Chrysler/Plymouth Prowler

One thing that is interesting about living in a new area for a while is the difference in cars. You would rarely see one of these Chrysler/Plymouth Prowlers in Utah. But I see a lot of very expensive and or rare cars here in Annapolis. I saw this one parked in front of the Maryland State House in Annapolis, Maryland.
The Plymouth Prowler, later the Chrysler Prowler, is a retro-styled production car manufactured and marketed from 1997 to 2002 by DaimlerChrysler, based on the 1993 concept car of the same name. 
The Prowler was offered in a single generation in a front-engine, rear-drive, rear-transmission configuration — with an overall production of 11,702. See Wikipedia: Plymouth Prowler.
I also see quite a number of Range Rovers and few old sports cars driving the streets. There are far fewer pickup trucks but SUVs seem to be the most common type of vehicle. This probably reflects the reason why Ford Motor Company recently announced that they were discontinuing the manufacture of all their sedan automobiles. See "Ford to stop selling sedans in North America in face of unstoppable crossover onslaught."
