Generation I Caravans used the Chrysler S platform, which was closely related to the K-cars, Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant. There were three trim levels on the Generation I Caravan: base, mainstream SE, and upscale LE. The Caravan was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1985. All trim levels were also available in a slightly longer body, called the Grand Caravan, which allowed significantly more cargo space behind the rear seat. Most of the interior trim, controls, and instrumentation were borrowed from the K-car, leading to a very "car-like" interior look and feel. Coupled with the lower floor that the front-wheel-drive design allowed, this helped to make the Caravan seem more like a large station wagon than a van, enticing many buyers who would not have otherwise been comfortable driving a van.
The vans came equipped for seven passengers in three rows of seating, putting it between a typical twelve-passenger/four-row full-size van and a six-passenger/two-row large sedan. 2 bucket seats with attached armrests and open floor space between them in the front, a 2 person bench seat in the second row, and a 3 person bench seat in the back row. The two bench seats in the rear were independently removable, and the large 3 person bench could also be installed in the 2nd row location via a second set of attachment points on the van's floor, ordinarily hidden with snap-in plastic covers. This configuration allowed for conventional 5 person seating with a sizable cargo area in the rear. The latching mechanisms for the benches were very intuitive and easy to operate. The act of moving the seats, however, typically required 2 adults, and lifting them back into the van was a very awkward procedure. An 8-passenger model with a bench front seat accommodating a middle front passenger was offered in the SE trim level in 1985 only, and was not repeated due to poor sales.
Safety features were typical of vans of the era, and consisted of 3-point seat belts for the front two passengers, with simple lap belts for the rear 5. The rear seats had no headrests, while front seats with non-adjustable headrests came only on the LE and in conjunction with vinyl upholstery on the SE. Base models and cloth-trimmed SEs did without front headrests which were not mandated due to the van's "light truck" legal status. Side-impact reinforcements were, and were at all seating positions front and rear. Airbags or ABS were not available.
Access to the rear rows of seating was by a large sliding door on the passenger side. The sliding door allowed easier access in a confined suburban garage, compared to the double doors found on most full-size vans of the era. Because only one sliding door was offered, the smaller 2nd row bench seat was installed off center, shifted to the drivers side of the van, to allow easy passenger access to the 3rd row seat. The cargo area behind the rear seat was very limited on the standard short body model, however, the seat could be adjusted forward in 2 increments, the first of which removed roughly 6 inches (150 mm) of legroom from the back row passengers, and the second of which would push the bench all the way to the back of the 2nd row, making the seats unusable. The seatback of the rear bench could also be folded forward, providing a flat cargo shelf. The smaller 2nd row bench was not adjustable, nor foldable; it could only be removed entirely.
Cargo access to the rear was via a hatchback, similar to the one on the K-Car station wagons. The hatch was hinged at the top and held open by gas struts, and it was the source of much confusion among Caravan owners. It could only be released by the key, or by a button on the driver's control panel; it did not have a traditional door handle. Once the hatch had been "popped", the key could be removed, and the hatch lifted by a handhold above the license plate holder. However, many owners did not identify the handhold area, and instead used the turned key as a handle to lift the hatch, resulting in many broken keys.

2ND PLACE SUPER STREET Ian Curtis 2012 Dodge Challenger NA 9.009 80.79
The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations of
automobiles marketed by the Dodge division of Chrysler.
The first generation Dodge Challenger was a pony car built from 1970 to
1974, using the Chrysler E platform and sharing major components with the
Plymouth Barracuda. The second generation, from 1978 to 1983, was a badge
engineered Mitsubishi Galant Lambda. The third, and current generation, was
introduced in 2008 as a rival to the evolved fifth generation Ford Mustang and the reintroduced fifth
generation Chevrolet Camaro.
On December 3, 2007, Chrysler started taking deposits for the
third-generation Dodge Challenger which debuted on February 6, 2008
simultaneously at the Chicago Auto Show and Philadelphia International
Auto Show. Listing at US$40,095, the new version was a 2-door coupe which
shared common design elements with the first generation Challenger, despite
being significantly longer and taller. The LC chassis is a modified
(shortened wheelbase) version of the LX platform that underpins the
2006--Current Dodge Charger, 2005--2008 Dodge Magnum, and the 2005--Current
Chrysler 300. The LX was developed in America from the previous Chrysler LH
platform, which had been designed to allow it to be easily upgraded to rear
and all-wheel drive. Many Mercedes components were incorporated, including
the Mercedes-Benz W220 S-class control arm front suspension, the
Mercedes-Benz W210 E-Class 5-link rear suspension, the W5A580 5-speed
automatic, the rear differential, and the ESP system. All (7119) 2008
models were SRT8s and equipped with the 6.1 L (370 cu in) Hemi and a
5-speed AutoStick automatic transmission. The entire 2008 U.S. run of 6,400
cars were pre-sold (many of which for above MSRP), and production commenced
on May 8, 2008; Chrysler Canada offered a further 670+ SRTs uniquely badged
as the Challenger 500 (paying homage to Charger and Coronet 500s) all of
which were shipped to Canadian Dodge dealers. Chrysler of Mexico offered
only 100 of these cars for that country with a 6.1 liter V8 and 425 brake
kW) (SAE); the version of which was the SRT8. Chrysler auctioned off two
2008 SRT8 for charity with the first car going for $400,000 to benefit the
notMYkid non-profit organization. A "B5" Blue No.43 car fetched a winning
bid of $228,143.43 with proceeds going to the Victory Junction Gang
The 2011 model year base Dodge Challenger came with the new Pentastar V6
engine producing 305 bhp (227 kW; 309 PS) and 268 lb·ft (363 N·m). The
new engine featured cylinder deactivation and dual variable valve timing.
The bottom grille cutout was also flipped upside down, different from the
2008--10. The new SRT8's chin spoiler was enlarged to create more
downforce. It resembles the 1970 Challenger R/T. The SRT8 received a
new 392-cubic-inch (6.4 L) Hemi V8. with Variable Camshaft Timing, as
well as the Multiple Displacement System that was used on the 5.7 L (345
c.i.d.) engine. The 392 was officially rated at 470 horsepower (350 kW) and 470
lb·ft (640 N·m) of torque. Dodge engineers said they sacrificed peak horsepower ratings
for low-end torque, stating a 90 lb-ft increase over the outgoing 6.1-L
(370 c.i.d.) Hemi V8 at 2900 rpm. Two transmissions were offered, a
5-Speed Shiftable Automatic and a 6-speed manual. With the revised
6.4-Liter engine, Chrysler engineers cited a quarter mile (~400 m) time of
12.4 seconds at 110 mph (180 km/h) -- bettering the outgoing 6.1-Liter Hemi
by 0.8 seconds, although that figure has varied wildly between automotive
magazines. Car and Driver tested the 392 at 12.9 seconds at 114 mph (183
km/h) while Motor Trend ran it at 13.0 seconds at 111.3 mph (179.1
km/h) and Edmunds' number was far closer to Chrysler's claimed numbers
at 12.6 seconds at 112.1 mph (180.4 km/h).

Thermostat replacement on 2002 Town and Country
Heater wasn't getting warm enough and the temp gauge wouldn't go over 1/4
the way from the bottom after driving quite a long way. I bought an $8
replacement thermostat for my 2002 Chrysler Town and Country minivan and
fixed the problem. It was easier than I thought to replace.
