1955 Los Angeles Auto Show Part Twelve: Dodge

Including the world premiere showing of the 'gloriously beautiful' La Femme, first and only car designed especially for her majesty -- the American Woman.  It was a Custom Royal Lancer coupe painted sapphire white and heather rose.  It included an umbrella and handbag. Apparently her majesties weren't impressed -- the La Femme returned in 1956 but it wasn't a success.  Read more about it here.

The filler piece about Buick's ventiports...there were people who stopped buying Buicks because of the loss of "four-holer" exclusivity by the Roadmaster model.
