[DML] "cutting edge technology" & Bill

Invented in 1911 and gained recognitoin in the Mini, first produced in 
1959. Hardly "cutting edge by 1981, and I asked you to name a car 
considered cutting edge then, and still respected now.

No, we're saying the car was well engineered and cleverly designed, even 
if it did use off-the shelf parts. You are digressing into your own 
little arena, as usual.

Get a life, Bill.

"Plastic" is a property, not a material, but usually used when meaning 
"polymer". The car's structure is a combination of a steel chassis, a 
fibreglass composite body (NB NOT a member of the polymer family), and 
stainless steel skin. If it were a POS, why are such a large proportion 
of them still being reliably driven and enjoyed 28 years after they were 
built?
