Saturday 26th February 1983
The 75th anniversary edition of the Chicago Auto Show opened. Chrysler Corporation debuted two sporty models: the Dodge Daytona and related Chrysler Laser. Both models could get a turbocharged engine, but Daytona’s would be the consumers’ preference. Concept vehicles seen in Chicago shown included the Buick Questor, Ford Probe IV, Continental Concept 100, and Nissan NRV II research vehicle. Convertibles were in fashion once again with Ford’s Mustang, Chevrolet’s Cavalier, and Pontiac’s Sunbird all displayed in ragtops.
