    Where do you keep coming up with these? Did the finned Chrysler one get finished, and if so, is it seaworthy?

    I have always wanted one, as weird as it may be . When I was a kid, I would see one sitting all abandoned and lonely in the brush as I dreamed from the school bus window.

    With '61 Imperial fins, if it stalls in the water, at least they'll catch the wind and let it blow you back to shore.

    Arnie - why????? Is a standard one not weird enough for you?

    I presume you know of this one sat on a live in barge on the Seine in Paris. I've been going to Retromobile for 20 years and have seen it every year since for many years.

    It belongs to a French architect, it's a 64 and he uses it regularly - there are some pictures of it going around Etoile.
