Cool! My car's birthday is sometime in September 1988. It is going to be 20 years old! Joke: Did you know that since most cars are junked by 20 years, I estimate that a car is 100 car years old by 20. Every year for a person is 5 years for a car. Therefore, a 15 year old car is 75! If you take real good care of your car, it could live to be 500 years old! That is 100 years for us.

By the way, the VERY last K car rolled off the assembly line on December 9th, 1988 in Toluca Mexico for the 89 model year. It was an 89 Aries. After December, all K cars will be over 20 years old.

My Dodge 600's is April 12, 1986, The Plymouth Acclaim's is Jan. 24, 1989. My former 1982 New Yorker's is June 29, 1982, the crazy thing about that is I was born on June 29, 1986! :shock:

Not a K-car, but my 68 Plymouth Fury was Sept/Oct 1967, same year I graduated from school. I am thinking of trying to take it to my next class reunion, as it was built only like 3 or 4 months after we all graduated. Kind of a rolling reminder of the way we were.
