A blue Chevrolet C10 built between 1970 and 1975.
A white Plymouth GTX built between 1970 and 1975.
A blue Buick Riviera built between 1970 and 1975.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: A green Plymouth Caravelle from 1978.


The Caravelle was introduced in 1983 as a Canada-only model, entering the USA in 1985. There was no such thing as a '78 Caravelle.

The whole list is suspect.

Hey Subby, they're still working on the Judge Crater case.  When they wrap that up, they can get onto that Hoffa thing.

Plymouth Gran Fury was sold in Canada as the Plymouth Caravelle. 1978 is the first year for it.

This is what passes for news in Canada?

Growing up in New Jersey during the 70s stolen cars dumped in bodies of water were a dime a dozen.  Unless they posed some kind of hazard the cops couldn't even be bothered to pull them out.

Was gonna say, as the owner of a Cordoba, this is not a Cordoba.

It's not a seventies Chrysler product unless it's an Imperial.  It has a full frame.  All Chrysler passenger cars except for the Imperals were unibody.

The Cortina's were pretty sporty little cars and sold well in Europe. There musta been something good about them.

CSB: Back in my youth, one of the many junky cars i had was an old 82 Plymouth reliant K. The build quality on the thing was terrible, but it just kept running and running. When i got rid of it it was so rusted out underneath that it wasnt safe to drive, so i made a point to sell it to the scrapyard even though it was still very drivable.

7 years later i get a call from the city police.... "sir we have your plymouth reliant K in the impound lot, come pay the fee and you can pick it up."
"I dont have a plymouth reliant K"
"Its titled to your name"

Someone had still been driving that death trap all those years later and left it abandoned by the side of the road.

I let the PD keep it.

The Cortina was designed and built by Ford in the UK.  At one time it was the most popular car sold in the UK.

Rear door handle is lower than the front.  There's a pronounced riviera-like bodyline that starts in the hood, extends through the doors and fades out into the quarters.  Rear wheel arch is more open than on the Impala and it doesn't look like it's set up for a sort of skirt-cover like many cars of the time had.

That's a mid-70s GM B body. From the roofline, an Olds 98 or a Cadillac Sedan DeVille. If the trunk area was a little more intact, I could tell you which. What little can see of the hood and front, I lean towards the Caddy.

It isn't the Riviera. That would have the boat tail on the back of the roof.

I get the feeling they shared an engine with the Pinto, which had a European built engine. Despite their propensity to become an incinerator, they were a pretty good little car.
