Imperial wreck

This Chrysler Imperial Le Baron never ran in all the years my father owned it, but I iked to sit in it as a kid and play with the push-button gears and swiveling driver's seat. It was a mile long and had rear fins to die for. The 1971 model (not this one) made Time magazine's list of the 50 worst cars of all time.

Copper-like tones, her beak half open, silver still shining chrome steel... An interesting close-up & face. I did the same (sat in) with the old Ford of my dad that stayed for rusting years in the garden too ;)

Beautiful. Those old cars have such personality and each one has an "expression" of some sort on it's front. Wrecks like this make me wish I had the money and talent to restore them.

Your history is great and this old car deserves more respect doesn't it :) Particularly since you remember it so fondly. Well taken photo.. wish it was in better working condition. I love old cars.
