The stress, while designing this car, must have been on being different. No doubt it is different than anything you might have seen before but that doesn’t make it better necessarily. It is a customized 1990 Chrysler LeBaron and is currently up for sale on eBay. The design seems to be more of a cut and paste job than an original design. It seems to be a random mix of bits and pieces from numerous eras and styles. But unfortunately what emerges in the end is neither attractive nor impressive.
Our point of view is strictly from a design perspective but it could have an appeal for those who like to be different just for the sake of being different. The seller of the automobile has positioned it on eBay as a head-turning advertising vehicle, parade car, custom collectible, or just a conversation piece for the auto shows. And they are right to the extent that it is capable of attracting attention because of its ungainly and unusual looks.
The bright red paint scheme, the chrome moldings and wheels all aim to attract attention and turn heads of onlookers. It is a brash car with a lot of attitude. The pricing of the car is not just reasonable but outright low at just $7,995. That is not a high price to pay for being different. It is human instinct to seek attention and the easiest way to get it is by being different. You would be surprised to know the extent people go to in order to appear different. This Chrysler LeBaron is a simple example.
