The 2014 Concours d'Elegance of America will honor the work of famed chief designer Virgil Exner with an unprecedented display of Chrysler Corporation's 1955-1961 "Forward Look," a daring two-pronged styling revolution that changed the look of the American car.

First up were the "jet-age"1955 Plymouths, Dodges, DeSotos, Chryslers and Imperials. Then came the 1957 models: With sky-high fins, these "longer, lower and wider" dreamboats sent competitors scrambling to catch up.

The St. John's display will tell the story of "The Forward Look," with carefully selected examples from each generation of the genre. Virgil Exner Jr., retired Ford designer and son of Virgil Exner, will be an honorary judge and will also be conducting a seminar on the development and evolution of the "Forward Look" cars.

Our 1969 Chrysler 300 convertible has received an invitation to participate in the post war 1960-72 class. It'll be the only Mopar amoung 11 other full sized convertibles of the era.

I wish my 61 Fury convertible was up to that level to be displayed with the Exner group. Maybe in the next couple of years.
