Hi guys!
I'm a soon to be owner of a 1982 Dodge Aries Wagon! I'll be picking it up this Thursday from its current owner. My guess is, it's probably one of the only surviving first generation K cars on the road in West Michigan! :o

Hi @all,

Don't know if I'm right here for the first post.

My name is Frank an I live in Mid-Germany. So please don't wonder about poor english knowledge.
I' try my best to get better as when I was living a decade plus back in South-East-Asia...

First of all I'd like to say than I'm happy to find a site like this which is surporting (I mean:'helping')
those famous K-Cars I'm very fond of to keep them alive. (Again: Sorry for poor style and writing).

As it happened about a year ago, I was scaning Ebay (germany) for some interesting goods.
There was an K-Car to bid on. So I did, not knowing what was the outcome till today. It was a
Dodge 400, 1982, 2.2l conver auto in good shape and I loved it from first sight. Yes, it's mine now.

I went to sellers town (München, south germany) brougt it to my city (next to Hannover)
on own wheels. Engine sounded not well, but good enough to land at 'home'. Fuel cons
was o.k. so far, but power, accel. - forget it.

Anyhow, I'm just writing here to get beeing noticed as a forum new member.

And for sure, I have questions. Also I read a lot in here (noticing I'm not alone), got good
hinds and advices, but lake the fits to this 400 2.2l auto conv....

Is there anybody out there who has a similar model and would/could help me on point-down probs?

To all you out there: Thanks for enthusias****(?) for those cars. I try hard to keep her live...


Thanks,
Frank

Hello, to all, new to this site, may have joined too soon, I thought I had a deal on a really nice 82 Reliant, but it has not worked out, seller to be quite honest wants a lot more than its worth, and is kind of a turd to deal with.

That said I still like the cars, Had and 81 and and 82 brand new back in the day, and constantly wanted a Dodge 400 so bad back in the day, never got one.

I will check in now and then to see whats happening and if anyone comes up with a nice low miles 2 door. Also ordered the 1/24 scale Replica, shame they only did the 4 door and not the 2 door.

Hello club members. I am in the Big Sky country of Montana and I own a 1985 Chrysler New Yorker Turbo. She is a bit faded and needs a cosmetic do. Hope to make new friends, learn about my car and how to keep is looking and running great. And also to see what amazing rides you all have as well.

thanks for accepting us in the club. My husband and I just bought a 1983 Plymouth reliant, station wagon. It has 7,600 original miles. It is brand new inside and out. So far we love the car.

Just discovered this group after having owned a 1985 Lebaron Mark Cross convertible from 2003 until it was totaled by a (then) cousin, a Mercedes-Benz ML320 in 2009. I had purchased a 1986 Lebaron convertible for a parts car, but am now in the process of rebuilding it using the 2.2L Turbo II engine and modified A413 I had in the 85 car. I plan on some brake upgrades and If I can make it work, a 1989 J-body coupe dash and steering column so I can have full analog (still electronic though) gauges instead of the clunky K-car or wiggy digital options for these bodies.

I am going to be looking for some bits and pieces though as a bit of the exterior trim is either sun backed or damaged after 31 years.
