The hemi-powered rear wheel drive sedan is worth every pen- ny of its $38,010 base price and the optional equipment that brought our test drive model to $43,435 would be hard indeed for any car lover to leave out. I guess I'm still smarting from Sunday's send-off of my two grandchildren by youngest daughter Deirdre and her Mari- ano, because I instinctively cast my eyes first on the govern- ment safety ratings, which the 300C aced. The 300C earned the top five stars in safety for both driv- er and passenger in a frontal crash, equaled by five stars in the side crash tests, and earn- ing four stars in the rollover category. Topping the list is more safe- ty-related equipment, to-wit: advanced multi-stage airbags, plus side curtain airbags front and rear, heavy duty ABS (an- tilock braking system), brake assist, all-speed traction con- trol, and electronic stability program. So now that we know we and our family are safe, let's sit back in the comfortable leather seats and see what goodies come stan- dard on this creation. It is Summer in South Louisi- ana and that means hot like you would find on, say, the surface of Mercury.
