Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I have two things in common with a car I had never even heard of. Like the Dodge Aries, I was also born in 1981 and my birthdate just so happens to put me under the Aries astrological sign.

Now whether that means I was born under a good or a bad sign, I have no idea. But when it came to the success of the Dodge brand, the Aries signaled nothing but good news.

Narrowly avoiding one marketing mishap, the Dodge Aries ultimately enjoyed impressive sales and evolved over the course of its rather short, nine-year span, to reflect the demands of its consumers.

So, what was the Dodge Aries, besides a Chrysler k-car manufactured in the 1980s?

You’ll be hard-pressed to find one at your area Dodge dealers in Miami, but if you could, this is what it would look like.
