About “The Black Stallion”

This was my family car AND my pride and joy... until it got wiped out by a semi in bumper-tp-bumper traffic on I-95 in Philly about a year ago. Trafgfic was moving at about 25 mph, and he just didn't slow down for it - must have been in a hurry! I was the third car from the tail end of the chain reaction crash that totalled nearly a dozen cars, killed a pregnant woman and a senior couple and sent 6 others, including myself, to the hospital. The truck driver was shook up but almost completely uninjured...

Once I got out of the hospital, I needed wheels, so that's where my Boxster comes into the story. I had the G.P. because we had a couple of teenagers, but they're both in college now, so we don't need two cars with back seats! My wife's Camry will do for that! I really hated for the Pontiac to go, since it was a quick, comfortable sedan, and I had personalized it to my taste, but since I'd always wanted a Porsche and could afford it, I replaced it with one!

 

Specs for “OLD CHRYSLERS NEVER DIE THEY JUST GO FASTER”

Also the name of a city in Spain, Cordoba was the name given to an intermediate personal luxury coupe sold by the Chrysler Corporation in North America from 1975 until 1983. The Cordoba was Chrysler's first model produced specifically for the personal luxury market and the original Chrysler branded vehicle that was less than full-size. While other up-market brands were expanding into smaller vehicles in the early 1960's with such models as the Buick Skylark and the Mercury Comet, the Chrysler Company adamantly and very publicly declared that Chrysler vehicles would never get any smaller. (This statement was dismissed within 15 years.).

The Cordoba's emblem was a stylized version of the Argentine Cordoba coin, rather than after the name of the city in Spain. The implication of the emblem was Hispanic, and this theme continued to be carried out with baroque trim on the interior, and using Ricardo Montalban, Mexican movie star, as the vehicles advertising spokesman.

Becoming one of Chrysler's very few genuine hits of the 1970s, the Cordoba was popular while the Chrysler Company itself teetered on bankruptcy. Production itself was over 150,000 annually though and the demand actually exceeded supply for its first couple of years. Nearly half of the Chrysler division production during this period was made up of Cordoba's.

Originally introduced in 1975 as an upscale personal luxury vehicle, the Chrysler Cordoba did well in the personal luxury market at the time that was large and growing. The Cordoba was a twin of the formalized Dodge Charger SE. Considered to be one of Chrysler's better efforts, the Cordoba was sleek, well proportioned and very graceful. Priced to compete with the Chevy Monte Carlo, the Ford Elite and the amazingly successful Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme..
