    DAM YOU MIKE, YOU HAVE UPSET ME, HA! HA! YES I OWNED A 56 CHRYSLER 300 B AND SINCE I SOLD IT YRS AGO, IT ALMOST THE CAR I MISS MORE THAN, THE OTHER CARS I HAVE OWNED, JUST CAN NOT UNDERSTAND WHY I LET IT GO, AS ITS NOW IN A CALIF MUSEUM. AND I HAVE GONE THERE MANY TIMES,JUST TO ENJOY SEEING WHAT A STUNNING CAR IT WAS. AND AS YOU KNOW I HAVE OWNED OVER 300 CARS SINCE I WAS 16, AND YES, I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY CAR GUYS WHO HAVE SOLD THEIR CARS ALSO, AND WE ALL HAVE THOUGHTS, AS TO WHY WE DID NOT KEEP THESE VERY SPECIAL CARS.
    BUT IT IS GREAT TO HAVE OWNED SO MANY GREAT CARS, OVER THE YEARS. JUST WISH I HAD A FEW OF THOSE, THAT WHEN I SEE ANY OF THE ONE’S LIKE I HAVE OWNED, YES, LIKE ALL OF THOSE GUYS WHO HAVE DONE THE SAME AS I HAVE DONE, REALLY MISS, SOME OF THOSE CARS THAT WE ALL ENJOYED.

    AT LEASE I DO HAVE THOUSAND OF DETAIL BROCHURE’s & I LOVE WHAT I STILL HAVE, SO I CAN LOOK AT ANY CARS THAT I EITHER OWNED, OR THOSE THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD, BUT I HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY TO OWN MANY CARS. VERY BEST TO ALL YOU CAR LOVERS.

    Hey Mike,
    When I was in the Peace Corps in the mid-’60s in upcountry Sierra Leone, the taxi of preference in urban or semi-urban places was the Peugeot 403. Almost every one had a Phillips record player attached under the dash. The rotating “bed” for the 45 rpm disks was cleverly suspended on what seemed like a gyroscopic mechanism so that while the casing crashed and banged over impossibly rutted dirt roads, the needle on the arm valiantly remained in place — and the music was clear (and loud). That’s probably how Chrysler achieved similar results.
