worst cars?

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

This, in the comments section is perfect:
Cletis Stanley • 2 days ago
The author of this article may have earned a spot on the "most arrogant and ignorant writer" of all time list.

You see, some of us have standards, others don't see it like that.

What a load of old nonsense! I've added a couple of comments to the list, but not under my real name, as I'm far too big a cowardy custard for that.

I find myself agreeing with GHT's agreement with Cletis Stanley, even though the name "Cletis" is perilously close to "Cletus" and we all know one of those...

Gotta agree with the above - there are some howling factual inaccuracies - apparently before the Stag, all Triumphs had V6 engines, the DeLorean was powered by a Peugeot engine, and apparently Yugoslavia was a Soviet Bloc country!! There are lots more...

Very American attitudes there (not surprisingly I suppose).

Oh, and he hasn't the faintest idea how to use an apostrophe either. :evil:
Some people are like Slinkies - they serve no useful purpose, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them downstairs.

Rich, I have absolutely no idea what you mean! :scared:

Rick, the DeLorean's engine is the PRV 90 degree V6 as found in Peugeot 604s, Renault 30s and Volvo 260 series cars among other things, so by describing it as a Peugeot engine, he's sort of one third correct, though I'd still quite like to slap the bloke around the chops with a rotten fish as he's undoubtedly a bit of a twit.
On that basis, he should receive this award for his journalistic competence: :moon: :moon: :moon: :moon: :moon:
