No, this isn't another auxiliary club about American cars. It brings together information, photos, technical pages and news from owners of Chryslers and Imperials of the '50s and '60s. We invite you to add to it.

Letting the mouse pointer hover on a picture will bring up its caption (not all the pictures yet, but I keep working on it.) If advertising pop-ups bother you, get rid of them by clicking on their X, or just outside their window.
All the photos are from my own collection or from the other sites whose emblem-links are shown above, and we are most grateful to them for sharing. The letter F on a photo means it's a car residing in France, at least when the picture was taken. Please don't reproduce any photos without permission.
The translation of these pages is by Frank L. Peters Jr. of St Louis (Mo). Many thanks !!
