1977 Dodge Diplomat Introduction Film Commercial vs. Chevy Caprice & Cutlas Supreme
This is an introduction film from 1977 for the 1977 Dodge Diplomat which
was launched in the Winter/Spring of 1977. This was the upper level entry
into the mid-sized class of cars. It could compete with the larger
compacts as well as the New GM Full Sized Cars. My family owned one almost
identical to the vehicle featured in this film. Dark Brown with a Copper
Roof. They shared the same plateform as the Dodge Aspen. The roof and
glass and doors were interchangable with differences only in trim pieces.
The sister car for the Chrysler Plymouth Dealers was the Chrysler LeBaron.
These cars with some restyling changes in 1980 would stay into production
until the 1989 model year. It proved in the 1980's to be a very sought
after Police Car. This particular film compares the Diplomat to the new
sized GM full sized cars and old style GM Midsized Car, the Chevy Caprice
and Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
1978 Dodge Aspen Commercial - R/T and Super Coupe
Before everyone starts hating on the Aspen, please know, yes, the 1976
launch was a disaster and that the Plymouth Volare and Dodge Aspen were at
the time one of the most recalled cars, but that was 1976. This is a 1978
and by then, the bugs were all worked out and these proved to be good solid
1978 Dodge Diplomat Promo Commercial Film Wink Martindale Voiceover
This film features the 78 Dodge Diplomat. Approximately 50,000 cars were
manufactured in it's second full year. The 78 model year saw the
introduction of the Wagon Version. This car was heavily based on the
Dodge Aspen/Plymouth Volare platform. Note the similarities of the wagon
model to the Aspen. Diplomats were only offered as passenger cars. By the
1982 Model year, Diplomats would be heavily promoted as Police Cars and
Taxi cabs. The Diplomat was in production from 1977 thru 1989 with only
minimal changes to the car which occurred in the 1980 model year. It ran
from 80 thru 90 almost unchanged. As with other Dodge promo films from 78,
this is narrated by Wink Martindale

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

was the end of the C Platform for Dodge. In 1979, Dodge did introduce the
St. Regis which was based off the Chrysler B Platform. This body style was
introduced in the 1974 model year at the height of the Arab Oil Embargo and
Fuel Crisis. 218,049 Dodge C Platform Monacos were produced in the 1974

production, Summer of 1973 thru December of 1976.
78 Dodge Diplomat vs Ford Granada Ghia & Olds CutlassTom Kite featured
78 model year. This basic car stayed in production until 1989. Diplomats
were used extensively as Police Cars and Taxi Cabs after 1981 when the
Aspen and St Regis were removed from the Dodge Line Up. It proved to be a
very successful car for Dodge. Diplomats were based off the Dodge Aspen.
They share much in styling. Even the doors of the car were the same.
Diplomats phased out the stylish two door and wagon in the early eighties.
Wink Martindale is the voice over for this video.

Dodge Magnum R/T with an SLP Loudmouth 1
This is a video showing what my Magnum sounded like before and after I had
an SLP Loudmouth 1 cat-back Exhaust
system installed. Before it was installed there was only a K&N CAI on the
car, but now there is a K&N CAI, an SLP LM1 system, a Jet 180 degree
t-stat, and it has a 93 Octane CAI Predator tune.
