Re: [Chrysler300] G feature





Not much of a 300G story, but maybe someone can turn it into one?  Back more than just a few years ago (certainly in the 90's), there was a guy named Robert who lived in a big old house with his mother (his mother's house I believe) in Lexington MA.  He had placed an ad in what was a popular weekly publication called The WantAdvertiser for a 300G for only $1500.  Of course, I was away on a business trip when this particular edition came out, so when I called about the vehicle I was told it had been sold to a guy in Leominster, MA.
I talked to him long enough to find two pieces of information:
1. The name and phone number of the person who bought the car, and 
2. That he also had a black 300G convertible that he did not advertise.
I tracked down the guy in Leominster, who had learned that the rusty G was going to be too much of a restoration for him to accomplish, even though it was a running driving car.  I went for a ride in it, and it was indeed a pretty rusty New England car, but in running condition.  The guy who bought it wanted to double his money on the flip, so I passed on it.
I then went to visit Robert in Lexington to check out his black G convertible, which turned out to have a black interior and black top.  His live-in girlfriend was sunbathing in the backyard as I pulled in (embarrassing) only about 20 feet away from the driveway where the G was parked.  Unfortunately, he was not interested in selling the convertible, as it was his only remaining G.  I checked in/bugged him about the car for almost a year afterwards, hoping he would change his mind since he was obviously not going to restore it, having no money of his own and just hanging out at mom's house.  After that I lost track of him and the vehicle and move on as I found a G couple in Colorado and eventually my current G convertible.  I never got either VIN number for the cars, so I don't know if they are now fabulously restored somewhere, rusted away to nothing, or somewhere in between.  If anyone knows of these cars, it would be interesting to find out what eventually happened to them.

Happy New Year everyone in 300 land!

We need some 300-G stories. We have a couple in and yes I will write one. We need more, long or short. You know the drill.

Please include a photo or more. Please do not embed the photo in a document, send as a separate attachment. Or by US Mail.

Be a part of 300 history. I'll need these in three weeks: January 25

Thanks,
