Default we all know

that this same car, if not kept up and maintained well, can give you nightmares!!! i think this one wins the award for the most aggressive, ominous looking front end

the 72 grille was pretty tame by comparison

Default the interior

finish looks no better than a mid sized car. look at that green back seat and headrests. it took Chrysler Corp at least a year to improve the interior finish the point where it matched Ford & GM

Default in some way

when looking at the front and back it kind of replicates the 73 Buick Electra in a viscious almost shark-like look--

--but everyone LIKES the Electra!!

I don't think too many like the New Yorker of 73!!

Default zooming in on the

front end makes it look scary indeed! looking at it closely it kind of resembles the 69 Fury.

I love the huge chrome fenders on those 70's cars! Those were real bumpers that could take a bashing, unlike today's cars. The only drawback of that era was the early emissions control system on those small-blocks that severely restricted hp.

Default I remember

the Mopars did better in 73 than GM and Ford in terms of driveability in CR's tests. They at most only required one restart from the emissions controls
