Today’s Thursday Twister subject is all about the show and no go. Find us the best car for looking at, but it is sorta terrible to drive. What car do you want in your garage, but not on the road?
My selection is the Subaru SVX, which promised speed with its Giorgetto Giugiaro design, all-wheel-drive, and flat-6 powerplant…but failed to deliver like a broken down UPS truck. The engine wasn’t very powerful, the chassis was dead ‘n’ heavy, and the only available transmission was a recalcitrant 4-speed slushbox. Here on eBay is a cheap example bidding for $510 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Waupaca, WI.
