    Let us keep in mind that those cars were not "rare", a “classic” or anything else at that time. It was an "experiment" and as posted by Mike66, they did keep several and send other to museums and collectors. Do any of you keep every single thing that comes across in your life? No, we keep a few of the things that are most important. No one should be upset or surprised here. Think of alllllll the experimental vehicles from alllllll the automakers throughout the world and name me the one that has kept every single one they built. On the other hand, those old time junk yards were a REAL environmental diZaster, with a capital Z.

    Bah, the Nucleon was a better car.

    Regardless of all the various comments and explanations and excuses for what Chrysler did, it would be much better if it auctioned these cars for at least their scrap value, instead of paying people and wasting energy and polluting the ecosystem in order to mindlessly destroy them.

    Man... I know its not logical for me to being almost crying about the destruction of a concept car.. (isnt that what museums are for)? But thats just awful. This is like watching the videos about cat and dog abuse in China.. and how they do horrible things to them. P.S.. In my diecast car collection.. I still have one they didnt crush.
