Note: None of them belonged to John Voigt (the dentist).
Turns out that collecting old Chrysler LeBarons is a thing, and this guy from Richmond, Virginia apparently has 22 of them up for sale. Ah yes, the old LeBaron, a symbol of what Chrysler wanted to become back in the early 1980s, not long after Lee Iacocca took the reins of the then troubled automaker. The LeBaron was built on the automaker’s then-new K-car front-wheel-drive platform, which, along with the minivan, helped saved Chrysler from bankruptcy at the time (history has tendency of repeating itself).

Anyway, the Chrysler LeBaron, sold as a coupe, sedan, wagon and convertible, was the right car for the time, and the Town & Country trim (before the minivan) added an extra dose of “premium.” It was made famous again in the 1990s when Seinfeld’s George Costanza bought a used LeBaron Town & Country convertible that previously belonged to actor Jon Voight. Turns out it was John Voight, the dentist. But back to this guy who’s "liquidating" his LeBaron collection. All convertibles, the LeBarons (some are Town & Country) are from models years 1983 through 1986, and range in price from $500 to $2,000.

The Craigslist seller also claims most are in running condition. You can even sing along with George while behind the wheel of your own LeBaron: "Everybody's talkin' at me...I can't hear a word they're sayin'... just drivin' around in Jon Voight's car..."
