Curbside Classic Clue

by Paul Niedermeyer

Is it beginning to seem like we’re stuck in a 1971 time warp? Sorry, if that era is a bit painful for some of you. True confessions: I don’t like writing when it’s nice outside. And it’s glorious here in the summer. I wrote this six-car comparison back when it was still rainy and gray. So I’m “on vacation”, and you’re stuck in the early seventies for three more weeks. But for you dear CC readers, I offer this faint hope: If I’m inspired, or if writers start getting paid again (god forbid), I might increase the Curbside Classics once the weather turns crappy in the fall.How often would you like to see a fresh old moldy car?

Oh, and if you already know this week’s car from the results of the C/D test, please don’t spoil it for the others still hanging in deep suspense. Thanks!

    No way a Cricket finished third. My vote is for 510. (Though it’s hard to imagine a Vega was superior…strange days) Oh, the Vega wasn't superior, just a different hood line.......

    CC once a week please. How bout you even pick a day of the week for it? So the Best and Brightest can look forward to it like we do to "The Autobiography of BS."
