GM's effort to emulate VW in the small car market created both the Corvair and Ralph Nader's career. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Greenbrier may be unsafe at any speed but it's still pretty sweet looking just standing still.
An Impala was felled yesterday, and it didn't take a pride of lions to bring it down, all it took was NPOCP. That Chevy's one of a kind-ness did not engender much voter kindness, and the questionably licensable Impala SS singularity fell to a 78% Crack Pipe loss. That former GM Heritage Collection resident carried both too high a price and too much baggage to have been realistically considered a deal. Today's candidate, while still a member of the bow tie brigade, comes with a much lower price, as well as the ability to haul all that Impala's baggage, and then some.
