ets see. Ford Pinto, Chevy Chevette, Ford Mustang II, AMC Pacer, AMC Gremlin, Dodge Omni, several more I can`t recall,, and almost any new vehicle that looks like it`s a space ship instead of a car, which narrows it down to almost all of them. But honestly, I`d like to have a Gremlin, they were Ugly, but gotta love how they act when you stuff a 400 small block Chevy under the hood.
People badmouth the Pinto, but I bought a new one back in 1971 when I was in college... with the 4 speed and 2.0L engine it would smoke the tires and outrun most small and mid-size cars of the day. I drove the hell out of it for 120,000 miles in upstate NY until the rust, broken front coil springs and a worn cam got to more than I wanted to fix. I sold it to a guy that drove it back and forth to California at least twice before I lost track of it. The base price in '71 was $1919 and with the options, mine cost me $2100... it didn't owe me a thing.
