Re: [DML] Ethical Sports Cars...

Little known fact,that JZD had his hands in the rotary engine while at 
GM,it was being developed(GM's version) to be put into the Chevy Vega
(JZD's second car,the GTO was the first)but then was discarded when the 
oil enbargo came about,in favor of the crappy aluminum 4 banger,which 
then gave the Chevy Vega a bad reputation.
