This is my 25,548 miles 1977 440V8 Chrysler NEW YORKER in Abu Dhabi, it is a brand new car, low miles, exceptional!
With my 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and my coming classic BMW and Z28 Camaro I will have a great collection in Abu Dhabi! In addition to my 14 classic cars in my home country they will need all in all a big budget to maintain!!!
Thanks for watching.
1950 CHRYSLER CONTROLS EXPLAINED
Compared to a modern car, the controls on a 1950 Chrysler seem very basic but they were the state of the art in 1950 . I try and explain what they are on my 1950 Chrysler New Yorker two door coupe

1979 Chrysler New Yorker 5th Avenue
This is Wanda. She's an R-body New Yorker from 1979 - which means she's kinda rare; especially in this shape and with the options she has.
This is not meant to be serious. I'm just trying to have some fun and figure out how to edit audio/video on my Mac.
Bonus pop-culture points to anyone who can name the song, band, and year of release for the background song. No cheating with the Google-nets, either.
Test Drive the 1976 Chrysler Newport Custom!
Hi! Cold War Motors picked up this nice old Chrysler a couple of years ago to save it from the demolition derby. Its got a 400 cubic inch V8, four barrel, and single Exhaust. This car drives really nice and smooth, and isn't as wallowy as some of the earlier models. It features air conditioning, tilt / telescoping wheel, cruise control, fender top lights, green tinted glass, 8 track player, fender skirts, green vinyl top, etc. In other words, a real 70's dreamboat! I really enjoy taking this car out for a night out with a load of friends, just cruising in comfort... hard to believe these cars are almost totally extinct now. I rebuilt the rear quarter panels due to rust, but managed to save a lot of the original paint. The top, engine, and interior are all in original condition. Hope you enjoy a few minutes of checking out this great old boat!
1973 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham cold start
August 2010 : 1973 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham cold start. This 4 door hardtop is rust free.
I didn't have time to say that Mr & Mrs Poetz, the original owners of the car, first owned a 1936 Plymouth, then a 1950 Plymouth, a 1959 DeSoto, and finally the 1973 Chrysler. They worked their way up the Chrysler Corporation ladder of makes and models, just as Walter Percy Chrysler had intended.
1967 Chrysler Newport First Start After Sitting For 20 Years
I went to check out this car because it was advertised as having a "valuable 440" which I wanted to rebuild and put in my 73 Challenger. When I got there I found out it was a 383 2 bbl car in incredible shape with 69990 original miles. It had belonged to his grandfather and was parked in 1990/1991 and never started since, nor was it ever registered in anyone else's name, so I am technically the second owner. It wasn't what I came for but I had to take it home.
This is a video diary of getting this great old girl running and will probably only be enjoyed by true car enthusiasts.
November 28, 2012 Update: I haven't been here in quite a while and at first I was a bit dismayed that there are so many lonely aholes in our world and how they tend to flock to the internet. I considered pulling the video but realized there are many people who enjoyed it and that is who I posted it for.
To all of those experts who know so much more than the rest of us please keep your negative comments to yourself.
To those of you who say I should have done more before trying to start, I did.
- The previous owner had pulled the car out of the field with a tractor and his buddy "may have" put the car in gear to slow it down. If the rings were rusted the engine could have been destroyed by that action alone, there was some resistance when I turned the crank pulley over by hand and I was surprised it turned over that easily, but with the engine sitting that long the rings would not be sealing to build up pressure in the cylinders. Therefore I concluded that there was no rusting/seizing so no risk of cylinder wall damage, or that the engine was possibly toast due to "transmission/engine braking"
- The oil was not milky, still "felt" oily and I only planned on running the engine 2-3 minutes to get it off the trailer and onto my hoist to do all the fluids, so I determined it had enough viscosity left to protect it for a short period of time.
- Even an old fuel filter will stop any major contaminants from reaching the carb. So why spend a bunch of money, with the steps I took the chance of me causing any damage at all was miniscule.
For those who were so concerned about our safety, come on. We grew up on a farm before the days of fuel injection and many farm vehicles do not get regularly started so this is a very common practice. The risk is MINIMAL and calculated, note that there is a fire extinguisher at 8:43 in the lower left corner on the trailer. The jerry can is very full by design, gas liquid does not ignite but the vapours do, note that when the gas starts to come out of the spigot that the top of the jerry can is full of gas, not fumes! I don't believe at any time was my brothers face over the carb, these big old girls are so big you pretty well have to stand in the engine compartment to do that. We did our best to slowly feed the engine as little gas as possible to avoid flooding the engine and possibly causing her to backfire.
Anyways, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to defend myself against a bunch of morons who obviously have nothing better to do with their time than to creep youtube videos so they can leave moronic comments that allow them to feel all high and mighty ... but at least it might stop a few from wasting our time as we try to enjoy videos of common interest.
Thanks to all for the positive comments and feedback.
1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance - start-up and test drive
My own "test drive" video of my 1981 Cadillac as a tribute to the ones I watched when searching for my own hobby car.
I bought this car from http://www.caliautobrokers.com in 2009 and imported it to Finland myself. It is essentially in original, unrestored condition, with only minor repairs done by me. All the accessories etc. work.
Update: I was asked for the exact location the video was filmed in. It's here (Google Maps): http://tinyurl.com/harjutie
Just Arrived - The 1986 Chrysler New Yorker
It just came today...
My dreams have finally been fullfilled!!!!!!!!
This car also has auto level air ride suspension!
Note: It only has 52,800 miles on it. The mileage on the instrument cluster was from a replacement one.
Also, the radio is not original. I would like to find the original one and install it instead.
Long Live the K-Car
