Ahh, there you are! Been thinking of you lately since I got into a MVA on September 19 which caused the impact of my driver's side bumper into the rear fender area on the passenger side of the car which was doing a wide turn to do an illegal U.

So my door doesn't open, and I've been fortunate that I'm agile enough to crawl through the passenger side to get to the driver's seat.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this, since the other driver was without insurance; he had a warrant for arrest (DUI), and was not given permission to drive this car. It was his boyfriend who had permission, but had been drinking earlier in the day.

Thanks!

Hi to all; My apologies for being away for so long (really inactive) - it's been a heck of a year. Anyway, I live outside Boston, MA and own a 1985 Dodge 600 convertible,Garnet red w/ white top and seats; it's all original, just turned 34K miles. A good friend bought it in '85 (it was a twin to the one I owned at the time) and my parents(!) decided to buy it from him in November '86 when it had 19.6K miles. I always took care of it for them, and inherited it a few years ago. I use this as a driver during the good weather and have been storing it the last 5 winters. Prior to that it was in a garage 90% of the time in the winter anyway, so that's why it's in excellent shape. One thing I appreciate is how easy it is to work on, and it rides pretty nice.
My wife and I drive this around locally whenever we get the chance and the weather is nice; it's amusing the compliments we get from folks - it gets more respect now than it did when new!
BTW - how can I add pictures? I get "sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached".
I certainly plan on being more active here going forward. Thanks, Guy, for starting the site and really working to make a go of it.

Hello, my names is Lee... I guess I'm the new guy. I'm actually a FORD guy who's shop full of thunderbirds burnt to the ground. I ended up picking up this racy little convertible for a song...

it gets decent mileage, and I think I may keep it for awhile... I'm looking for a site to find info...

I remember reading about this club in HCC a while back and started looking for it recently.

At the moment, I don't own a K-Car but I've always been a big fan of them. We had a 1983 Aries wagon for nine years and 212,000 miles. It was ordered new by my dad at Deering-Cote Dodge in Marlborough, Ma, and we took delivery in late June, 1983, the day before the last day of second grade for me.

Mr. Deering remarked that it was the most unusual Aries he had seen. It was ordered with the Custom trim, with the nice velour buckets, the 14" wheels with wires and whitewalls, a bunch of odds and ends....and a 5-speed. Dad didn't like the automatic performance and didn't want a Japanese engine.

I find it amazing people did CFC on the pre-'85, which wasn't supposed to be allowed, unless dealers made some special arrangements for customers and just wholesaled the older cars that weren't eligible. The mileage you can get out of a K-Car is very good and to call them inefficient is quite foolish. People just trading in old cars because they were old was destructive to the used and collectible car marketplaces, especially considering the disastrous results for the lower-income, thrifty and people who might otherwise buy these vehicles for collecting or parts to keep others on the road.

I'm more of a GM guy, but I'd like a nice K wagon and I'm looking at one right now. My 1991 Caprice has terminal frame rot and an Aries/Reliant wagon are on the "seek out and possibly buy if the price is right" list. I like the idea of something that will reliably get 28-30 miles a gallon and be reasonably comfortable for commuting and an occasional trip.

I live in Marlborough, Ma. and like cars in general. I'm also a train fan. My other hobbies include woodworking, scale modeling, cooking, reading, music, architecture, photography, history, drawing, and a little travel. Work consists mostly of returning to school at the moment to be re-trained as a paralegal after several years in education.

Looking forward to getting to know people. Is there a chapter in New England as of now?
