Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Gen.3 Minivan, 1996 - 2000, Strut Tower Repair Job
Here is a video rundown on my method of repairing rotted out front strut
towers on these minivans. This method is way better than the Chry. Corp.
recommended fix of merely gluing on a cap. It is also the only viable fix,
for when they get to this stage of deterioration. There is no way that a
glued and riveted cap would work on a van in this condition. I am
absolutely confident that a repair like this will outlast the rest of the
These are darn handy vans to have around, and an otherwise nice one ( apart
from this issue ), is well worth fixing.

...The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered standard features such
as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the Mayflower ship which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
farmers. (Plymouth Binder Twine was a common household item that was used
to tie up various items.)
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929...
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today.
In 1937, Plymouth (along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety
features such as flat dash boards with recessed controls and the back of
the front seat padded for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped
overseas to Sweden, Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it
was sold as a 'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the
Chrysler factory outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933
Model PC stayed in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
Plymouth almost surpassed Ford in 1940 and 1941 as the second most popular
make of automobiles in the U.S...
From a peak production of 973,000 for the 1973 model year, Plymouth rarely
exceeded 200,000 cars per year after 1990. Even the Voyager sales were
usually less than 50% that of Dodge Caravan. In Canada, the Plymouth name
was defunct at the end of the 1999 model year. Consequently,
DaimlerChrysler decided to drop the make after a limited run of 2001
models. This was announced on November 3, 1999.
The last new model sold under the Plymouth marque was the second generation
Neon for 2000--2001...
My 93 Ford Aerostar Starts Up After A 7 Year Sleep
Starting it to take it with me when my house gets sold once the water
damage is repaired. As I was trying to rock it out of the ground it because
it sunk in over the years I did a small burnout with it in the dirt.
By the way, doing a burnout with the door open like that. Bad idea, as you
can see that I smoked my own ass out. lol
This van has served me well. My family took me and my brother on road trips
with it and then I took it on my own road trips when I was using it
I parked it in my backyard by my storage unit in 2007 and it hasn't ran or
moved since until 1-15-2014. The reason why I parked it was because the
overdrive goes on and off until it reaches 70 mph. That and I have to add a
quart of oil to the engine before reaching 3,000 miles on an oil change.
But it survived my mother over heating it in it's early life before I owned
it. It has 271,000 miles on it and I didn't think that it was going to
start after sitting for so long with seven year old gas in the tank. But
you can see the look on my face in the video that I was impressed that it
did. Just by putting a battery in it and getting the starter to loosen up
and finally turn the engine over.
The reason why I broke the passenger side window is because the door was
stuck shut and I was trying to get it open.
Why did I park it instead of getting rid of it? Well original I was saving
it to take it to Dave's Farm and finish what ever life it had left in it
over there. But now I have a new idea. I'm going to take it to a Demolition
Derby and have fun with it before junking it. It had a good life and run
and now we party.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Steve Strope's 744 HP Plymouth Hammer Street Test! Nelson Racing 500 CI Chrysler Wedge Pro Charger.
Much of this video was uploaded in 2009 but not seen on the BJT channel.
Steve has really produced a great car here. The distinctive sound of NRE's
500 CI Chrysler wedge equipped with a Pro Charger adds to the car's
uniqueness. This engine works beautifully with this car. This 1970
Plymouth Road Runner was seen in the Fast and Furious movie series. Thanks
Steve & Tom.
