What happened in 2006?

22 updates, only 7 additions to the registry, and no Stutz Meet, not a very stutzy year?
Well, there were some other projects...
Bengt Dahlgren produced a mini sculpture of a 71 Blackhawk,
and we will get a high-quality model of a Blackhawk in scale 1:43.

Geneva 2006

Geneva old concept cars
I saw the prototype of the new Chrysler Imperial, absolutely not related to Exner, but you can compare it to the design that was created by Virgil Exner, jr., the 2004 Imperial.
