The lack of a B-pillar on Nassau allows a smooth and elegant look for the car, and the classic four-door sedan-style configuration means front and rear comfort for passengers. Chrysler has built a reputation for always having one, two or even a few concept car "Oh-mi-gods!" at the LA Show. However, perhaps because of the "Under New Management" sign which was recently hung outside the company's Highland Park, Michigan, headquarters by Cerebus, the private investment firm which now owns the company (meaning Chrysler's corporate bigwigs don't have to worry about pleasing the company's stockholders anymore, because there aren't any), the expected (and always hoped-for) "Wow - wees!" were simply not in attendance this year; Chrysler had this single concept car on display, Dodge and Jeep didn't have anything of real note to explore for disappointed show-goers (and we journalist-types, always looking for something ... anything ... to punch-up our show coverage).
