    This has always confused me.

    Could someone explain to me the concept behind wood-paneling on cars? Here's one.

    And another, earlier example:

    And for that matter, a trend that still persists -- albeit barely -- to this day: the fake convertible tops?

    Here's a more modern vinyl top:

    I really don't get it.

    First, that's not real wood. That I never got. It was like contact paper for kitchen cabinets.

    Now these were, and still are, very cool:
