With politics heating up in the US of A, I was reworking my joke about Ralph Nader promising to bring back the Corvair if elected. But apparently, he’s not running for president this time. In any event, I came across an article about Nader and the Corvair that sheds a new light on his book, the car, and automotive safety. Perhaps he wasn’t such a bad guy afterall.
In the words of Volvo’s founding fathers, “Cars are driven by people. Therefore the guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo is – and must remain – safety.” I get that … but couldn’t somebody bring back the Corvair anyway?
