Oh wow....another K surfaces near my office.

Postby 89ARIES » Wed Mar 02, 2011 11:41 pm

I saw blowing by a 1986-1989 Plymouth Reliant Coupe blue on Victory this afternoon. So, now to date I have run into about 10 or so K-cars near my office since moving to this new location in November. They are around out there. A new territory to explore. Just no 1st gens. 8-)

Funny,back in the day,before late 84,I absolutely loved the Aries slatted Mirada/Magnum/400 style painted grille.
When the 85s were announced (I worked at a Chrysler dealer,and we got advance product info),I was flat out laughing at the nose job the 85s got.Particularly dizzing the Aries grille with the gunsight crosshairs.My exact words....."They ruined that car,they wont sell any".After getting used to the family's new 85 Aries SE,I grew to accept the smoother nose,and realized how crude the 81-84 car looked overall.The sharp cut rear fenders,the paint that always peeled off the wavy bumper covers,the flimsy cloth seating areas,the hard plastic steering wheel,the chrome wheelwell trim and rub strips that trapped dirt and pine needles behind,the stark dash cluster,the prop rod hood,the base wheels with tin center plate that dented so easily,the silver wheels that rusted instantly....no,I grew to accept and downright favor the 85-89 look.It helped that the 85 Lancer was styled so much like the Aries,I always liked the Lancer/GTS,and felt the Ks were their little brothers (that were a lot cheaper to buy).
I respect the 81-84s,but will always favor the 85-89s...they made the "best,better"...The "Super Ks".....
