  • This very interesting thread made me want to add my twopenny's worth.

    I had a '65 Corvair convertible that (to me) was absolutely beautiful and FUN to drive.

    Back when the Esel came out, a GM designer was heard to say -

    "For years we've been designing cars with the long, lean phallic look. Now along come this Edsel with a grill that looks like a ..."

                Looks like it hit hard enough to move the steering wheel to the other side!

                  • Bob, speaking of Audis, we know they got a deservedly bad reputation for reliability and quality control issues, but they like other lemons, could be fine cars once you got the issues sorted out.

                    I've seen Audi 5000s with the differential gears piled up, apparently a sufficiently common problem that used ones were simply unavailable.

                    But an Audi, even a cheap one like an Audi Fox, is simply a GREAT car to drive, when it works. They really are a driver's car. I helped a friend maintain an Audi Fox wagon for several years, and it was a blast to drive. Even though it shares its engine with the VW Rabbit, the two cars are totally unlike in they way they drive.

                    Audi really missed the boat, IMHO. If they had fixed the reliability and QC issues in the Fox line, they could have blown Honda and Toyota outof the water.

                      • Hallo Gord,

                        Very few things can blow a Toyota out of the water.
                        On our continent the Hilux and Land Cruiser are
                        the benchmark for all other vehicles.

                        Regards,
                        Peet

                          • Just shows you that people do read the forums. and what is written never goes away.
                            Personally, I'd rather see an old thread revisited than see the same thread re-re-re-started for the umpteenth time.
