Some of the “experts” might disagree with me here, but this 1991 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue is a real survivor car. Let’s be honest — how many great-uncles, grandfathers, and widows (I’m assuming here that that was their demographic) do you suppose bought one of these with the intent on saving it for the next 30 years or so? These were mainly bought to be driven. And, depending on where one hung out, shown off. Luxury compacts, they were; but Chrysler in their advertising told us that the “…Fifth Avenue’s biggest advantage (was) the Crystal Key Program — longer protection than 1990 Rolls-Royce Corniche, Mercedes-Benz 380 SEL or Cadillac Sedan de Ville.” None of which, I'd imagine, were considered by many eventual Fifth Avenue buyers. It’s really neat to see one of these today. This one we came across a few weekends ago in Tonawanda.
