Previously: Thought you might appreciate a picture of 7391 which is owned by Bernard Roberson of Bloomfield, Detroit, Michigan USA. The occasion was an employee fun day at Chrysler HQ when everyone was invited to take a day off and bring in their "alternate" vehicles for everyone to enjoy. 7391 attracted much interest amongst the chrome and fins of the classic American muscle cars and attracted comment in at least two US auto trade publications that featured the event. This was the Champ that we took on the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise in Detroit a couple of years ago.  The building in the background is the Daimler Chrysler HQ building in Auburn Hills, Michigan (about 25 miles north of downtown Detroit) and features a styled advert for the Dodge PT Cruiser. I had a busmans holiday with Bernard this year and we got some odd jobs done on it. We also took it out on the annual "Woodward Avenue dream cruise" in Detroit - 16,000 classic vehicles watched by a million people over the weekend! Sitting in the Champ's passenger (i.e.left) seat caused some consternation turning round and taking photo's while at speed! RH drive vehicles are a rarity in the US.
