Chrysler's Future Past

Listen to this car start up -- it sounds like an airplane. Or maybe it sounds exactly the way a car that looks this way should. It was created in 1955 for Chrysler by the Italian coachbuilder Ghia and designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi. It was designed for a gas turbine engine, but it never had one until Scott Grundfor, who bought it for $125,000 about eight years ago, put one in it.
