For 1960s tech it did OK.

To call the current car a "turd" given the current crop of choices isn't realistic. The safety mandates, crush zones, and market conditions dictate, to an extent, the size and weight of the vehicle to meet a price point. At least GM went to Holden to design an adequate suspension, Brembo for brakes, and Tremec for a tranny, Chevy's never had a problem building a pushrod V8.

We would all like a 2400lb, 450hp V8, RWD, two door for $20K, unfortunately you'll have to build your own in your shed.
