Somebody Call Montezuma, The Conquistador is Here!

So, carrying on with Jalopnik's Maximum StarQuest Day, we found this '88 Chrysler Conquest over at CarDomain. A fella named Romeo breaks down the slightly-over-10k he dumped into the machine. Mods include a C02 intercooler sprayer, forged pistons, hardened rods and iridium plugs. One thing not on the doomed romantic's itemized list, however, are the flamed floormats. How much did those set him back? And why, oh why, did he ruin a perfectly good Conquest with them?
