This next car comes as a tip from Matt V who writes: The dream of 80s faux-wood alive today. The dream of 80s faux-wood alive today. Oh yeah. This is the dream. The K-car club dream that won’t stop. Find this 1984 Chrysler Town & Country offered for $6950 in Redwood City, CA via craigslist. […]
eaders of this website will remember K-Cargate — which started when someone here compared driving a K-Car to purgatory, continued when the president of the Chrysler K-Car Club of America defended K-cardom in the comments, and wrapped up with an eloquent treatise on the Thin Line Between Hate and Meh by Kaibeezy. This was a long time ago, but I have to say that finally we’ve got a K-car that can redeem the brand and bring that feeling of Mehate to Melove.

Dr Henry Jekyll: I love this next car, it is so well preserved for a Chrysler Imperial. Mr Ed Hyde: Ugg, 24k miles. Frankly I’m shocked that anyone could stand this miserable pile of Chrysler K-Platform junk for 24 miles, much less 24,000. Dr Jekyll; Hold up there old chap, this car has a wicked sweet chrome grill and functioning pop-up headlights, and the burgundy interior is as delightful as a trip down Dean Street in London. Mr Hyde: You must be mad, somebody paid the equivalent of $50k in today’s money for this pile of slushbox shifted 147 horsepower V6 garbage and I’d pay that much to NOT drive it.

Something must have been in the electrons at the May 2020 Barrett-Jackson online auction that closed the other day because somebody paid a scandalous $20,350.00 for an ’84 Dodge Daytona Turbo. It wasn’t even a Shelbyfied version and the trunk wasn’t full of Breitling watches, so I don’t know what to say. I thought that this […]
The daddy of the modern minivan was built on a modified version of Chrysler’s K-Car platform with which it shared engines and much running gear, but the backbone was something that Lee Iacocca and Hal Sperlich called the T-115 platform…which was just a beefy version of the K-car. The Chrysler minivan was billed as an […]
I’m not ashamed of my love of the Buick Skylark. It is such a piece of automotive history — from the beginning when it shared a platform with the Pontiac Tempest and Olds F-85, and then when it was another piece of the GM A-body arsenal — it has always been such a badass piece […]
The Dodge 600 was yet another K-Car from those wacky Chrysler product planners who somehow thought that if you didn’t want an Aries or a Diplomat, you might accidentally buy one of these. How much drugs did people take in the 1980s anyway?!?! Find this 1987 Dodge 600 SE offered for $1750 located in Seattle, WA […]
Who doesn’t want a turbocharged car that is a few decades old and dirt cheap? Modern cars might get better fuel economy and last longer between rebuilds…but nothing beats a simple boosted 4-banger for cheap fun and today, tipper Matt C sent in the following trio of turbocharged terrors. Words by Matt: First up […]
If cars had spirit Animals, there are a few that are easy. The Dodge Viper is a poisonous snake, the Ford Mustang is a wild pony, any Lamborghini is an angry bull. But what about cars where the make/model name doesn’t make it so easy; Mazda MX-5 Miata is a domesticated house cat, the Ford […]
You probably won’t impress your neighbors or country club members driving the fastest four door sedan sold in the USA for 1991. The Spirit R/T also has the distinction of being the quickest K-car ever produced by Chrysler which is akin to being the valedictorian of summer school. The Spirit doesn’t have sexy bodywork, but […]
