Wishes on Wheels - Chrysler Forward Look
Forward Look was a design theme employed by Virgil Exner in styling the 1955 through 1961 Chrysler Corporation vehicles. When Exner joined Chrysler, the company's vehicles were being fashioned by engineers instead of designers, and so were considered outmoded, unstylish designs. Exner fought to change this structuring, and got control over the design process, including the clay prototypes and the die models used to create production tooling. 300C Production 1957 After seeing the P-38-inspired tailfins on the 1948 Cadillac, Exner adopted fins as a central element of his vehicle designs. He believed in the aerodynamic benefits of the fins, and even used wind tunnel testing at the University of Michigan—but he also liked their visual effects on the car. Exner lowered the roofline and made the cars sleeker, smoother, and more aggressive. In 1955, Chrysler introduced "The New 100-Million Dollar Look". With a long hood and short deck, the wedgelike designs of the Chrysler 300 letter series and revised 1957 models suddenly brought the company to the forefront of design, with Ford and General Motors quickly working to catch up. The 1957 Plymouths were advertised with the slogan, "Suddenly, it's 1960!" A Mopar oil filter from the late 1950s bears the Forward Look logo Fins soon lost popularity. By the late 1950s Cadillac, Chrysler and many other marques had escalated the size of fins until some thought they were stylistically questionable, and they became a symbol of American excess in the early 60s. 1961 is considered the last of the "Forward Look" designs. The 1962's were referred to as "plucked chickens" by Exner.

78 Dodge Diplomat vs Ford Granada Ghia & Olds CutlassTom Kite featured
78 model year. This basic car stayed in production until 1989. Diplomats were used extensively as Police Cars and Taxi Cabs after 1981 when the Aspen and St Regis were removed from the Dodge Line Up. It proved to be a very successful car for Dodge. Diplomats were based off the Dodge Aspen. They share much in styling. Even the doors of the car were the same. Diplomats phased out the stylish two door and wagon in the early eighties. Wink Martindale is the voice over for this video.

Fashioned by Function - Chrysler Airflow
The development and testing of the revolutionary, streamline designed Chrysler Airflow. The Chrysler Airflow is an automobile produced by the Chrysler Corporation from 1934 to 1937. The Airflow was one of the first full-size American production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. Chrysler made a significant effort at a fundamental change in automotive design with the Chrysler Airflow, but it was ultimately a huge commercial failure.

Just Arrived - The 1986 Chrysler New Yorker
It just came today... My dreams have finally been fullfilled!!!!!!!! This car also has auto level air ride suspension! Note: It only has 52,800 miles on it. The mileage on the instrument cluster was from a replacement one. Also, the radio is not original. I would like to find the original one and install it instead.

Junkyard Cars Chrysler Imperial Hot Spot
Here is a junkyard I found in Fresno, California. There was about 5 acres of nothing but Chrysler Imperial's. I also ran across an old Jeepster, and 29 Chevy truck, some old hit and miss motors, and an Guiberson 9 cylinder radial diesel tank engine. There was a lot more to look at but I did not have time to see everything.
