I SO Want this Car...

As we left our local bowling alley, this beauty was parked outside.

According to the auction company who sold her in 2013 (for $49,500), "The 1957 Chrysler Saratoga was one of the first models to get Virgil Exner's Forward Look design. Incredibly stylish at the time and flat-out gorgeous today, there is not a single line on the car that doesn't work. Powered by a 354 Spitfire V8 making 285hp. The body is 100% original sheet metal from nose to those glamorous fins. It has had one repaint in its original color of black. Gauguin Red had been added to highlight those glamorous fins. She has power brakes, power steering and floats along like a butterfly. All of her chrome has been replated and her stainless steel moldings have been buffed to a high luster. Her interior is drop dead gorgeous all done in NOS fabric with NOS silver chrome piping."
I was born in the wrong decade. I really do believe this car is the most glamorous car in any generation and I so want it!
