Plymouth Voyager II, 1991—1995. Всегда нравился его дизайн. Автомобиль аналогичен Chrysler Voyager и Dodge Caravan, но вариант Plymouth, легко отличимый по хромированной трёхсекционной решётке, я нахожу наиболее удачным.

According to Pete Estes, famously a force behind Oldsmobile’s Rocket V8 and general manager of both Pontiac and Chevrolet in the 1960s, the famous 1977 downsizing program began in the fall of 1972 with relatively modest goals - “take 400 lbs. out of each car.” Still in the early stages a year later, that goal was upped to 1,000 lbs. when the 1973 OPEC embargo struck. That’s when the real work began. The resulting 1977 B- and C-boddy cars were downsized into lighter, smaller, better-handling cars with little sacrifice in space or comfort.
It was done mostly by designing lighter components from frames to doors to panel stampings. Reflecting later, Estes felt that these designs were fairly easy to accomplish in terms of making them more efficient - they were lighter and smarter but not a break from tradition underneath even if they were described as “Radical.” In terms of presenting the cars to the customer, they were also meant to be evolutionary. One of the main goals, said Irv Rybicki, then in charge of Buick-Olds-Cadillac styling and successor to retiring Bill Mitchell that year, was “to maintain the personality” of each division. If the size was revolutionary, the style and layout were evolutionary. -
Even working within the confines Buick or Cadillac traditions, the ‘77s drew inspiration from what would seem like unlikely sources. Several themes from the 1977 B-bodies seem to have been drawn from Paolo Martin’s 1972 Fiat 130 coupé, and this was most evident on the 2-door Buick LeSabre and Pontiac Catalina. The four-door LeSabre was a more conservative affair and has historically gotten much less attention - as family cars usually do but also because the LeSabre coupe offered a rare turbocharged variant. Power came from Buick’s revived V6, Pontiac’s 301 V8, corporate or Buick 350 V8s, or in 1977 only, the Olds 403.
When the new big Buicks were introduced, they were 10” (25cm) shorter, 3” (7cm) narrower, and nearly 700 lbs. lighter than the outgoing ‘76s and many GM execs fretted over how customers would accept them. They needn’t have worried - full-size Buick sales rose nearly 40% in 1977 and remained robust into the 1979 OPEC crisis.
