Reducing Driver Turnover
Reducing driver turnover or driver churn has been talked into the ground, but I want to share my thoughts on the subject. You’ll have to listen to the podcast for this one, but I can guarantee you that I have a unique view on the topic.
Eighty’s Two-Seater Sports Cars
The 60s and 70s brought us quite a few choices in imported 2-seater sports cars. Unlike the Corvette, these were mostly 4 cylinder, front engine cars with rear wheel drive.
The MGB and the MG Midget were quite popular. Triumph made the Spitfire, the TR4 and the 6 cylinder TR6. Fiat made the 124 and the rear engine 850 Spyder, Datsun even had an offering. There were too many others to count.
Being a total gearhead by my early teens, I was quite aware of these cars. I was sad to see their demise. What really killed these cars were the US safety and emissions regulations. No one wanted an MGB with a smogger motor and big plastic safety bumpers. The currency exchange rates also helped to pull these cars from the American market.
A rash of new cars came out in the 80s to fill the void, but it wasn’t the same. Here are some, but not all of the offerings. These are the topic of this segment.
- Triumph TR7
- Fiat X19
- Porsche 914
- Ford EXP and Mercury version, the bubble backed LN7
- Pontiac Fiero
- Toyota MR2
I’ve also been writing a few blog posts that aren’t tied to a podcast episode. Be sure to check out the Load Board Blog page to read the latest.Share This:
