We’ve seen some serious Whorehouse Red interiors in this series— this ’80 Skylark, for example, or this ’83 Pulsar, or this 1993 Dynasty— but […]

Junkyard Find: 1990 Chrysler New Yorker Landau http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/12/junkyard-find-1990-chrysler-new-yorker-landau/ http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/12/junkyard-find-1990-chrysler-new-yorker-landau/#comments Tue, 11 Dec 2012 14:00:01 +0000 http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/?p=469742 My quest for junkyard Chrysler New Yorkers has become something of an obsession lately. 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.

Junkyard Find: 1983 Chrysler E-Class http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/11/junkyard-find-1983-chrysler-e-class/ http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/11/junkyard-find-1983-chrysler-e-class/#comments Mon, 05 Nov 2012 14:00:42 +0000 http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/?p=465840 We might as well follow up last week’s Aries K wagon Junkyard Find with another member of the Chrysler-saving K family. I’ve been intermittently fascinated by the E-Class, so this Crusher-bound example in Denver caught my eye. We laugh at the idea of a blinged-out K-Car with a vaguely Benzified name today, but the E-Class […]

In fact, this ’83 Aries was the last “pure” K Car we’ve seen in this series. When I see […]
