The one without the over-the-top flags, sure. And I wouldn't attack people in the pub with a chainsaw when they cut me off.

Must be something wrong with me.  I think it looks kinda cute.  That and I am really happy that the current owner is taking excellent care of the vehicle.  

Gotta love auto aficionados.  They drive so carefully and safely.

I'm sorry, did you just say that you thought the build quality on that one was too shoddy to be a 1983 Chrysler product?  I'm still trying to process that statement, so let me stew on that a bit and I'll get back with you.  

Edit: I finally got your point, but still, look at the trim line on the rear quarter and then look at all these (I dare you) https://www.google.com/search?...  Yes, it's shoddy, yes it's factory (that may have been a slogan that Iacocca contemplated for a bit as 'not the worst tagline').

Correct me if I'm wrong,
but that looks like a home modification woody.

Justine drove a Chrysler convertible of that vintage before we were married. The story as I remember it: The top got slashed by some punk in the City and when she was asking around about repairs, someone said that her hometown high school auto shop class would love to take it on. So they left it out uncovered until the entire vehicle had to go to the scrapyard.

The first Barracuda.
 
Valiant with teeth...

 
And a big wrap- around rear window.

 

Sounds hemispherical...

 They only put the Hemi in the '68 of that A Body style. And that was a special run... build code BO29 with only about 75 built.
The A Body was pretty tiny in the engine bay. So it was a very tight squeeze for Chrysler to pull that off.
They were built for one purpose... to dominate the NHRA Super Stock class.
To this day, they still are at the top of the Super Stock class.

In time, good ideas will come to fruition. The problem is... it takes some time.
You can't legislate it into existence overnight.

 

Yet all the advancements in ICE that you proclaimed (correctly) down below were the result of... legislation.
 
Yes... but it can't come as quickly as the politicians demand.

 

And neither did the other changes.  My point is that everyone seems upset that the .gov is legislating things rather than letting 'the free market' decide. But all the examples of progress you cite are direct results of legislation (regardless of the time it took to make them good).   I'd even say the rate of progress on electrics is substantially faster than ICE. There are many non-legislative reasons for this too, but legislation has been a driving force for much of it.
