1968 Plymouth Fury I slant six 225 from North America
200K slantsix survivor
The car had been sitting for several years when I got it. The heater core was leaking and I found out later the exhaust manifold was broken completely in half. Many little things have broken throughout the years, but the major components have not been replaced or rebuilt.
This car has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. With other 200K miles on the slantsix, the car still has surprising power for a full size car with a 6 cylinder motor. someone drove their car into the passenger side door and the car was also hit in the front left corner by a crane operator unloading a pallet of huge black pipes. I think the second incident would have sheared the front clean off of most automobiles, but only did minor damage to the Fury.

If it is the most reliable car you have owned, why did you give it an blue unhappy face?

The blue face must be the default. Definitely should be a high smiley. BTW. I had to sell the car. It was sold locally and is spotted on the road weekly by friends of mine.
1967 Plymouth Fury III 440 V8 from North America
Broken crankshaft. Very surprising, considering the crank is forged steel. Not surprising, considering I drive the CRAP out of this car. The car still ran very well, I just didn't take it much over an idle on the way back home. Some wiring snafus.
Other than the manufacturing defect that allowed the crank to break, the car has taken an amazing amount of abuse. Other than the break, it's been absolutely bullet-proof for 185,000+ miles. I do my own maintenance. I thumb my nose at new cars.;-D We also have a '99 Durango SLT we're expecting big things from! We love it!
