MotorWeek | Retro Review: 1990 Chrysler Imperial


NINETY EIGHT REGENCY

Recommended Posts

I loved the old ones from long ago, but these I always felt had been cheapened up much like the Cadillacs of the 80's. Sad, as the history of the nameplate is so rich. :)

Back when these were new, some Chrysler employees and dealerships referred to the white Imperials as "Virginia Slims".  The reference was obviously pejorative comparing the long but narrow (they could stretch is as long as they wanted, but width was limited by the K-car origins) to the long, slender brand of cigarettes.
