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.
For those of you who spent the recent winter months hibernating indoors, the anticipation of sunshine and clearer skies probably has you optimistic about the warmer temperatures ahead. Now that the weather is finally breaking in our favor, the only question is—how are you going celebrate the changing of the seasons? Our suggestion: Celebrate with a brand new 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible.
We know there are days when spring cleaning feels endless. Hopefully by the end of April, your garage is clean and your spring yard work is finished. If so (and, hey, even if not), it’s time to reward yourself by putting the top down and taking a drive in your brand-new 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible.
The Chrysler 200 with available S package is not just a great-looking vehicle, it’s what Chrysler Brand President and CEO Saad Chehab refers to as the “catalyst” behind our position as “biggest sales gainer of any retailer” in key areas of the market, namely California.
Catalyst vehicles like the 200S deserve special treatment sometimes—that’s an easy argument to make. In 2013, the Chrysler brand is rewriting the definition of “special treatment” with the release of the brand-new 2013.5 Chrysler 200S Special Edition, a limited-run 200S accentuated by a number of unique new features, including select interior refinements stemming from our partnership with Carhartt®.
What do all these new features look like? Watch this video to find out.
