Friday The 13th: 1991 Chrysler New Yorker

It's Friday the 13th, so time for something scary.  This next car is going to curl the hairs on your neck/back-- and not just because it is parked outside of "Terrible Tom's Head Cheese & Pork Sausage" but because it appears to be straight out of an episode of the Twilight Zone.  Find this 1991 Chrysler New Yorker offered for $2,500 in Richmond, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

If you want proof that wormholes in time/space truly do exist, you don't need to be an expert in negative energy or prove the Einstein–Rosen bridge using only 3rd grade arithmetic -- you just need to look at this car.  There is no way that a 1991 Chrysler product can have made it this far into the 21st century while still looking this good.

Take a look at the inside...if you dare.  That nasty felt/velour seat covering looks like it was recently removed from Sam the Eagle and I'm pretty sure his kind of muppet is long extinct.  Go ahead, have a seat and see how long you can stay awake while driving this thing on an abandoned highway.  Maybe you'll reach your destination, or maybe the wormhole that it's come out from will bring it back to 1991...hope you like AOL, Baywatch, fanny packs, and pagers.

Propelling this time traveler is a 3.3 liter EGA V6 that was rated at 150 horsepower when new, which won't thrill anybody from the future or the past...but it should be reasonably reliable.

See another time wormhole visitor for cheap?


  1. The world's most perfect dog log is still a dog log.

    These were, in so many respects, in the top ten worst cars ever built.

  2. At least it wasn't parked outside "Tom's Terrible Head Cheese and Pork Sausage".

  3. just so we're clear ...


  4. The price is getting close to what I'd need to take the car off this guy's hands.

    I would then have it crushed so it could not cause future generations to judge us by its crumminess.

  5. To be honest, it is probably a pretty comfy land barge. If you do a ton of interstate driving and don't like to be noticed by police, or anybody, I'm sure it fits the bill. The price is reasonable if everything works well. I'd almost like to buy it just for current vehicle is a back killer.

    And who doesn't want to see a 1991 K-Car based New Yorker driving 85 mph down the highway? The most you expect from these cars is to see somebody in their late 80's or 90's driving 10 mph below the limit.
