Nothing says VIP like a gold font in all caps...except maybe the texture of that sick roof.

My family had one just like this except it was maroon rather than green. As I recall, it always stalled when attempting to make a left turn.

That was because of a flaw in the carburators of MoPars of this era. A sharp left turn
like the one you described would definately stall you out. That happened when the left
turn flooded the carb and drowned the engine. I don't think anyone ever found a cure
for the problem. Also, we used to wrap the distributor with saran wrap to keep the
moisture away from ignition system. I did this on my '77 wagon and my uncle's '66
Chrysler Newport as well. Nowadays, there's no way you can do this. The computer
wins everytime. Remember when the guy with a CB radio could kill your electronic
ignition? That happened a lot too.
