Re: Dakota R/T vs. GMC PSSSSyclone

I also kept the cost of the R/T down. The MSRP on a 1991 Syclone was nearly $26K and for the 92-93 Typhoon it was near $30K...that makes $20K for a 1998 R/T RC look like a pretty good deal. Also, insurance is pretty high on the Syclone & Typhoon. I almost bought a '91 Syclone before I bought my R/T and the insurance was going to be cheaper on the R/T. Plus, I also need to tow a trailer and you can't tow w/ the syclones!

Yeah , if they made it too big-n-bad from the showroom , the insurance
industry would be looking for a rope for our beloved R/Ts at this very
moment . If ya think about it , that may have been a very wise move .
