• I recall driving one of these, it was a truly '60s experience. The cowl shake and general feeling of structural wobbliness was straight out of a past era.

  • I just remember being appalled at how enormous these things are. At 3/4 scale, they might have been cool. Maybe we should give one to Smokey Yunick, and then turn our backs….

    • They're not actually that huge, they're smaller than a Lightning. That isn't to say they FEEL smaller than a Lightning.

    • I'm with you Bobinott. Thought they were cool until I stood in front of one at a dealership, couldn't help but think how wide they were.

  • I didn't realize you could get these with a stick. Unfortunately that 's the entire list of cool things about this. It's shitty as a car, it's shitty as a truck, it has that weird bubble pretend to be retro thing going on, and I personally find them hideous. If someone wanted to give this to me I'd be happy, I'd also be ripping the drive train out and scrapping the body. And I'd scrap it by throwing it in the back of a real truck.

  • I think the worst thing about the prowler was when the did a show car with a jeep v8. They said it bolted right it. So why didnt it come that way? It wouldnt have mattered if it wasnt any quicker or it handled worse. Ok it probably would have still been lame, but it wouldnt have been v6 hot rod lame.

  • A friend of ours had one of these and my wife accidentally backed into the rear corner last year. Finding a rear fender panel and rear bumper fascia for this thing was next to impossible. Insurance company said GM had one in the U.S. and one in Canada and the cost was insane for an OEM part of this age… just over $4,100 just for the fender piece alone allegedly. Rep said he's never seen anything like it on an American car… outside of replacing a carbon fiber hood on a 2015 Dodge Viper.
