We’ve seen this ’85, this ’89, this ’64, this ’92, and this ’82 in the series, and today I’ve bagged a K-platform (actually C-platform, but it’s a K at heart) ’90 New Yorker Landau in Colorado.
Yes, the hokey vinyl-covered landau roof survived into the 1990s in Detroit; as far as I can tell, the last year for a New Yorker with this option was 1993. That’s right, we haven’t even gone 20 years since Chrysler killed the vinyl landau roof!
The 1988-93 New Yorker was really just a pimped-out version of the not-quite-Superfly-grade Dodge Dynasty. When I launch my Spec Dynasty racing series and become wealthier than Big Bill France ever was, I will allow the Dynasty-sibling New Yorkers to race as well.
Does Chrysler still use these crystal Pentastar emblems on any door panels these days? I’m assuming that they bought 50 million of them back in 1988 and still have warehouses full of the things.
Much as we make fun of these cars, they turned out to be surprisingly comfortable on the road, and not any less reliable than most of their Detroit competition.
You’ll find one in every car, kid. You’ll see.
