Chrysler introduced its own electronic voice alert system. Including an EVA in the 1984 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible was partially to justify its high price tag, and consumers totally bought in. In addition to having voice alerts, the 1984 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible featured an electronic travel computer that displayed an approximation of how long one could drive without running out of gas, average driving speed, and average gas mileage.

I think that I would rather drive the Plymouth Fury ex cop car.
Don’t like convertibles?
If you haven’t watched the Petrolicious.com short video on the Chrysler LeBaron treat yourself to six minutes of pure excellence at the link below. Nice to see that some of the folks dedicated to overwrought fawning over classic cars also have a sense of humor too.
And I’ll be darned — “rejuvenize” is a real word.
What do you call the faux-wood enthusiast faction of the K-car club?
A splinter group.
When Lee Iacocca drove his, what was he?
Chairman of the Board.
How did he pay for it?
With a plank check.
And what do you play on the tape player?
Seriously? No one mentioned George Costanza and Jon Voight? Tho I give Hugh props……..clevah!
I was thinking more Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
My mom had an 84 LeBaron 4 door for a while when I was a kid. “Your door is ajar” would always make me giggle.
