I own a 2015 FIAT. FIAT stands for Fix It Again Tony (Must be said with a heavy Italian accent). LOL.

Hey, it's my understanding that the new FIATS are actually pretty decent cars.
By the way, here's an interesting and somewhat amusing fact.
The new Chrysler Pacifica minivans use a 3.6 liter V6 which is also offered as a base powerplant in the Maserati Ghibli.
Maserati uses Ferrari heads on their version, and they slap twin turbos on it, bringing the base Chrysler naturally aspirated HP figure of 300 up to 450.

But at its heart that Maserati V6 is a Chrysler Pentastar engine.
And that is why our 2017 Pacifica goes like a raped ape.



Definitely NOT a soccer mom mobile.

My favorite car I ever owned was a 1972 Mercury Montego, which had a 351 Cleveland High Output block in it. Was a semi-hemi. Ready for the punch line? It had an automatic transmission. Never figured out why, but I could lay rubber in passing gear. LOL.

Auto trans in a Montego? Not all that surprising. The Montego was the Mercury version of Starsky and Hutch...basically a Gran Torino Sport package with a Mercury badge.

I'm pretty sure that it was the Lima based 3-8-5 engine series that were the semi-hemis...think Boss 429.



But the 351 Cleveland definitely was a mighty contender, no doubt about it. I'm betting you had a 4:11 diff in that rig, or maybe a 3.73.
