My dad took me to antique car shows in the 1960s in his Virgil Exner designed 55 Plymouth with its small fins and "forward look". He moved up to a used 1960 Chrysler Windsor hardtop in its exuberant forward style. Wow, that car could go! I can’t afford to acquire another 60 Chrysler so I keep driving and preserving a 55 Plymouth like dad's.

I really think the 1960 model Chryslers were Virgil Exner's best work. The pinnacle of his forward look vehicles. I can't think of a better looking Chrysler.
