You can get clunkers easy in the UK and in Europe but the taxes are a little bit steep so, that's the reason why the limit should be raised.

Can we open up the 12 hours of Sebrings to include the other Mopars on the same platform? A friend has a Breeze that can't be worth more than $500.

It needs classes for the older Satellite Sebring. I'd take extra time to locate a crap-tastic '75 model with plaid upholstery.
