In the 60's and 70's GM, Ford or Chrysler?

Thu Jan 19, 2017 6:59 am

Hello

If you were living in the 60's or 70's, would you buy a GM, Ford or Chrysler car?
I would have choose GM, because anybody who could build locomotives, trucks and buses, must know how to build a good car, and I am also a Cadillac fan.
Now today, I am a Chrysler fan, but this post is about the 60's and 70's.

I drove a Dodge Company car in the early 70, on my regular visits I usually equested a Chevy Caprice from the car rental Company

But These cars were not good, they were cheap compared to European cars. It was just fun to drive a ship like that as Long as you did not exceed 75 mph. Then it became really dangerous.

bt I also like your Argument by whch you should drive Korean cars only, after all, the Chae-Bols make usually everything from smart phones via electronics and cars to box carriers.

It's Mopar or No Car!

When I was born, I came home from the hospital in a 1959 Plymouth, so I've been a Mopar guy literally my whole life. Dad had a couple of Plymouths when I was growing up, I got one of those when I started college (he got himself another Plymouth) and I've had a Dodge in the driveway just about continuously ever since.

AMC. Drove a brand new Gremlin off the lot in 74. Put 115,000 miles on it. Loved that little thing.
Mom drove a big old Mercury and Step Dad drove a Rambler Ambassador.
Just traded my Chevy for a KIA. I like it a lot.
My bio dad swore by Chevys and that's what all the police cars were in the county. My mom had a 47 Chevy coupe that she drove until she got a new Mercury in 64.

Give me a time portal or machine (like Star Trek's atavachron, or whatever), and some period-appropriate cash, and I would go back to 1978 and purchase a brand new Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country station wagon, in green, just like we had when I was a child.

A '68 BMW 2002 that was great to drive, except for a totally incompetent cooling system. Egos delivered better cooling systems and BMW was too arrogant to admit it.

A '72 Corolla as a second car - one that could handle air conditioning.

Then replaced the BNW with a '73 Caprice that was grand in comparison to the Dub.

After that hit was Holdens and Toyotas in Perth until the 80's.

Last car was bought in August and is a Buick Encore - basically a rice burner with OnStar. Great as an in town car and very easy to get in and out of, which is my primary need. That replaced a DeVille, which for years took great care of me.

I have only owned one new Chrysler product in my life, back in 1973. A good car and it lasted a long time. Rest have been Ford and GM products.
