In the rearview mirror: 1960-1969 Chevy Corvair

Here's an irony of automotive history: Ralph Nader never actually drove a Corvair - the car he claimed was as "unsafe at any speed." Too bad for him - and, of course,...

AMC Ambassador, 1965-1974

American Motors Corporation may have descended from Hudson and Nash—brands whose hallmarks were modesty and efficiency—but by the mid 1960s, AMC began producing battlewagons of truly Bismarckian proportions. One of the most...

Chevy Laguna, 1973-1976

Here is the MR2 that Toyota built for rally racing. Even for a race car this is one of the wildest looking cars Toyota has ever built. The interior looks like...
