Takes all sorts to like different things and not like other things. Then

there are journalists that view the way to success is to knock everything.

I didnbt see the article but Ibm assuming itbs another refresh over the

ancient article 10 worst cars ever made. Herebs the problem with these type

of articles they are generally written by 25-year-olds who are way too young

to have ever actually known the cars when they were new. They are only

rehashing someone elsebs story . Their pieces have no value.

No, it was a report on a car show for underappreciated autos. The entries were

generally positive. He didn'bt say much good about the TR7, but not much bad

either.

Ibve often wondered why someone hasnbt compile a list of the worst

automotive authors,  by applying the same level of rigor and research.   You

know the ones, who were either not of driving age when the car was sold new or

who has never owned one.  The ones who specialize in writing unbalanced

reviews without the benefit of a first hand test drive, or who apply modern

sensibilities to a 30 year old car, or worse yet simply regurgitate inaccurate

garbage previously written by their forbearersb&..
