Awww yeah. Meet the New Yorker people.

Imagine a little Sly and the Family Stone playing right about now...and now visualize me rollin' down the street, kickin' back in the plush comfort of this 1977 classic. Friends, this is beauty is my Uncle Max's car.... a mint condition, baby blue Chrysler New Yorker. What's that? Does it have creamy white leather interior? Oh funny you should ask, why YES IT DOES! This is the ultimate ride. It's luxurious. It's pimptastic. It's regal. It's gigantic. And it's now sitting in my parents driveway. Can ya dig it.... oh I think you can.

This is a Car with a Captial "C". It sneers at Jettas, chuckles at Hondas and eats a wee Prius for breakfast every day. (I won't tell you what it says to PT Cruisers because this is a PG show I'm runnin' here people...) My aunt took amazing care of the New Yorker once my uncle passed away. Even back in the day this car was exceptionally rad. And really it just keeps getting cooler.

I think I was supposed to take it to prom back in the day but for some reason that never happened. That would have been amazing. If only I could schlepp this sucka back to Cali...

  1. *squeal* that car is so fabulous!! i love the seats..i wish cars still looked like that. Not so nice environmentally but, really, thats one hell of a ride. And i'm not a car girl. Also, its the colour of all those sexy old telecasters! Too cool. Hilarious post, i LOLd :D

  2. Car Porn...Shame on you. The seats with coordinating belts and steering wheel? Oh honey hush! My grandpa's Caddy Seville, "The White House" just took its burgundy velvet interior and backed down the driveway in shame. WOW!!!

  3. Yep it's true Ms pilgrim, it's not the greenest car, but its perfect for a Sunday drive!

    Leetha you made me spit my coffee....hahaha. i wish it were here so we could get Kristin and do a snazzy retro photo shoot!!

  4. It's fabulous, when I was a young boy I had one like that, but my father sold it, for money problems, and to buy viagra . Thanks for sharing those pictures, than remind me what I have when was younger. I wish that it will be with you for a long time. Congrats!
