American Car Industry: The Malaise Era

Post by bbattle » October 16th 2021, 12:36pm

A really nice series devoted to the Malaise Era of the US auto industry. 1971- ????

Remember the Ford Granada? 72hp from 250 cubic inches (4Liter). A 1975 Datsun B210 with a 1.6L four cylinder got 96hp.

The darkest depths of a really sad time

The successes of the Malaise Era

The Aftermath - the landyacht returns as the SUV

The narrator is Dutch and has to deal with narrow roads, high gas prices, high taxes, etc. so he keeps asking why Americans keep buying giant vehicles. Besides the obvious reason; how else to transport our giant testicles.
