The Chrysler LeBaron was by 1987 a K-car pile of parts that was using the legendary Chrysler badge as an attempt to trick people into thinking it was a personal luxury car.

There was a time from the 1930s through the 1950s when wood was used to augment automobile body panels. In the 1960s, actual wood was phased out in favor of decals and plastic inserts, presumably for ease of manufacture and safety reasons. By the 1980s, faux wood grain paneling had degenerated from simulation to near […]
