    Always a classic.

    I suspect a head-on shot of all that grill work, looking up the "nose" would be an interesting perspective of this beauty.

    Very nice....both shots . I was never a Chrysler guy, but there was a time when they produced some of the most creative designs around. And these products often had leading technical and engineering credentials. I used to tangle with some of their muscle-car-era 426 c.i. Hemi cars at the track when I was running a !970 427 c.i. Chevelle. There's a lot about all that I really miss.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Chrysler also got a wind tunnel in 1930 and this car is certainly an expression of that.
    Aerodynamics only started to develop along with fighter aircraft being tested in wind tunnels after WW1.
    Trains were streamlining at this time as well; 'twas very hip
