  • Question of the Day: Which Car Has History Most Over Glorified?

    Yesterday we asked what car history has been unfair to. Today we ask just the opposite. We want to know what car history has been overly kind to.

    The VW Beetle. Now, before all you bug fans get in a asscheek-clenching facial tic inducing tizwaz, understand that I'm not saying the Beetle wasn't/isn't still iconic.

      the vw beetle is righteous, if you don't know why...get back to you counterbalanced combination of inline fours in a crazy theory (as per v8 hot rodding usual)

      the most overglorified is the porsche. it took the corvair type crank and mauled it into a crazy one...the 911 is not supposed to exist, the boxster fact, I don't even want to know how nerdy they got in years long intervals to make that work. it is still fragile and easy to make a complaint.

      I wanted to build my own porsche engine, the tiny air cooled 2.2, finding the carnk photo was a jaw dropper. some like the craziness. I don't for physics reasons.

      there is others. but porsche. that just makes me angry , as I am a seriously flat 4/6 fan.

        It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.
