      The Wade Williams Collection
I am selling my 40 year classic and special
interest car collection, from Corvettes to

      This offering is a 1985 Chrysler Turbo
Town and Country Woodie Convertible with a special
feature. It belonged to a jet plane mechanic at the
old TWA overhaul base here in Kansas City. Mark rebuilt
the turbo and transmission making it more powerful than
the stock vehicle from Chrysler. It's excellent on gas
and also is fast.

        I added the car to my collection on January 8, 2003
and it has been stored inside since and driven from
time to time. The gas tank has been cleaned and coated and the
 fuel lines replaced..
        I added a "Continental kit" on the rear of the car which
harks back to the 40's sporty style. . It is a beautiful addition and 
makes the car longer in the rear. The classic  louvered hood rams more air
into the turbo and gives it a racier look. The white convertible top and
boot are in excellent condition. The white exterior color was the most popular. It has chrome
wire hubcaps . This car is unique and you will not see one unless you see them in the movies
(Planes-Train & Automobiles) or TV ( Seinfeld ) or happen to live down the street.

         The leather seats are not torn. They could use a good cleaning or
a leather spray coating which would make them look new. The carpets are fine. I believe all the
accessories work but am not positive. The AC may need a charge. In any event the cars is drives well
and turn heads whever it goes. It's great on gas

        In the four years Chrysler made these Town and Country woodie convertibles
a little over 3000 were made. Few remain. They fell victim to the newer J-bodied
GTC  convertibles with 6 cylinder engines. These unique and rare K-bodied convertibles
are becoming highly collectible and are still within a reasonable price range. They will
double and triple in value in a few years. Definately a classic already and a fun car .
          As an investment this is the time to buy one. It is a buyer's market. Buy it for Xmas,
enjoy it in the spring.
        There is a low reserve on this car. I want to sell it. It will sell at a bargain to a
 lucky buyer.This one is much less than others recently advertised and is more desirable than
a 1983 model. 
        The winning bidder must make a non-refundable $ 500.00 deposit via Pay Pal within 49 hours
of winning. The balance must be paid withing seven (7) days of the close of the auction either by
cash or bank wire prior to picking up the car. Buyer must arrange to pick up the car in Kansas City. 

All sales final. Car sold "as-is" with no warranty or
guarantee of any kind.

The car can be inspected in Kansas City prior to the final
bid by contacting the seller. One the car is sold it belongs
to the highest bidder . It is not sold "on approval" and cannot
be returned. Buyer must arrange shipping from Kansas City.

This car is a bargain, a classic and well worth considering.

Hurricane Sandy cost automakers 15,000 vehicles, may have ruined up to 200k

Wed, 07 Nov 2012 16:29:00 EST

Hurricane Sandy was the largest Atlantic storm in US history, and its total economic impact is just now coming into view. According to Automotive News, Toyota, Chrysler, Nissan and Honda are set to scrap around 15,000 new vehicles ruined by the storm. Nissan alone accounts for about 40 percent of those, with 6,000 Nissan and Infiniti models deeded "un-saleable" due to damage. The company saw 56 dealerships shuttered due to the storm, but 51 of those have since reopened.
Toyota, meanwhile, had some 4,000 vehicles at its Newark port facility, and of those, 3,000 may be scrapped. An additional 825 were dealer inventory when they were ruined. Honda and Acura dealers are reportedly sending 3,440 vehicles to the salvage yard. By comparison, Chrysler weathered the storm fairly well with 825 units destroyed, while Hyundai suffered only 400 lost units and Kia scrapped around 200.
As you may recall, Fisker also suffered some losses, and Automotive News reports the manufacturer saw 320 Karma models damaged beyond repair. Ford and General Motors have yet to come up with estimates, and no automaker has commented on the full cost of replacing the vehicles.

Chrysler recalling 31k SUVs and vans

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 15:45:00 EST

Chrysler is issuing recalls covering roughly 31,700 vehicles worldwide due to two separate problems. In both cases the company believes that most of the affected vehicles are either still on, or in transit to, dealer lots.
One recall covers roughly 10,700 Dodge Durango, Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee SRT models from the 2014 model year built between January 16 and April 17, 2014. The SUVs need a software update for the cruise control. It's possible that when the cruise is on and the driver presses on the throttle, the acceleration could last a second after the pedal is released or two seconds for the SRT. Afterward, they return to the speed originally set by the driver.
Chrysler says it isn't aware of any accidents, injuries or even reported incidents of this happening in the real world. Also, in all cases, if the driver presses on the brake, the cruise shuts off. The automaker believes that there are about 6,100 affected SUVs in the US, 950 in Canada, 425 in Mexico and 3,200 outside of North America. The software upgrade will be ready shortly, the company says.

I sold my Viper, but the memories I'll keep

Thu, 30 May 2013 19:58:00 EST

The following is written by auto industry veteran Tow Kowaleski. The words are his own, but the memories now belong to everyone thanks to his willingness to share. If you're an industry veteran with a story to share, contact us at tipsATautoblogDOTcom.
It became the flame that started the fire of belief in the next life of Chrysler.
I just sold a car. Nothing new. Millions do it every day. But my car was a 1995 Dodge Viper, so maybe it was a bit more unique since just 12,000 were built. And like others selling a car that's been a part of the family for close to 20 years, this was a confluence of emotions for me. I was sad to see it go, but happy to have the cash and one less big, shiny, under-utilized object in my life.
