Surely the designs have to be quirky to appeal to a niche market, so at least they get some sales! One that springs to mind is the Nova - what a great idea!
I'm talking the kit car world. Most of the best selling kit cars over the last 30 years have been Cobra lookalikes and Lotus 7 inspired cars. They have been the mainstream kits for sure. More recently the re body craze has focused heavily on a certain Italian manufacturer ( with some stunning results I might add ). They have become popular and sell well because they are so good in the looks department.
I maintain that originality in the kit car scene has for the most part only generated quirky designs.
