1967 Chrysler NewportReview
Nice Ride And Very Few Still Out There So She Turns Heads. — This car handles very well for the size of it. It is not the largest car in the late 60s nor was it a premium model. However on narrow rural roads, passing another vehicle gets to be interesting at times. The car has power steering and power assisted brakes. However it takes 5 to 6 lanes to make a U-turn so any kind of maneuver takes planning. Some parking lots are nearly impossible due to the car length and width. I like the fact that there are so few of them left that everyone says it has been 40 years since they have seen one.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Long, smooth and surprisingly easy to maneuver. Roomy and lots of visibility.
Cons: Gas mileage could be better for a non-muscle car that won't burn tires.
