The  Chrysler Turbine Car

As I sat in Miss Moses music class at Thomas Jefferson Jr High in 1964,  I heard a sound through the open window that was rare for the valley, even at the airport. It was the sound of a jet engine,  and it was right outside the window.  I looked out to the corner of Quarrier and Morris Streets, and there.... at the light.... was the most amazing car I'd ever seen:  It was the experimental Chrysler Turbine car!   It had a sound like a jet taking off,  and I would hear that sound many times from the music room, and every time I had to get up to see it again.  Miss Moses failed to see what all the fuss was about.

Could you blame me for looking?

The car would run on anything... including Moonshine.
