They made cars that were wonderful to drive, but ... they corroded if you mentioned the word "rain", were built out of "whatever was handy" on the day1, and had some "interesting" design ideas2

Fun while they lasted though.

1: To get a spare part for my HPE you had to take the old one with you as I found when I needed a new distributor cap. What was there, went on. If it wasn't there, something else did.
2: The heated air vents were right in front of the gear lever, with the result that it glowed in the dark in cold weather; to remove one of the spark plugs you had to dismantle the cooling system.
