I'd smoosh 12 & 13 together since they are the same thing. Then add the 1978 Buick Turbo Regal/LeSabre (Just as significant as the Corvair and Jetfire).

They opened the door with the Shelby CSX, which was made by an aftermarket company, so I think not having the Callaway Sledgehammer is a big miss.

Looking at the article, do we agree that Ford’s warranty fix does effectively address the RS engine issue?

doubt it. they didn't redesign the short block, so this issue is going to happen again. this time out of warranty.

The Cobalt turbo SS was a rocket in its day. And killed everything on the NŁrburgring in the FWD category at the time

I wanna rip the SRT4, but back in its day it was quite the contender.

But going on some 15 years later now I can say that I've only seen maybe 1 on the road moving under its own power in like the last year.

I whole heartedly agree it should be on the list. Iíve owned 2 of them and they were a blast. Itís one of the best sounding 4 cylinder cars Iíve heard. Such a nice deep tone

Far as I'm concerned the GNX, TTA, and Omni GLHS should be at the top of that list. Cars that for the day were flat out insanely fast compared to everything else on the road.

I've never driven a GLHS, but I can guess at just how laggy and strong the turbo rush was.

I checked, my replacement engine has the Revision "C" gasket. So I think I'm going to be fine. I can't find anyone at all who had a Rev "C" gasket reporting a gasket failure.

Its just strange that its such a wide date range, almost 1.5 years worth of production. Which potentially covers up to 7500 cars globally.
