No Shelby Signature – 1988 Dodge Aries Turbo

May 17, 2016

While Chrysler’s K-cars are (for most people) something to be mocked only slightly less mercilessly than a Yugo or Hyundai Excel, it alwaays bears remembering that these cars saved Chrysler’s bacon so it could produce memorable vehicles like the Dodge Dynasty, Chrysler TC by Maserati, and Plymouth PT Cruiser. Oh, and the Viper. And while they weren’t the best cars in the world, they were certainly what America wanted in 1981, selling strongly and providing the basis for many derivatives, including their famous minivan. And if you consider the competition – GM’s X-platform cars, and Ford’s Fox-platform sedans – it’s easy to see why they were able to dig themselves out of their hole with their offering. Let’s check out this 1988 Dodge Aries Turbo for sale for $2000 in Suffolk, NY.
