• SVX is the perfect choice. I was super excited when I got the chance to test drive a pretty good example near me, until I actually drove it. Vague and heavy and pretty cumbersome in turns. I would also like to submit the Volvo P1800. Looks like James Bond but drives like James May. But it's so achingly pretty that I couldn't help but buy one anyway.

  • funny you should ask – i had a dream the other night about being offered one of these in great original condition – cash out – then someone reminded me there would be no seat belts, no power, no cornering, and really no safety features of any kind – did i go for it or bail? – dunno, i woke up

  • When the Pontiac Fiero debuted,I was very eager to give it a shot. Great concept, but that horrible 4 banger sucked all the joy out of it.

  • Vw Karmann Ghia. Looks like a vintage Porsche but drives like a, well, a vintage Porsche. On the opposite end of the spectrum you have the Renault R5 Turbo. Looks like hell but drives like the devil is chasing it.

  • 71 Dodge Monaco with faded Mt prospect black and white paint job, no hub caps, and no cigarette lighter.

    MGA, Austin Healey 3000, XK120 etc etc. I get the impression that these cars are not as nice as modern fare.

  • 47 years later–overrated performance, handling and driveability with the heavy rear-end "anchor". Very overpriced. The pretty Porsche 911T.
