It’s a fact. Consumer tastes and vehicle design change drastically over time. What may seem like incremental changes from year to year and from model to model, suddenly appear extreme when the cars are placed on broader timelines (think in terms of decades or generations).
Regardless of what goes in and out of fashion, one thing never seems to change: the appeal and the feeling of cruising down the highway in a sleek convertible with the top down.
For this month’s Forward Look Photo Album, we’ve searched the web and our own files to bring you a selection of classic Chrysler convertible vehicles, from the 1930s to present day. Please enjoy this gallery as we all look forward to warm weather and another long summer of convertible cruising.
