    Chrysler Simca 2 liters. What was the intention again?

    A luxury Chrysler Simca middle class with MPS And that multiple personality disorder was perhaps not so strange. Because besides the fact that this large middle class had been known as Chrysler, Simca and Talbot, its history was also rather confusing to say the least.

    Chrysler Valiant

    In an ultimate attempt to regain the customer, who had succumbed to a - smaller - European car in the XNUMXs, the American car industry had to plunge into the so-called compact car market. First came General Motors with the later so maligned Chevrolet Corvair, followed closely by the […] Sea
