    Cheap and awful? They were more reliable than the European counterparts and cheaper to maintain.

    My Pontiac Firebird has more room than most British lounges, and it's a sports model.

    Comfortable ride, quiet, and plenty of headroom. However, the gas crisis was not as bad as you think. Gas was still cheap and the cost of living low. These cars are definitely not practical today. The coke can in the door is an urban legend that was past around in the 1980's to trash Union labor.

    Don't take an American mobile coke can near any salt or it will disappear 😁

    I like this iteration of Lincoln Town Car. It looks unmistakably American. After global geopolitics shift in 2001, American cars gradually became globally generic. They only true remnants of American motor industry are Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and Peterbilt trucks, and some pickup trucks. That's it. Everything else is styled for China market.

    70's cars did suck

    Maybe if you found one with less that 200k on it and with good shocks and rebuilt brakes? I had a Mercury Grand Marquise about that same year and it was a great road car. Very comfortable and the mileage wasn't terrible. And if I hit your Mini Cooper I can virtually promise you that you won't be the one walking away.

    Hearing a Southern impression on top of a British accent is unsettling

    I love my 79 Cutlass Supreme Brougham. Clarkson just has no appreciation for the…… Whatever it is that old American cars have.

    Awful but still awesome

  • And… I can say as an American, our cars from the 80's sucked as well.

    That’s a beautiful car 😍😍😍

    And regular European cars, that most of the people could afford, were absolute shit as well in those days.

    Id prolly agree 10 years ago but now they've aged quite nicely. Every vehicle having to be race track tuned is starting to get redundant

    My father had a thing for big 70's boats, I took my drivers test in a 77 Malibu Wagon, the great thing was you weren't all sitting on top of each other, and you didn't need a truck for everything, between that Malibu and 78 Mercury Marquis we hauled a lot of stuff and towed an 18 foot boat no problem.

    I've driven many cars over the years, big and small, but one of the best was a 1986 Ford Crown Victoria. There was no better car for cruising down the interstate than that Crown Vic. I put 185,000 miles on that car and it still ran very well when I sold it.

    Reason why it bounces is either the shocks are totally shot or missing altogether.
    And I figure your car of choice is either a honda fit of maybe one of those stupid looking souls.

    I can't remember any Mfg.'s cars being good, especially British cars. Even RR had problems, Jag, Toyota, Honda and Datsun (Niissan) they were all a piece of shit.

    I actually like the lines of those old cars. It was the build quality and mechanical issues that make me cringe at them.
