1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue & 2012 Ram 1500 QC Big Horn
Beautiful ride Imperialfan! What's your favorite feature on it?
Yes, that's mine. I bought it and had it shipped to Ohio from Florida in June 2020. I posted 3 short videos of it on YouTube and should have it back from the shop very soon with a front suspension refresh, engine overhaul, and fuel injection system installed. I plan to enjoy the car a lot next summer, then get it back in the shop to upgrade the leaf springs and swap out the 7.25 for an 8.25 and upgrade the gearing to 2.94 or 3.07. This is my 5th Fifth Avenue and my 2nd 88. Here it is a couple months ago in the shop and very dusty lol, it's been there for a while. I need to have them flip the tires so the whitewalls are out.Ah, gosh, dm5thAvenue--I'm so new with it, it's hard to pick. But I think I have to say the color--that's basically why I bought it. Is the car in your avatar yours?
And thanks to everyone for all the maintenance tips! I need to have a talk with my mechanic soon, and I'll bring all this up.
As far as rap I think I better keep my day job lol! As far as the fuel injection, it's something I've always had a curiosity with on these cars and I probably jumped the gun in having this installed. I only say that because it's been in the shop for a year and a half. With my work schedule and lack of work space at home, I sent it to the local Chrysler dealer for the work. Looking back, I should have just had the front suspension refresh performed first and had the pins tightened in the computer connections so I could enjoy the car a bit, but it is what it is.It looks very nice. Being your 5th 5th Avenue, you've almost got the beginning of a rap lyric there!
I'd be interested in knowing how you switched to FI. I've been thinking about going in that direction with mine but am not sure about the expense and complexity.
