The Development of the Chrysler K Car
The Chrysler Corporation's K-cars were an automobile platform of
compact-to-midsize cars designed to carry six adults on two bench seats and
were aimed not only to replace Chrysler's nominally compact F-body Aspen
and Volaré, but also to compete with intermediates like the Chevrolet
Malibu and Ford Fairmont. Based on their passenger space, the K-cars were
placed in the same "midsize" category by the United States Environmental
Protection Agency as Chrysler's significantly larger and heavier M-body
The K cars have been categorized as compact for their external size and
small front-wheel drive layout. Technically, the K cars include only the
Dodge Aries, Plymouth Reliant, second generation Chrysler LeBaron, and the
Dodge 400, which used the K platform. The rest of the K-derivatives,
including Chrysler's minivans, were based on the K platform with
adaptations and modifications to suit vehicles of different sizes and
intended usage. These vehicles had modified suspensions and were longer and
heavier than the original K-cars, but all had the same basic architecture:
a solid beam rear axle, independent front suspensions with MacPherson
struts, and front-wheel drive (except for the AWD minivans). Sometimes,
they also shared numerous internal components and trim pieces (e.g., the
Reliant and first-generation Voyager).

The 1986/1987 Shelby GLHS vehicles
Kazzer introduces the long overlooked low budget performance sports cars
from Caroll Shelbys Chrysler turbo days,
the 1986 Shelby GLHS (sedan) and the 1987 Shelby GLHS (coupe)

were taken to Shelbys Whittier CA skunkworks facility where the performance
was bumped up all around and limited editions were made..
1986 GLHS's = 500 total
1987 GLHS's - 1,000 total
1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years
How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.

Drag racing the Omni GLH SRT4
First time I've ever gotten a chance to see myself drag racing. These are 3
of the runs I made on Friday May 8th, 2009. I'm running 8psi of Boost, E85 for fuel, MegaSquirt is running my
2.4L DOHC motor. I REALLY have a traction problem in 1st and 2nd. The last
car I ran against really threw me off, I normally baby my gas in 1st and
2nd to keep the tires connected. I couldn't hear anything but that loud
thing, I was quite happy when he ran off and left me to myself. hehehe
We drive the 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger & test it from 0-60 MPH (again)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger is one
badass looking cop car. You certainly don't want to see this police car in
your rear view mirror. Last year we got to ride in the Dodge Police Pursuit
Charger at Chrysler's Proving Grounds in Michigan. This year Nathan and
Roman got behind the wheel of the 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger
and played cops and robbers. In another fun and informative TFLcar video we
not only drive the new Charger Pursuit but we test it from 0-60 MPH at sea
level to see if the HEMI gas what it takes to catch up with the bad guys.
