1961 Dodge Dart Pioneer

from Alex Emond, in southern Saskatchewan:
"From the clear steering wheel , the odd corner tail lights and those Jetsonlike fins ... it is just so whacky that you have to wonder how it ever got past the concept stage...a car that I wasn't familiar with. It too is probably quite rare. Somebody , somewhere, would love this thing . Long and wide, like the Mississippi."---AE
