Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
Plymouth had to pay Warner Brothers $50,000 to get the name Road Runner for their midsize coupe and dammit, they got their money's worth.
Ed Bolian may have been able to cross the country in just 28 hours and 50 minutes in a modified Mercedes CL55 AMG and modern highways, but in 1931, things were a lot more difficult. Here's the story, courtesy of The Plymouth Bulletin, of the men who did it first, one of whom was Earl Pribek, uncle to John Z. DeLorean.…
It's the final episode of season one. This time Jael and I are in a '70 Roadrunner traveling to a few more spots in W. Virginia. This includes stopping by the land of a guy who OWNS a cave, and then hitting a great local food spot before joining a few folks for a classic car get together.
The Plymouth Voyager. A 1995 model. Three rows of seats, a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, and an inline-four churning out a nice, round 100 horsepower. The lower end member of the trifecta of Chrysler minivans, the Voyager was never intended to turn heads. Unexciting and forgettable by design, with no…
Most certainly inspired by Peter Max's art, this LSD-infused print ad for the Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda is wonderfully seventies. Chrysler should get some inspiration.
Gather round kids, because I'm about to tell you a story.
A Denver classic car museum is trying to recover a hood ornament that was stolen off a rare 1932 Plymouth PB roadster last week. Repeat after me: Who steals a hood ornament?
Whether the cops in your town patrol in Crown Victorias, Ford Tauruses, Dodge Challengers or the occasional Lamborghini if you live in Dubai, make no mistake: the Seattle Police Department has them beat.
We've been hearing a lot about how Katherine Bigelow's movie, Zero Dark Thirty, is being seen by some as an endorsement of torture. Which is, you know, generally frowned upon. What most people don't realize is that the late Plymouth Motor Company, part of Chrysler, once openly endorsed torture in their mid-1930s era…
Welcome to Found Around Town, where we feature cars we find in a city where interesting ones are rare because everyone drives a Prius or rides a bicycle: Austin, Texas.
Imagine owing a rare, numbers-matching, high-spec, 440-six-pack 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. Then imagine you got it from your cousin when you were 17 years old, and it's now 34 years later? That's the situation with John Cross and his 'Cuda.
One bid is all it can take at a car auction to end up owning a vehicle you may not exactly have planned to purchase. According to the seller of this 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird, that is exactly how he ended up the proud new owner of this rare Mopar at last month's Mecum Spring Classic.
Although with each passing year automakers are finding new ways to stretch a maximum amount of life from each automotive redesign, there was once a time when a new model year likely meant a new car—at least for the companies that could afford it.
If the funky synthesizers and some weird guy staring at you aren't enough to make you want to hop in a time machine back to 1987, we don't blame you. However if you can look past the strange music and 80s style of this amusing vintage dealer promo, you'll see the 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSI.
The Environmental Protection Agency are certainly an unlikely owners for one of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, but that is exactly who purchased this 1970 Plymouth Superbird in 1972. The EPA decided they needed a car for emissions testing and purchased this car—then an Alpine White example with a 440 and…
Barracuda by Heart is a staple of classic rock stations across America. Pony cars are another staple of American culture, and today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Plymouth Barracuda is one rare classic. Its price however may not get your rocks off.
They may have just been used cars back in 1962, but the lineup in front of Lancaster Lincoln Mercury has certainly aged well. Given the opportunity, the chances of us leaving Lancaster Lincoln Mercury without at least the red '58 Desoto and the '57 Plymouth wagon shown here would have been slim to none.
Ever seen a Corvette and wished it looked more like a vintage pickup truck? We haven't either, but that seems to be the line of thought that brought this odd vehicle to life. Currently listed on Ebay, this third generation 'Vette has the face of a vintage pickup truck and the body of an aging beauty with way too many…
