      That little cliff test was pretty convincing. No driver of course. I've heard things about those rigs all my life from guys who are now gone.

      Chrysler cars were not always the prettiest, but they certainly were built well and engineered ahead of their time. With all that steel, they were more like tanks with wheels.

        Car manufacturers in Europe: We must build cars to be small, light and as efficient as possible and they should carry 2 passengers maximum
        Car manufacturers in America: Lets build a civilian tank with a living room inside and throw it off a cliff.

        I might be biased but I like the American mindset

        All jokes aside, it is really incredible how far ahead of its time Chrysler engineering was

          Chrysler was on the leading edge in engineering,though the buying public could care less.

          All that engineering means nothing, if the car is ugly.
          My question is, why don't they use safety glass in side windows now?
