In this, the last installment of our “Hard to Park” series, we fully see the impact of downsizing on the overall lengths of some of our favorite Seventies machines. For 1979, Chrysler launched its redesigned “R-Body” sedans, each almost a foot shorter than the vehicles they replaced.
An exploration of the artistry and imagination of “dream cars” is running this spring and summer at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA). Seventeen forward-looking automotive concepts constructed between 1932 and 2001 will be on display in Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas presented in the museum’s Allen Whitehill Clowes Special Exhibition Gallery.
The exhibit opens on May 3 and is scheduled to run through Aug. 23.
