Most of you approved of the super-beater '70 Skylark
We saw another Dart in this series just last week
We've seen an Olds Delta 88
The pre-Malaise Chevelle is a good example of a once-ubiquitous car that has largely disappeared from the streets, due to a one-two-three-punch combo of vulnerability to rust, suitability for hoonage, and high collector value (the same three items are also applicable to the first-gen Camaro). We saw a '71 Chevelle… »
The '65 Barracuda
Those tiny 14" wheels that Chrysler put on the Volare? Pizza cutters! Shopping-cart wheels! Try adding another ten inches of diameter to a Volare's wheels and you'll finally fill up those unsightly wheelwells, as we can can see in this '76. You need to keep the air shocks fully inflated in order to keep rear wheel… »
We love our Chrysler A-bodies around here, no doubt about that. For that reason, I'm overjoyed to have finally found one of the later A-body-based Barracudas in Alameda. Cool as the 'fastback Valiant'
Is it really possible that it's been two months since our last Mopar A-body
After two consecutive days of old Junkyard Find Dodges, we might as well see yet another one. It's a sign of how many 60s Chrysler A-bodies were manufactured (and how rugged they were) that you see more of them in the junkyard today than you do, say, 20-year-old Hyundai Excels. This one is a bit new to have the… »
A while back, I promised we'd see more Chrysler A-bodies... but it's been over a month since we saw our last one
Looking at the Alameda cars I've already photographed, I realize that I have shots of six Chrysler A-bodies stored up. This wouldn't be a big deal, but I've only shown a single A-body
While a number of Los Jalops agree that the GM A-bodies were the best-sorted and best-looking vehicles of the musclecar era, and 1970 is regarded by numerous muscle-heads as the platform's finest year, both in terms of styling — and certainly in terms of power — here's another question. Which example is the trashiest?… »
We went into this post with every intention of deriding this Olds Cutlass highriser. But we've made a turnabout in the past few minutes, owing to our fondness for Hawaiian Punch and A-body Cutlesses. Sure, this thing has rims the diameter of wagon wheels, sure it has an interior only Spiderman could love, sure it has… »
I've been seeing many '73-and-newer El Caminos on Alameda's streets, but the earlier generations of truck-bed-equipped Chevrolet cars are harder to find. They tended to get beaten to death via overloading and/or hooned into oblivion, but this one is still alive and kicking in Alameda's East End.
