And that 2 speed rear planetary of the 40s-50s,curtis73 said:True, but in that context, EFI was around for about 15 years before it "caught on". Caddy, BMW, Jag, and some Japanese companies had EFI examples as early as 1974 and it was dismissed as complicated and that it wouldn't ever catch on.
and that overdrive transmission thingy of the 50s-60s that died out... called worthless because they "lugged" the engine.
Not to mention that 8-6-4 Caddy idea that resurfaced last year....... oh I did mention it. :spank:
