1970 Chrysler New Yorker Review
Classic Luxury — I bought this car in 1992 for $700. It was during a time when I needed the quintessential 'cheap, work car'. It had about 130,000 miles on it if I recall when I bought it. VERY nice car - big, heavy, and loaded with features that for the most part still worked. Hideaway headlights which included an 'off timer' for when you turned the car off, if you turned the headlights off last they would stay on for two minutes. Highly advanced for 1970!
Pros: Big enough to carry loads of friends or stuff. Plenty of power and style.
Cons: Drank a LOT of gasoline! Very long wheelbase made it difficult to park sometimes.

Had this car for about 6 months. Got it for free, and fixed it up. Never any mechanical issues, except for the starter sometimes wouldn't engage, but click the key a few more times and it would work. ... Read More
