  1. Awesome 1961 Plymouth, one of my fave cars! Designers at Chrysler must have been smoking some serious weed in the early 1960s. This Plymouth, as well as Dodges, DeSotos and Imperials, were totally far out:


  2. This car is just down the street from me & I walk past it all the time. I wish whoever owns it would fix it up because it has so much potential. They certainly don’t make them like this anymore!

  3. I like seeing older cars like that with the patina. You can see that they still take care of it, by the clean hubcaps and shiny chrome.

    • I like the car too & the outside is kinda cool but it’s not really that well taken care of. The interior is completely shot & the chrome is missing from around the headlights. I’ve never seen anyone drive it but it moves once a week to avoid street cleaning so it must run.
