Even if it wasn’t a K-car, we went on a (very) slight Mopar Rampage today, so let’s finish it out with some vitamin K.
It should be noted that for some reason, I love virtually any K-based automobile. Now, this love of mine is not of the sort that will probably ever be requited, but there is something that I just can’t resist about these boxy little buggers.
These little cars are very space efficient, and I find their overall simplicity rather appealing in the same way I like the simple Volvo 240*, Ford Fairmont, and the various GM A-body cars like Educator Dan’s beloved Chevy Celebrity. There is something to be said about owning a car whose value doubles at each fill-up; set the whole thing on fire and what have you really lost besides some memories?
What a modern font on a modern car! Judging by the old wax buildup, this car was maintained pretty well for a large portion of its life.
*Do we seriously not have an honest-to-god Curbside Classic of just the Volvo 240? How is that even possible? Did I just overlook it?
