THE YOUTUBE THREAD (to stop us having way too many topics)

Recommended Posts

I'd almost have a Yenko Corvair... just for the exhaust note.
I really like Corvairs. One of the very few times that GM really stepped out of their bubble and had a world-class car on their hands, then they screwed it all up with their cynical, typically American nickel-and-dime mentality.

The story goes that they were well aware of its dangerous handling tendencies but chose not to add a cheap additional link to the rear swingarms, which used to roll over into severe positive camber and flip the car over. The link was added at a later date but the damage was done, with the car being the central subject of Nader's book "Unsafe at Any Speed", its fate was sealed.

The car also had a fuel-powered heater... Yikes!

Ford had the Pinto, GM had the Corvair. Both are salient historical exercises in how not to execute a good idea.
