You know, I sometimes look down on GM (and the entire domestic industry for that matter) from the mid-'70s to the mid-'90s... then I remember, when they truly tried to move outside the box and do something innovative, they got disproportionately smacked down hard for the slightest failure to deliver a perfect vehicle...

I think the Corvair program was brilliant. I applaud GM for attempting it at the time... yes, they originally fucked up the rear suspension at first, but fixed that quickly... (but not quick enough for Mr. Nader)...

I still think that these facelifted cars are some of the most beautiful cars to wear the bowtie badge.

#2, Agreed, like I said, early rear suspension aside, GM pulled out all the stops on this program, and produced some fantastic vehicles.

#1, Really, taken overall, the Corvair was one of the best American cars of the '60s. Given the state of American cars in the '60s, that puts it in the running for one of the best cars ever made.
