    I contest that the Corvair wasn't an inherent shitbox of a car. Some overzealous GM marketing and inadequate tire design resulted in a bad rap. And I still voted for Ralph.
    Drive the VW within its means and you'll be OK. Things get spookily quite around 80mph.
    My shitbox....A '72 BMW Bavaria. That particular car was a piece of shit, mad with gremlins and tiny be-forked devils. Fix one thing, the local deity gets shitty and moves to the other end of the car. I drove it for its Old World Charm. Sold it for $400 a long time ago in Warm Springs, OR.

    many think "wags" are shit boxes. my wife of almost twelve years figured i had to be o.k. when i dared to show up for our first date driving a "crapice classic". i really miss that shit box...it was slow, drank copious quantities of fuel, and floated down the road like no other car i've had since.
