I think those drivers should have been driving AMC Pacers, that way they could control them!You could drive over the speed lmit but it took you a mile to get there and you didn't want to slow down cause you'd loose your steam that you had built up( I used to have one)
Same thing with the old Chrysler K cars. We had a pool car at work and it was the most gutless thing I ever drove. Parked it in the lower level of a parking garage once and it didn't have enough power to get up the ramp. Had to take a run at it.
