I forget picture logistics?

Been a while since I've posted any pictures on any of Joey's forums. I forget. Can I load pictures right to this website from my digital camera? Or do I need a 3rd party host?

Wiper issues on a 1987 5th Ave…

Looking at a 1987 5th Avenue for sale about 10 miles from my home today.

1987 5th Avenue…

Looking at an 1987 5th Avenue tomorrow. Did see it today but a rotted fuel hose started leaking. Owner fixed it and I'm going back tomorrow to look at it again and try a test drive. It had been sitting for about four weeks. Started right up.

There is a small travel bag in the trunk filled with two large manilla folders stuffed with all the repair records from the 1st owners for the 28 years they owned it. Wow!

Anything specific issue to a 5th Avenue I should look for?

Trying set up an appointment this weekend to go see a 1990 New Yorker. WWW.automobile-catalog.com says it's a C body. True?

Looking at a 1989 New Yorker. What designation would a 1989 Chrysler New Yorker be? C body? M body? F Body?


Checking online search I find it could be a K or C body.
