Boy, You Know There Ain't No Free Swinger Automatic Transmissions In…

Since my cultural knowledge has giant gaps when it comes to old TV shows, I have no idea whether the character of the super-stereotyped Southern Sheriff in this ad was lifted from a TV show or created from scratch for this ad. Either way, it appears that he's getting ready to put the Dodge dealer on the chain gang for… » 10/13/08 11:00am 10/13/08 11:00am

1961 Dodge Lancer 770 In Denver May Be Obama's Personal Campaign Vehicle

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition » 8/26/08 1:20pm 8/26/08 1:20pm, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the . It's since we've seen one of Denver's many cool street-parked cars, and what better place to look for one than right in the heart of the Democratic National Convention madness downtown?…

Even a Slant Six Couldn't Save It: 1966 Dodge Dart 270

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… » 2/13/08 2:00pm 2/13/08 2:00pm

Chrysler A-Body With Truck Bed Poll: Valiantpage or Demonpage?

We've seen all manner of Ford and GM cars with truck beds added, but it's not so easy to find Chrysler cars that have been so equipped. In fact, the last one we saw here was the Chargepage. But now our eagle-eyed readers have spotted not one but two truck-bed-havin' Chrysler A-bodies for sale on eBay, and we need to… » 1/14/08 10:30am 1/14/08 10:30am

1969 Dodge Dart GT Convertible, With Bonus DOTS Of The Week Poll

I've been guilty of Chrysler A-Body neglect once again, despite having quite the backlog of Dart and Valiant photos in my DOTS collection. This isn't because they weren't great cars for their time- cheap, reliable transportation, and pretty quick when equipped with V8 power- but, because I see so many of them in… » 12/07/07 9:00am 12/07/07 9:00am

Before the Corvette Z06 Speedboat there was the Charger Runaboat

While they may not have the obsessive mimicry of the Corvette Speed Boat, Chrysler produced a rather large line of their own boats, including the pair of Chargers pictured above. The folks at ALLPAR have a great history of models from 1969, which included popular models such as the Valliant, Fury, Barracuda, Dart,… » 12/04/07 9:15am 12/04/07 9:15am

PCH, Detroit Wagon Edition: '57 Ford or '65 Dodge?

Due to technical difficulties last Friday, we had to postpone our all-wagon PCH; since it seems that the liberal application of ball-peen hammer to the Gawker servers has finally fixed the problem (for now), we're ready to jump back into Hell! As we all know, the acronym-iffic JDM RHD WRX did a big turbocharged… » 9/24/07 5:45pm 9/24/07 5:45pm

Jalopnik Poll: Which Dodge Dart Should Nardelli Build?

Of all the facts in a New York Times article focusing on incoming Chrysler fearless leader Robert Nardelli, there was one that caught our eye. Mr. Nardelli's first car out of high school was a 1966 Dodge Dart. As Mr. Nardelli's love for the company dates back to this car, it seems only fitting that he spearhead the… » 8/13/07 3:30pm 8/13/07 3:30pm
