Since I am a firefighter, I like seeing "M" bodies in firefighting, but this is the first "M" body wagon I've seen in the duty, truly an unusual set of photographs.  This Chrysler LeBaron wagon was photographed in the mid-1980's by Dave Arnold at a structure fire in Garland, Texas.  Dave said the angled shot was actually an accident.  The car isn't on a hill, he was loading and advancing his film and happened to catch a shot of the car in the process.  I'm glad he did.  The bottom shot clearly shows the car as a LeBaron, with his kids posing in front of it.

This is Jason Shafer's 1981 Chrysler LeBaron A38 Police Package.  He writes:

  Here are four photos of my '81 LeBaron. It's an actual A38 police package car. I bought it in June, 1998, outside of Bernie, Missouri (near Kennett, way down in the bootheel, home town of singer Sheryl Crow). I got it for $250, and it had two new tires and a new oil pump. Several mean letters from collection agencies were left in the car, so I have a good idea as to why it was sold.
  The owner told me the car had been used as a city car in Wintergarden, Florida. Her brother, a city employee, bought the car at auction for their mother. The mother then sold it to the daughter.
  It's got a 318 2bbl, an all vinyl interior, a plexi-glass windshield, and a broken rear door glass. The hood and trunk lid were bent and beat pretty bad. The car runs great, but it's rough all over. It had been white at one time, but it was primered over the flaking white paint. After I take my Professional Engineer exam in April, I plan to start working on the car.

We live in Puyallup, Washington and recently bought an '85 Fifth Avenue at an auto auction for $225. It is a standard 5th Avenue with leather, power options, and 177K miles. This is a nice runner and a smooth ride, and it seems to be all original including the paint & engine. We ordered a Carfax and found no history of problems or record of accidents/salvage/theft etc.
