The Corvair is a great car for the record, and I hope future resale values reflect this. That car was no more dangerous than the small SUV's driven at speed today with much more sophisticated tires, suspensions and safety equipment.
Mosler Consulier GTP? It happens to be one of my favorite cars ever; before the single element fixed windshield design. What's wrong with building a car that works? It's a race car made by a private entrepreneur, is the 6 wheeled Tyrrell p34 going to be decried for it's idiosyncrasies too? You might as well throw all automotive progress into the fire and burn Chaparrals at the stake too.
The Mondial cheap Ferrari misnomer is due purely to the automotive press, and uneducated "enthusiasts" who have probably never even touched the car. Today's Mondial collectors market is enough evidence.
[Warren Mosler] when Carroll Shelby rode with me, and I said, 'Carroll, some people think my car's odd-looking, and I wonder if it's hurting sales.' And Shelby replied: 'Boy, read your history. When the Cobra first come out, people said: "Shelby, that car is some kinda ugly, but it works okay as a racer." Now they tell me it's gorgeous.'"
I think especially with the new MT900 the future of Mosler looks pretty bright now, no?
