Some People Have All The Luck...

Tam gets vintage Alfas and 'Stangs when she goes out around town.

I get K-Cars.


Spotted (semi-) locally a couple months ago. It's an mid-80s Chrysler Town & Country in off-the-showroom-floor condition. I can only assume it's driven by one of the local Q-tips, most likely to church and back each Sunday, and most likely has less than 75K on the clock...Seriously, for a car of this vintage in New England, this is an astonishing find - I had several cars in this time period that had significant rot (never mind rust) within five years of date of manufacture.

No word on whether it had the Hemi or not...

That is all.

I remember an article in a magazine (dont recall which, some motorhead mag) anout the worlds cheapest 13 second dragster. They took that same car, with the turbocharged 4banger and turned in some crazy quarter miles. I want to say modifications came in at abt $500 (including some required safety gear). Took a sawzall to the interior and stripped off all the extra weight, then wired the waste gate shut on the turbo. When it blew up at the end of the day, they stripped the safety gear, crushed the car, and went home happy.

Dude, it that a Pontiac Aztek in front of it? That's a double score there. A K car and the car that killed the Pontiac brand all in one pic!

The only thing worse than Chrysler cars was Chrysler outboard motors.

The Germans called the K car, Das Box.

I know so many friends who got a K-Car as their first ride, and many of them BEGGED the wretched beasts to die....and the K-Car refused.

They're probably still tooling around today.

The Federal Protective Service had Plymouth Reliant K-car police vehicles.
Once the light bar, siren, radios (2) and trunk gear was installed the vehicle was unable to run with A/C and go Code 3.
Parts (handles, knobs, mirrors, horn buttons) would fall off at random times. The shift sergeant ordered us NOT to leave the crap on his desk.
