Some say that what one chooses to drive speaks volumes about his or personality and character, and presidents of the United States are no exception. While limos are obviously the required modes of transportation for those occupying the Oval Office, throughout the modern age our nation’s leaders owned – and were passionate about – their personal cars.
Similarly Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961) liked the 1956 Chrysler Imperial luxury sedan that featured the manufacturer’s “forward look” styling, which featured aircraft-inspired tailfins at the rear. An Eisenhower favorite, it packed a “HEMI” V8 engine and came to be known as “the Detroit car.”
"Ike" was a HEMI guy!
