  •  The Chevy Vega was going to be the low-cost, (3+ / 0-)

    compact GM product that would capture the youth market and save the USA and GM shareholders from more VWs.  Keep in mind that the only prior GM product that was somewhat "compact" was the Corvair, which Ralph Nader deemed unsafe at any speed.

    Sadly, the Vega was a piece of crap.  Followed by the Nova.  Both nails in GM's coffin.  It didn't recover for thirty years, BO's finest hour, IMO.
