CAR'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1955 Chrysler Windsor Newport Hardtop
"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... for me, 1955 was the most exciting and memorable year ever for new-car introductions. ... My [car] came to me in 1983, with only 36,000 miles and in pristine condition. Today it still has outstanding original paint, chrome and the interior restored with new OEM materials. I love its sporty styling by [automotive designer] Virgil Exner, the optional chrome wire wheels and taking road trips in this comfortable car. It is a real cruiser!"
