All vehicles have their position in the realm of things.
Different people like different things, and that is what makes most different.
I always wanted the Corvette since I was a little kid.
I LOVE AUDIS AND VOLKSWAGENS!
I also like Jeeps and Porsches!
I would not drive my "prized" sports car everyday like I would my Audi 4000s
and I drive only my Jeeps in bad Chicago winters! :-)
I do remember some of the comparison tests between an 85 Audi Fox and an 80's
Corvette. I might still have the articles.
Corvette was faster in the straight-a-way but the Fox was faster in the slalom
Major modification had to be done to the Corvette in order for it to "barely"
beat the stock Fox in the slalom course. And it only won by 1-2 miles per hour
after the major mods.
Reportedly the Corvette was re-engineered in the 90s and it became more of a
"winner" in the slalom.
They are all good and have their niche in the automotive world!! With proper
maintenance any vehicle could last!
I have owned Fiats, Datsuns (now Nissans), Camaros, Firebirds, Peugeots,
International Scouts, Kit-Cars, and I forget some of the rest. They were all
fun and all different. I find it hard to say that one was better than another
in EVERY aspect! And I have worked on almost all brands of vehicles.
Heck I even owned a Vega, and I believe that was considered the "Disposable
Car" (drive for 2-3 years and throw it away). lol
Again JMHO <g>
Happy Holidays to All!
Current Fleet and I enjoy driving any of them!

when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them, and you have their
shoes. Frieda Norris
