1980: President Jimmy Carter signs legislation giving a U.S. government guarantee to $1.5 billion in loans to Chrysler to help them stay open until they could bring some new vehicles to market. Chrysler, which also had to raise $2 billion on its own as part of the deal, would end up rebounding and paying off the loans seven years early in 1983.
