Obama was a Mopar Man
My mother drives a silvery Chrysler 300C sedan. She was all too happy to hear that once upon a time, so did Barack Obama. The 2005 Chrysler 300c is loaded with a V-8, GPS and leather seats. Obama rode for 19,000 miles before he green-graded to a Ford Escape Hybrid, according to reports. I don’t think moms will be bidding on almost President Obama’s former ride that starts out at $150,000 on ebay and has been rumored to draw bids in the $1 million dollar range. A Chicago restaurant manager purchased the 300c from Park Plaza Dodge in Forest Park, Ill.
“I bought the car and everything and after the fact when I was leaving the showroom, the salesman that was in there said, ‘You better hang on to that car,’ ” Tim O’Boyle said. “I said, ‘Why is that?’ He said, ‘It used to belong to Obama.’ ” “I couldn’t believe it,” said O’Boyle, who paid about $24,000 for the car. “It was immaculate. It was like brand new.”
I wonder if Obama has his eye on the hot-new Chrysler 200C EV, a more sensible solution for our-soon to be top ranking executive? Obama should consider Ralph Gilles’s latest ride for his motorcade. Gilles created the 300C, effectively transforming Chrysler’s entire lineup and now heads up design for Chrysler.
