1997 Chrysler Sebring Still Running

Auburn Hills, MI –Chrysler Chairman C. Robert Kidder announced at a press conference earlier today that one 1997 Chrysler Sebring in the US was still being driven regularly.  “It’s a testament to the quality of the Chrysler product when a vintage car like that is still used as a daily driver,” Kidder said.  “Just think: this car is on its third president, has seen the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and has crossed parts of two millennia!  Who said America builds cars that don’t last?”

The car in question, a champagne 1997 Sebring LXi with 165,432 miles, is currently owned by Tom DeFerran of Spartanburg, South Carolina.  When reached for comment, DeFerran said the car was his by default.  “My parents gave it to me for free.  No way in hell I’d have paid money for it,” he told reporters.  “I’m pretty cheap and this car gets me to my job at Wal Mart most of the time.  That’s good enough.”  Not to be outdone, General Motors issued a press release saying they had found a pair of 1993 Pontiac Trans Sports in a Detroit junkyard that “would probably start up after a little tinkering.”
