Having been exposed to these, I wanted one when I graduated from law school in 1997. Went to Stohlman in MD - they had about 10 of them, including the white top-of-the-line model I wanted. The sticker was north of 38 grand, and I told them I’d drive it home that day for about $30-31K plus tax and tags. They tried all kinds of closes, including a slightly lower price with expensive dealer financing, but I had my own. I wound up walking out and bought a ‘97 Taurus SHO the next day.
I drove by their lot maybe 6 months later, and they still had 7 or 8 of them sitting there, although the one I would have bought was gone (probably). Still regret not getting the SVX or stepping up to a Supra.
