These photos date from way back in early 2008, when I was just a Denver visitor and not a resident, and today seems like a good day to share them.

Looking at that, is it any wonder that the US auto industry was THE world leader in the early '60s?

This is what American cars are supposed to be all about, big, flashy, over the top, with a gas swilling V8, a car that announces success, swagger, and confidence.

Back then, most things coming out of Europe and Japan were tiny little tin cans with anemic engines that struggled to hit 60 in less than a minute.

Somewhere, we lost our way, badly, the the current state of the industry shows it. The only reasonably successful cars in Chrysler's lineup are the big, RWD LX models - coincidence? Detroit has got to re-learn how to play to its strengths.
