My dad was one of

My dad was one of the millions of folks that bought a Chrysler K-car in the early 1980s. The car was the worst piece of junk that Detroit every created — the thin metal hood, the tinny speakers, the half-applied paintjob, the underpowered engine, the fake dashboard. Now along comes this crazy-looking Chrysler 300C, which is really and truly beautifully designed. It has all the exterior artfulness of a 1930s sedan and the look of a really mean, though less elegant, Bentley.
I’m sure I’ll never own one. But I find it very interesting that Detroit (and also Germany) are releasing more expensive, larger, and better engineered sedans as the American economy ostensibly continues to stink (meaning less buyers) and SUVs continue to stall (meaning more buyers).
