What is a Special Deluxe?

The Plymouth Deluxe was a full-size automobile, produced by the Plymouth division of Chrysler, from 1946-1950. It came in two trim levels, the Deluxe and the top-of-the-line Special Deluxe.

Plymouth’s new models for 1946 were once again offered in two series, the P15S Deluxe and P15C Special Deluxe. Deluxe body styles included a four-door sedan, two-door sedan, club coupe, and business coupe. Special Deluxes added a convertible coupe and wood-body station wagon to the line-up. Waiting lists were common at dealerships. Those wanting a new car placed their name, and often a cash deposit, with the dealer.

NEIL YOUNG’s music and songwriting—which span forty years and thirty-four studio albums of rock and roll, folk, and country, with shadings of blues, techno, and other styles—are among the most enduring and popular in modern times. From his early days with Buffalo Springfield through his solo career and collaborations with Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crazy Horse, and dozens of other notable musicians and groups, Young is acclaimed for both his musical talents and his artistic integrity. With a major hit in every decade since the sixties, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. A well-known political activist, environmentalist, and philanthropist, Young has been involved in several causes, notably cofounding Farm Aid and the Bridge School, which assists children with physical impairments and communication needs.

NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Young is not done with writing memoirs.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has a deal with Blue Rider Press for a book focusing on his passion for cars, while also featuring stories about his life in music.

Blue Rider, an imprint of Penguin Random House, told The Associated Press on Monday that the new book is scheduled for the fall and is currently untitled. Young’s first memoir, ‘‘Waging Heavy Peace,’’ was a best-seller published by Blue Rider in 2012.

New Rider says the second memoir is an ‘‘eclectic amalgam’’ that also will include artwork by Young and his thoughts on politics and the environment. The 68-year-old musician is known for such songs as ‘‘Heart of Gold,’’ ‘’Like a Hurricane’’ and ‘‘Southern Man.’’
