Saturn did the plastic right.

Had a 64 Vette and was frequently getting stress cracks taken out of the fiberglass body - about a once a year trip to the body shop as I recall. Hopefully, they have this licked by now.

Recently, my boss borrowed a 92 SL with 150K+ miles. Owner was a pure unadulterated swine, and the interior looked like the car had been used for years as a doghouse. With this kind of appearance care, the plastic panels still made the car look great and worthy of rehabilitation by a loving owner and an engine from Joey.

The gen 1 styling still seems current.

Saturn got the polymer stuff right IMHO.
