Honestly, I wouldn’t mind at all if General Motors decided to release an “anniversary” version of the 1953 design - with modern safety and updated features. The roadster design is one place where GM has been sorely lacking in the domestic market, and I think that it is a niche that would prove to be quite profitable for them.

Agreed. I still remember the first time I saw it rolling down Grand Ave. in Oakland, CA. The Ford T-Bird never had a chance. The 53 came with a 6 cyl engine. Enjoy what some enthusiasts did on their own: [Link:…]

Meh. If I were to spend real money on a sports car, I’d get a real one like this:

Have the teabaggers starting whining that it looks too “European”?

Nonetheless, I love it. It’s great to see GM keeping up with the times and borrowing influences from our Euro friends. Some Americans whine that the Big 3 need to borrow ideas from the West and East….well, they are doing so and yet people still complain/whine. Get over it.

I love the patriots that hate the american unions so much that they support British, German, Korean and Japanese unions. meh

Gotta agree. The Lotus is so light it does not have or need power steering.
