“By now, it is no secret that the new masters of Chrysler – with Bob Nardelli, its hand-picked CEO (formerly of Home Depot) – have decided to dump several models. Among these is the unusual and rather clever Magnum.
That is both a mistake and an opportunity.
…While Chrysler is losing both a lot of money and a brilliant vehicle in the Magnum, the public has been presented with an opportunity. The Magnum, especially the SRT8 version, will become a collector’s item. There is nothing like the production cancellation of a brilliant design to foster a future collectible that will have real and significant value.”
The author also goes on to mention the Plymouth Prowler, the Chevy SSR pickup and the last Ford Thunderbird.
