YAK Car Pic of the Day

This is crazy. Here’s a 1980 Plymouth Volare coupe, which I saw yesterday in a Tonawanda restaurant parking lot. It’s the second day in a row that I saw an old Plymouth while driving around town. The Volare and Dodge Aspen were the successors to the Plymouth Valiant/Dodge Dart compacts. They were cars which seemed good on the surface, but suffered from terrible quality control at the outset; by the time the problems were ironed out the car had the automotive equivalent of a Scarlet Letter on its forehead. Introduced for 1976, they hung on until the 1980 model year, and were replaced for 1981 by the K-Car: Plymouth Reliant and Dodge Aries.
