    A user has suggested to me that we add a K body forum to the site --

    I'm just looking to see what you all think about this? Yes or no?

    I am the one who has posed the question to Joey. I have been a member of the A-Body and C-Body Forums. I've owned a 64 Valiant, 65 Dart and a 67 Monaco. Currently I own a 86 Plymouth Reliant. I am a member here.

    There doesn't seem to be much interest online about K Cars. At least none that I've found. I like the Forums that Joey has put together. I like the people here. I really like the attitudes that most members have displayed, very helpful. K cars were made at same time as many M & J cars. Sort of cousins. I asking you all if a K Body Subsection of this Forum could be added here? I don't want to impose my will, but rather hope that you all would allow me and other K car owners to have a home here. Regardless of your thoughts I'll still check this place out as F,M and J cars are similar, at least in time, to K cars. Just looking for place to call home. That's all!

    if anything they deserve their own full FWD forum site along with other FWD variants. Like a K-FWDbodiesonly forum. Between them and minivans there should be more then enough enthusiasts out there to make it successful.

    Other then being made by Chrysler at the same time they don't have much in common with FMJ they're a different generation. FMJ is more related to the older mopars.

    I doubt there would be enough interest to sustain their own site

    We owned a light blue 1984 or 85 Caravan, with 3 row seating and a manual tranny. I remember that 3rd seat, which was removable, weighed a ton! I can't remember if we had a '84 or '85. Bought from Bill Pierre Dodge on Lake City Way in Seattle.

    I'm with Mike on this. It would make more sense if such a site would include L-bodies, K-bodies & possibly the P-car (Shadow & Sundance). However, the demographics for front-drive cars could be quite different (including the tuner crowd). If you look through the various for...bodiesonly sites, you can see many common advertisers. So the tricky part is whether these same ads would work on a FWD site.

    If that is the consensus then so be it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
    Will Let few more people add their thoughts.

    K-cars are hugely popular but everyone I know is in their 20s or 30s and on Instagram. They don't visit boards like this.

    Add the Dodge Daytonas, Plymouth Lasers, and the Shelby versions, and you may have enough of an audience to make the site viable.
