British Leyland gave the horrific Marina a new lease on life with a new grille and tail lights. Voila! The Morris Ital.
Alfa Romeo ARNA. Dull Nissan Pulsar 3/5-door styling with an old Alfa engine and electrics.
The '87 Allante. Take the Olds Toronado that was so bad, it killed the name off for good. Cut it up. Stick the worst American V8 ever made in it. Drive the front wheels. Fly it all over the world going massive expense just to get it built. Stick a manual top on it that wouldn't close, an interior that looked like a chiclet factory exploded in it, and sell it for $60k in 1987 dollars.
