The most dangerous car ever made by GM.

I've borrowed a friend's Corvair on a Sunday afternoon to go pick up someone. I'm riding along on a four-lane road and it begins to sprinkle rain. I'm going around 40 MPH, and a stop light up ahead turns red. I gently put on the brakes, and -– I swear to God -- I'm immediately going in the opposite direction.

Luckily, I turned exactly 180 degrees and there was not a lot of traffic. I just acted as if I had changed my mind about my destination, but it scared the bejeesus out of me.

I was interested to learn from Pingouin's discourse that this was the car which killed Ernie Kovacs. What a shame. I bet it was sprinkling rain the day he died.
