Lorens' .sig reminded me that I have had this thought in the back of my 
head for quite a while now.

Since the drivetrain of the Chrysler LH car has the engine longitudinally 
mounted in front of the front axle (ala Audi), and since the chassis is 
one of the best handling 4-door sedans on the market (a little known 
secret since most of their customers don't drive like that anyway) and 
since the body of every variant is drop dead gorgeous, I thought that it 
would be a perfect candidate for an Audi Quattro drivetrain implant.  I 
had thought of adding an Audi V-6 quattro drivetrain, since the I-5 
prolly wouldn't fit.  Twin turbo it, and add the shifter and clutch 
pedal, and you would have an awesome AWD sedan!  Not that I don't like 
Audi styling, but the LH car is just so nicely done... and its handling, 
with a set of decent shocks, springs, and wheels/tires, is incredible.

haha...  more dreaming I guess.
