My votes go to.....
1. Anything with a Vauxhall badge.
2. Anything with a Ford Badge (with a few exceptions- GT40 and MK 1,2 RS Escorts.
3. Anything built east of Turkey- all that Japanese and Korean garbage.

Oh and 99% of stuff built after 1975- its all bland and samey samey play it safe rubbish.
In my humble opinion anyway ;-)

Not really- the Vauxhall won some glorified club races back in the 70's due to the extraordinary talent that drove it and the guys that tuned it- the standard product was rubbish (I know, I have had a coupe and a sporthatch)
The second item in your defence is a rusty bad handling chav mobile based on a reps car with a bodyshell that flexed that much we had to fix plates around the screen to stop them falling out- a car which ain't half the car the Delta Integrale is. And the third one is a skip.
See?

1961 Corvair. BAD BAD BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 200 lbs of bricks in the trunk would keep the rear end from spinning out. Doors flung open at wrost times. Fan belt breaking every 5000 miles.
