    The Aspen nearly killed Chrysler in the 1970's and the nearly had the Newark
    DE assembly plant closed then. Now the Aspen has finally killed the plant.
    Of course the K-car, assembled there had to rescue it and the company

    I care because I am a Newark DE native and once owned a 1976 POS Aspen. As
    the Newark assembly plant goes so does Chrysler.

    Oh yea, the UAW had a part of this too. They squeezed the US auto industry
    dry by their greed.

    I still wouldn't mind getting a hold of a Super Coupe.

    Times change. Because of an entrenched union that plant may have to go
    to save Chrysler.
    Unions are often needed, but too often their lack of reality isn't

    In defense of the Aspen/Volare, my mother bought a new Volare in 1978
    and I still have it. Other than normal maintenance, the car is
    original and runs/drives just fine. I would not trade it even for
    any of the plastic throw away cars on the lot today!

    I agree BUT... you don't live in the rust belt, do you?

    It is a shame they didn't just continue on with the A-bodies they
    already had, they were better cars than the ones they were replaced by.

    I had a great experience with one as well. Slant 6 4-speed. They rusted,
    but other than that, they were great. I wouldn't recommend one to an idiot,
    though. There was always some electrical problem or other that I had to
    work around.

    I'd like to have mine back now, if I could.

    True enough.
