Cool Wheels

Today I saw a Chrysler 300 on the streets of Nairobi for the first time. (Billionaire Businessman had spotted one last year) It’s a sleek, fast machine and is used by the South Korean Ambassador. I wish DT Dobie (who have the Jeep franchise) would ship more Chrysler 300’s to Nairobi. It would be the perfect car for government executives to use, is more affordable that the popular GK (and getting far too common) E-class, and would fall within most government procurement limits (except engine size).
