The Pimpmobile — i loved my aspen it was the best first car ever super sturdy hunk of metal pushed buy a slant six with enough juice to make it a one wheel wonder mine was the special edition so it had the R/T interior ugh i wish i would have jumped it before it blew up wish i had the money to fix it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fast loud and outa control

Cons: in need of a complete restoration

1976 Dodge Aspen Four Door — One of the most fun and easy cars to drive made by Dodge to replace the Dart it was the last year for the dart and the first year for the Aspen it almost put Chrysler in the poor house ... They lasted for four years Once it gets going it is fun ride smooth they tried to get a big sloppy car ride in a smaller car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very easy to drive, with one finger, well built for the time a fancy Dart with more plush inside,
Most dependable engine every built the slant six

Cons: it a 1976 Dodge Aspen four door not too many around
it was made by Chrysler very fast and the 1976 was the most recalled car ever
Mine of course has all been fixed
