I feel that these were really well engineered (I remember BMW getting all excited about fitting aluminium links to the 5-Series in 1997 or thereabouts), really good looking cars hobbled by mediocre engines. USA (and Australia) was still struggling with emissions tech in the 80s. You look at what happened once Lotus fitted quad cams or, even better, Reeves bolted a couple of turbos on, and those ones were superb.
