After seeing my first Chevy Corvair, I became a fan of rear-engine vehicles. There’s just something “different” about having the engine in the rear of your car. Today, I found out that Mercedes-Benz was doing this long before Chevy. Mercedes-Benz actually produced several rear-engined production vehicles. You can read about them on page 18 of the July/August 2010 edition of THE STAR. They were the 1934 Type 130, 1935 Type 150, and 1936 Type 170H. Apparently, they were taken out of storage for a recent press event in Irvine, California.
Seeing those cars made me wonder if other brands have done the same. Can you think of any besides Volkswagen?
