In my world, only Riccardo Montalbán is allowed to utter the words "rich Corinthian leather." No one else can do it right.(Hey thanks for the compliment last time... I actually USED to live in Cleveland. Until I lost my job there! EconomyLOL!)
Look at him fondle that sexy upholstery! Man, were cars ugly in the 80's!
2:57 - Look at how crappy the bobbing suspension is at low speed.
My uncle had a LeBaron. While 80s cars looked like shit or transformers, my uncle's leBaron went head on with an Escalade and fucked WON that battle.
My Grandfather had an '87 Town and Country and the fancy electronic read outs died during a road trip. He couldn't tell how fast he was going or if he had gas.
1500 commercials a day. So I average over 1 commercial a minute and don't sleep? That statistic is presented as if we are not aware of how many minutes are in the day.
Well, now I know why Chrysler is in its current state.
We had a maroon Horizon when I was in high school. It was a fine little car, with a sex stain on the upholstery of the back seat...
This video totally got me in the mood.
I used to drive my parents' 92 Buick around which had the same sort of aesthetic and I dunno, I think there's something to be said for having a big buffet breakfast at your mid-market golf club and then cruising to your suburban three-story home in one of these plush babies.
I blame the Plymouth Voyager/Dodge Caravan for enabling my cheap ass father to attempt to haul my large family around the country on budget family vacations. We all hate eachother now because of you, Chrysler.
This entire video tape. That's what I want.
Chrysler has never stopped turning-out the crappiest, ugliest, piece of junk cars. Why oh way has the government bailed-out these losers???!!!
All car ads in this era had to feature two bouncing white people holding hands.
Luxury = whole lot o' padding. So that's why American cars lost the battle for fuel economy to the Japanese and Europeans. They gave consumers gadgetry and instantly-dated styling rather than compact cars.That said, I grew up with a Chrysler 400 (cheaper alternative to LeBaron) and I still remember the car saying "The door is ajar" every time the door opened. Completely useless, but cool to an 8 year old.
