He was a cool dude when it came to getting Chrysler going etc, but the K car was a real piece of $hit. We had a company car that was a K car, so it's not just my opinion about them. That engine ate camshafts also, after about 40 K miles. Consumer Reports gave them a good write up, when they were new, but that was before any mileage on them.
Calling our cars crap tells me that they were just trying hard to sell their junk.

Kind of a prophetic video, that second one, especially since it was produced by Pontiac.  Just a few years later they (along with Buick and Oldsmobile) were swallowed up into the "corporate" generic GM business model.  The final scene...unceremoniously  discarded by the brass when things got tough.  *sigh*

And you forgot, the average person can't fix their car anymore....if it dosent start call a tow truck, its more than likely not a mechanical problem you can see to fix.Mad

Not only that but if you do happen to know what the problem is & can fix it you have to move 10 things out of the way in order to get to it. Rolling Eyes 

There's nothing like old cars.

I was not about to deny anyone who had not seen one the joy of the K car in all its glory.  If he hadn't gotten to suffer through them in real life, he can at least sympathize with those of us who had. Smile

Although I think I just got banned from Google image search.

I also like how Chrysler chose to put some of its most memorable model names on them...Charger & Daytona.  It always makes me laugh when someone says the new chargers aren't "real" chargers, they choose to forget those turds existed.
