Customer Review

on September 24, 2004
Reading this books brought back memories of the sorry excuses for cars that we spent thousands of dollars for in the 1970's-80's.

Some of the Losers from that era that were in the book in my own words:

1980 Thunderbird: Styling done by stacking 3 "Chunky" candy bars together. An insult to the 2-seat T-birds (1955,2002)

1984 Fiero: A good looking, but less practical Chevette

1982:Cadillac Cimmarron: at $12,000 Cavalier. Worst example of badge engineering.

1982-1984 Dodge Rampage: A sad excuse for an El Camino, and even sadder excuse for a pickup.

1974-78: Mustang II; The "Pintang". A heavier and slower Pinto.

They should have put this horse in the glue factory.

1980-90 Cadillacs: Standard of how not to design a car. Much worse performance and reliability than a modern Dodge Neon (which costs half as much or 1/4 as much in 2004 dollars).

1981 K-cars: Johnson&Johnson band-aid cans on wheels.

1971-1977 Chevy Vega: Set the world standard for fastest car to fall apart. Had to buy gas and oil at the same time, like a 2-stroke.
