    The Eldonado were quite attractive for their time.

    Cornering hard in one was, of course, a prayer to the Gods of Tire Engineering. But then as you noted that's true of most of the spot-welded pachyderms of the day, it was after all GM that came up with front suspension geometry that actually induced POSITIVE camber change with body roll, ostensibly to improve straight-line stability, but at the cost of creating 4700lb of steel that could not turn at speed.
