My best friend in highschool had one of these back in 1986. It was an '83 or '84. Our "cruisin" car. Ahh, the memories.

My best friend had one for a company car - brand new. He hated it so much that 3 days after he got it we took it for some mild off-roading, ran through a rocky stream-bed and bent the front subframe(found out because it started eating tires). Then he ran it for 60,000 miles with the only maintenance adding oil. Car finally gave up, they took it away and gave him a desk job. No wonder that insurance company won't write cars anymore.

There is an old guy around here with an 88 New Yorker Turbo. The car is baby blue with a white fake cloth top and it is MINT. It has the voice alert which is hilarious.

I beat the **** out of it....and never had any major issues besides the tranny. I miss it, only a little bit though.

The vans are the best but I maybe bit biased. I love me some turbo dodges. Cheap as hell to buy, cheap as hell to mod, cheap as hell parts, and easy as hell to work on . My friend just bought a spirit r/t, thats the fancy dohc engined one, for $1k and put a big *** holset turbo on it. Should be pretty sweet once he gets a new intercooler, exhaust, and some more fuel so he can run some real boost.
