• I drove one of these cars as a teenager. At that age neutral drops while cornering at high speed seemed an intelligent use of one's time. As did driving at 70mph then pulling on the parking brake to see how long a skid I could make (one city block). The top of the fenders would rust out and there was a device called a ballast resistor that would burn out and prevent starting. ($20 part), other than that, dead reliable. Enough room for 6 passengers, enough power for 4 passengers and…. vinyl roof.

  • A landau roof is something even weirder – where the back half of the roof is vinyl and the front half is metal. I've sometimes had the urge to get something with a landau roof and use a Sawzall and welder to make the landau part into a removable hardtop.

  • My parents bought one of these brand new, but it was yellow and had a V8. Biggest POS ever. I thought they called it a lemon because of the color.
