I think we can be proud of Chrysler’s involvement. They were a major contributor to the effort.

Haven't been for decades and neither has my alma mater - Rockwell International.

I was 17 and drove my 1962 Polara 500 with 413 Long Rams up to watch and support the Apollo 11 Launch. So I would say, Dodge also supported the Moon Landing/ stirthepot laugh2

Back in those days, that was a risky endeavor for spectators, as few launched OT or even the same week as planned.
Regardless, something felt like this was history in the making.

It was impressive, from 12? miles away, sounded like bacon cooking.

On Yellow Bullet, of which I am not a member, this same thread shows up. There is a guy there that has a story that had his car body used in NASA testing. I have heard this story from the guy himself. If you have heard it, it is a very interesting and complex story at that. But, having to work 35 years where I did, none of it is plausible. None.
