One of the new vehicles the president did not notice during his sojourn to the Washington Convention Center was the Mopar 75th anniversary edition Chrysler 300. Chrysler is displaying factory customized designs of its 300 sedan, Fiat 500, Jeep Compass and Dodge Dart at the Chicago Auto Show, the world’s most significant auto show, which starts a 9-day run at the McCormick Place Exposition Center Friday.
Obama’s last big American car before he switched to presidential limousines, Marine Corps helicopters and Air Force One was a grey 2005 Chrysler 300C he leased from 2004 until 2007.
Obama put less than 19,000 miles on it before switching to a Ford Escape Hybrid. His old Chrysler was purchased by its current owner, Tim O’Boyle, from a lot.
