Last Night’s Dream: Colorful, Powerful and Fun

I may occasionally razz Virgil Exner for some of his foibles, but I’d sure like to have had dreams like this and actually see them executed into drivable form. The ultimate childhood fantasy come to life…

The 1955 Chrysler-Ghia Falcon, foreground in silver, came very close to going into production as Chrysler’s answer to the Corvette and Thunderbird. With hemi-power, it could have been a formidable competitor. Exner was deeply disappointed at that decision. The 1954 Dodge-Ghia Fire Arrow (yellow), and the 1957 Chrysler-Ghia Diablo (red) were two more concepts in the string of Exner-Ghia collaborations. I’ll take the Fire Arrow; I’m feeling a bit playful tonight. Which dream would you like to have tonight?
