    Another Top 10 Worst cars list/video

    I don't tend to post video's here that aren't my own but, I happened to run across this today and thought I'd share it.

    (Spoiler alert, our Beloved DeLorean is rated number 5).

    The comments for and against, the DeLorean are an Interesting read...

    Don't care what some group of fat ass bloggers taking blood pressure meds at 25 years old thinks of my ride.

    .....or any group for that matter. Most of these groups that put together best and worst car lists for youtube hits can't even change their blinker fluid.

    I had owned the 1961 Corvair Monza 900 about 15 years ago. A really crappy car. The exact model and style shown in the beginning of the video. My trailing arm bolt snapped. Only way to repair it was from the backseat by cutting a hole into the body pan metal where the wheel well was at. The car fish tailed on turns. Syncing the dual carbs were a b1tch. Stupit car I don't miss you! I'd love to have that Ev1 though... i did hear there's a conspiracy to intercept them and remove them from public hands.

    Have you seen the Chris Fix "How To" video for blinker fluid? It's worth a watch!

    What kind of blinker fluid does the Delorean use? I can't seem to find any on their store.

    I love how they often bring up 0-60 as so terrible when it takes other cars on the list double or triple the time.

    Had to research it but I knew it was nearly as bad. the Corvettes of the same year had a 8.1sec 0-60mph vs the Delorean's 8.8sec.

    Idiots regurgitate any and all information. That's why we have had the same comments for 35 years. Actually, the original road and track test article is quite positive, but other other sources which were negative are the only ones whose information is carried over year to year by those not willing to update their 35 year old information.

    They talked more about John's flaws than his car's...

    And we wonder WHY there so many misinformed people around and about.

    Crappy or not, Ford sold 3.1 million Pintos over the car's 10 year production run (3,150,000).

    To put that into perspective, that's 35,000% more than DMC-12's.

    A lot of people that throw off on DeLoreans couldn't afford to fill the gas tank on one. Just let them live in their own little pissed off world and we will keep driving them and bringing smiles to all the faces that see them.
