Those were never big up here, and I think I've seen only 3 or 4 in my life, and that was 30 years ago.
That reminds me of the Subaru Brat, and my old 76 Ranchero.

Looks like the little truck is still in nice condition. Last time I saw one of those in good condition was at a car show last year. He wanted $6000 for it. Good Luck, Rick

I don't know if they never caught on in area or they all rotted away.

I saw a couple in high school, but they went away pretty quickly in the late 80's
They could be upgraded to the 4 banger hemi with turbo, if you wanted, since the were related to the 2.3 ( or 2.2, I can't remeber) hemi charger that came out back then.

I saw a 80's 4 banger Charger fold in half after hitting a Nissan 4x4 Kingcab.

80s Chrysler product's were really cool in my mind. The conquest. The omni glh. The charger. All really neat turbos. Now 30 years later everyone is doing small displacement with turbos. They were ahead of their time. I think it was the 80# maybe early 90s when when they released the Shelby Dakota and the Dakota convertible. Those were really neat

A few years ago I found a k car convertible with a turbo setup. It was too far gone to save though. I wanted it though.

My grandma had a K car, me and a buddy smuggled a couple of pretty young things into a drive-in theatre in it, many moons ago.

It was amazing, pull the spare, and you had room for two flats of beer and two teenage girls. with room left over.

It was a different time then.

I think that was an advertising pitch!

Dad bought k car wagon back in 90. He drove it for 2 years and something happened. He tore the head and such off the engine. He never put it back together. Probably blew a head gasket. It was sitting in the yard for a few months and I shot the back glass out with my bb gun. I don't remember how it happened...i do remember getting a whipping for it! I was way more careful with where I as shooting after that....

I have always wanted one of these!

They did have a tendency to blow head gaskets.

I knew a guy that had one of the turbo Chargers.

I used to give him a hard time about not being able to keep up to my '76 Charger SE.

Since it was parked and blown at the time it was an easy boast

Your Rampage is one of the very few that I've seen that isn't a rust magnet. Thought they were good looking.

No problem on the hijack.  I like reading all posts.

 

Seems turbo's are a very popular upgrade, maybe because they are easy to do because of the turbo Chargers having all the parts, electronics, etc.  I like the Rampages because they are cheap to feed like an econo-box car yet can haul some things. 

My 6 cylinder F150 gets 11 mpg on a good day so on a real good day the Ford stays parked.  Rampage gets 31-33 mpg regularly. 

People in town must be getting used to seeing it because I haven't gotten an offer to purchase it under the windshield wiper in over a month now.
