    Yeah I knew who Virgil Exner was, but I dont get how Art & Science ties into the Chrysler head of design from the 1950's

    That's what I though when I first saw the pics of that car.

    Stony, Virgil did so some very fine designs. Some of the later stuff however (like the 61 Dart & Valiant for example) is just strange (again, to me they seem to be "design by a committee" that doesn't consult with it's members).

    I can only hope that before I die, designers REdiscover visually pleasing proportions (something I think is lacking in about 98% of the current auto styling).

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    The new Imperial is going to "breakthrough" in design, so it will have its admirers and also its haters. Like the Cadillac STS & CTS. Many Cadillac loyalists dislike the STS as they were looking for a redisigned Seville, and that is definately NOT what was delivered. The Imperial will be very "stately" and elegant ~ do not look for avante garde or new wave styling. It's not about that. It's more about a modern interruption of what the 1960 Imps stood for, that being opulant interiors, and restrained elegant styling.
    "X" percent will love it AND "X" percent will hate it, and NOBODY will be in the middle, or undecided. My guess? 70% will love it & 30% will hate it. It will sell very well, mostly to 40-50 someones, who grew up in a MOPAR family, or have always like Imperials or who (such as me) have had Imps and were impressed with them. Hard Core Lincoln & Caddy people (better known as conquest sales) will be tough. But, then again, look at the Chrysler 300 sales!! Most ChryCo loyalists were pissed about putting the " 300 " badge on (GOD FORBID) a Four Door Sedan !

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    What was so wrong with the 1990-93 Imperials?? The only problem I see with them is they are K-car based. They look like a good competitor to a Park Ave/ Ninety Eight seeing as how they are a FWD/ V6 setup.

    Will the new ones compete with the S Class market, or the deVilles and Town Cars?

    I can't imagine why, since several years were offered in 4 door models.

    I guess the new one would look better in something other than shit brown, or maybe not!

    ROTFLMAO!

    I'll reserve judgement until I see more pictures. Like the idea of bringing back a great name, especially if it's done right.

    Now GM, build the Sixteen, dammit!

    Just my opinion, but those 1990-93 Imperials were one of the tackiest cars of recent memory. I haven't seen so much chrome slapped onto a car since the '58 Buick and Oldsmobile. Their K-car heritage make them even more insulting to the Imperial name.

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    Were the 90-93's reliable cars? Did they have any major problems? Or is it that they are tacky, bland looking cars?
    They had very nice looking seats with a full digital dash, which I like
