And like Dave, I thought it ran like one of these:



However, the girl I was dating had one of these:



As you might imagine, quite often I gave up on the Mustang for the Chevy on date night.

Looks like if you want one all you have to do is hand over your Ferrari + a whole lot of scheckles and you too can drive one of these.

So, the 'new' Stratos:



Or the original Stratos:



Which will it be?
