-8, it would have been a lot more fun.

As most auto enthusiasts know, the Prowler began life in 1997 as a Plymouth, but became a Chrysler model when the Plymouth brand was phased out after the 2000 model year. Chrysler-branded examples are less common, accounting for fewer than half of all the Prowlers produced.
