Thanks. That car is just begging for a resto-mod build.
My life right there.
Extra clean examples of lots of cool and not so cool cars.
For those of you who didn’t have the privilege of driving mid-70’s Detroit sedans ... they were cheap rattletraps built like absolute shit. Then one day, after everyone snapped that Toyota was killing build quality and, oh by the way, was gaining big chunks of market share, Detroit decided that the new key to sales was quality - hence one of the first marketing campaigns out of Detroit dedicated to quality: “At Ford, Quality is Job 1”
30 years later, despite the misc build quality issues we all gripe about, cars are still 5 times better built than back then.
Safety had the same story - from Lee Iacocca and HF II meeting secretly in 1971 with Pres. Nixon to persuade him not to force Detroit to put airbags in all cars, to Iacocca himself, 10 years later in a Chrysler tv commercial, touting the virtues of airbags in minivans.
Pursuit of profits can be a bitch and a blessing for the consumer, and make for repetitive and predictable history.
(For anyone who might be interested, one of the best examples was the exploding Ford Pinto gas tank, and the infamous “Pinto Memo.”)
It's really amazing to see the differences between generations now. There are so many monumental gaps between back to back generations nowadays. The internet alone was a massive change that a lot of people today don't know what life was like without it.
