Re: [Chrysler300] Fwd: Hemmings Daily: 55 Chrysler for sale in NJ





Well, normally I wouldn't comment but this I feel can't go by without something from me.  Many, many items not correct on this car and I don't know where to start.

One question I have is why is this being discussed on our site as I thought we were dedicated to Letter Cars?

It has great tires with lots of tread left as well. Documentation for the history of the pickup is nearly none...Read More

In 1995, the tired facility was purchased and revitalized by Spencer Young Sr., who renamed it Rocky Mountain Raceways. Since then, the park has maintained a busy annual schedule that now includes oval track and motocross racing, but the facility's 50th year will be its last: Following the 2018 season, Rocky Mountain Rac...Read More

Old car factory to become new car museum

Old car factory to become new car museum
Posted by Daniel Strohl - Image via Google Street View. The cars going into the in-development Hackett Auto Museum might be largely of standard fare - a Model T, a Model A, a Mustang - but the history baked into the walls of the former auto factory that will hold them tells the tale of several nearly forgotten early 20th-century Michigan carmakers, including one who aimed to topple General Motors. Initially, the factory at 615 Hupp Avenue in Jackson, Michigan, housed a simple auto-parts supplier, the Lewis Spring and Axle Company, foun...Read More

So, that's just what we're going to do here. Share with us what you've done to foster enthusiasm i...Read More

The Corvair sport coupe that never was  - the 1968 Molzon Corvair
Posted by Kurt Ernst - 1968 Molzon Corvair. Photos courtesy Bonhams Auctions. In 1963, GM designer William Bill Molzon set out to build a car of his own, with some rather ambitious goals: It would accelerate faster than a Corvette, be as frugal as a Corvair, and out-handle a Lotus. The resulting one-off vehicle, the 1968 Molzon Corvair, not only met these goals but did so on a build budget of $2,000. Next month, Molzon's remarkable creation crosses the auction block in Arizona, part of Bonhams's 2018 Scottsdale sale. B....Read More
