Last week I mentioned a car was produced for 23 years and was a very successful undertaking. Unfortunately the development costs were so high it bankrupted the manufacturer and sent him to an early grave. Cars bearing his name are still sold today. What was the car? I wanted the model, not just the marque. It was the Citroen Traction Avant series.
So to this week. A car was penned in the US by a famous designer, but ended up being moved to Canada. It is 53 years old, but you can still buy a new one. The car held many records from Bonneville, including a 170 mph pass. Who was the designer, as well as what is the car?
