We have just learned that

Chief Chamberlain passed away

January 6, 2017

"When a burly young man buys a high-revving muscle car new, the last thing he wants is mom hanging around. Bad-boy visions of peeling away in a plume of tire-squealing smoke could be hampered if he knows she's there.
Unless of course, she's buying the exact same car.
That's the story of Ron Baran, who at the age of 26 went to Cee Eddy Dodge in Chicago on May 21, 1969. The leadfoot loved the recent film "Bullit." While most swooned for actor Steve McQueen's Mustang, Baran had to have the henchmen's Charger".

For pictures and ..."the rest of the story" check out Matt Avery's column in the Northwest Daily Herald.
