Contemplative Carboniferous Conjecture: 1970 Chrysler 300 Convertible

The Carboniferous epoch, which occurred within the Paleozoic era spanning from approximately 360 to 300 million years ago, is renowned for hosting one of the most significant mass extinctions in Earth’s history, the Permian-Triassic event. It’s also the era during which the majority of present-day coal reserves were created. The automotive epoch that most closely could be equivalent to the Carboniferous epoch is the 1960s, when giant metal dinosaurs roamed the road in search for new asphalt to pound down. It was a time when automotive design and innovation were at their peak, much like the lush plant life that thrived during the Carboniferous period – plant life that was blissfully unaware it would be squished into submission over the next 100 million years and eventually burned to power televisions and incandescent light bulbs. This ancient relic of the classiccariferous era is on borrowed time. Find this 1970 Chrysler 300 bidding for $16,200 reserve-not-met in Braceville, IL via ebay motors with 6 days to go.
