The bad news is that Chrysler has declared bankruptcy. The good news is that they will merge with Fiat, and Fiat wants to re-enter the American market. I've owned several Fiat convertibles over the years, including my first purchase of a Fiat 850 in Berkeley, accompanied by Bill Dalton, who was terrified at the ride across the Bay Bridge. Later, I owned several Fiat Spyders with various engine sizes. Oh, I also once owned a Chrysler LaBaron convertible, fully tricked out with all leather interior and more automatic knobs that you could shake a stick at. What a wonderful American boat, much better than the 1965 Pontiac GTO I owned in high school, which drank a quart of oil for every tank of gas.
