We all know the 1970’s offered lackluster cars, chocking emission regulations, and bumpers that rivaled guard rails in their size. It was also a time in which there were quite a number of Import Coupes catching on, and I discovered this little piece from the guys over at Car Lust. The author of the piece, Chris Hafner, details what he described as an all-but-forgotten-class of vehicles, that was actually the for-bearers of the light, performance based driving machines that were offered only a few years later. The Eclipse, The Prelude, and others should be thankful for these cars, and so should you. Read more about these cars at Car Lust. While your there, take a look at other Car Lust Face Off Challenges.
