Being a huge Charger fan I have a large collection of photos of Mopes, & my particular interest is just how close it became to being turbine powered.

Yes it does, over at www.dodgecharger.com we got into an interesting discussion over who was stealing what designs from whom - that whole fast back/tunnel back double diamond '66 GTO Vs. '68 Charger and "Coke Bottle" trend. Plus, everyone always comments on how much the Chrysler Ghia Turbine looked like a T-bird. I'm sure glad they went in an entirely new direction when the Charger was finally introduced.

Here is a link to a Feb 1958 edition of Popular Science that has an article on how and why the automakers spy on each other. The article includes the famous story about how both Ford and Pontiac had similar spinner grilles set for '49. The spying prevented Pontiac from looking like they had copied Ford and they did a crash program to come up with a new grille.

http://books.google.com/books?id=3CU...page&q&f=false

The similarity of the Chrysler Turbine car of '63 to the T-Bird was because it was designed by Elwood Engle (famous for the slab-side Lincoln and T-Bird) who Chrysler had lured away from Ford to design the car.

I feel your pain farmergal, it's so frustrating to watch our past greatness deteriorate like that. Too bad the dollar rules, but I guess buildings have to "earn their living" just like the rest of us. That building is priceless art IMO, and could never be built today, which is reason enough to preserve it, but then again, where's the money. It never should have been left to deteriorate to that point, and even if restored now, probably will never reach it's original level of grandeur. Unfortunately, if someone doesn't step up and at least fix that roof, it's fate is sealed. Lets hope that some group can at least afford to stop the leaks and buy it a little more time, but in today's economy, I'm afraid that buildings days may be numbered.
Very frustrating to watch this happen all over our country, I've seen so many irreplaceable buildings disappear around here, such a shame
