Wow! Many, many years ago (close to 35), I had a female friend whose father owned a CV8 (in Toronto. One of the very few in Canada). I got to drive that car on occasion, and it was a bear. Manual rack and pinion steering. Chrysler V8 (330 ci? I forget). Adjustable shocks. Fiberglas body. British Racing Green. Looked hideous. But a whale of a lot of fun to drive. You have no idea how much fun it was to pull up to a stoplight in 1970 in this thing, with it rumbling away, beside some V8 Pony car, and just blow the doors off the Chev/Ford/Chrysler/AMC/ muscle car. Never got a speeding ticket. Just lucky I guess.
