Gather round kids, because I'm about to tell you a story.

There once was a lady singer named Tina Turner. Well, there still is a lady singer named Tina Turner, but there once was, too. Anyways, you get what I mean. Your parents are familiar with her. If you're familiar with her, consider yourself one of the lucky ones.

Tina Turner is generally known for being awesome and loud and for having great legs, and especially so the late 80's.

Plymouth was not.

The ad geniuses at Plymouth realized that if you put Ms. Turner next to a Plymouth Laser, however, and said that it's really great, just like Ms. Turner, you might be able to sell a few cars.

And a few cars is what they did sell, though not much more than that, as the Laser was only sold from 1989 to 1994.

The Laser wasn't all bad if you consider the top-of-the-line RS Turbo model, with its 195 hp engine you could even say it was quick. But with the base model having a hundred less horses than that and those awful plastic wheel covers, it couldn't really stand up right next to Tina Turner.

Oh, Tina Turner. What's love got to do with a Plymouth Laser?
