8: Body Cladding
Body cladding is one of those things that most drivers don’t like. It decreases the value of a vehicle tremendously. Plastic body cladding loses its color after years of washing and parking in the sun. Replacing body cladding on a vehicle can be pricey, and on a ’90s car is downright impossible.
Likewise, many cars with body cladding have become relics of the past. The cheap plastic body paneling is not something that most drivers want to forget. The 1990s were an evolving state of design for the auto industry. Body cladding was just another way that automakers could rebadge an existing car.
