This year makes the 23rd birthday of our 1990 Chrysler LaBaron GT convertible. This grand old dame has seen three generations of owners and has been in the first car of each of the Hardy Boys. The LaBaron was a catch-all name at Chrysler in the 1990’s but the vehicle was based on the famous K-Car platform derivative that saved Chrysler from certain death from bankruptcy in the early 1980’s. With its 3.0 liter V6 Mitsubishi engine this car had the get up and go tendency. Evan told me he had the speedometer pegged at 130 going up I-75 on very early morning several years ago.
Evan, Ethan and now Ian have all called the old lady their first car. This year looks to be that last season for this trustworthy convertible. Tonight I cleaned her up a bit and took some last shots. Later this summer we may take it up to Caseville for its final curtain call.
