Yeah, but it was the Chrysler Cordoba that had rich Corinthian leather.
Indeed:



It's funny to think of this as a "small" Chrysler.

Interestingly, I remember somebody I knew owned a Royal Monaco; I can't recall if it was a friend's dad, or somebody in my neighborhood, but the car seemed to be half a block long, and had the cool hidden headlamps.

Ah, the era of American cars being grossly underpowered, unsafe, poorly made, gas-guzzling pieces of shit.

Never ceases to amaze me how few HP American automakers managed to get out of their engines.

Good times.

late 70 and early 80s C3 corvettes had about 180HP. Look good but remind me of an air head. Sweet body with nothing inside but hot air.
