Let’s start today off with a nice helping of something not so great, like a bowl of very off-brand Cap’n Crunch that comes in a bag and is called something like Nautical Fruit Scrapies. In this case, it’s a 1994 Opel Kadett GL, which we essentially got here in America as the early ’90s Pontiac LeMans, which itself was a Daewoo Racer, a car I once noted for having the saddest badging in automotive history, because Daewoo’s badge was made the same external shape as the Pontiac badge they knew it would be re-badged to, and couldn’t be bothered making a new front fascia that fit their own badge. Its’s just kinda sad.
What I do like about this Opel brochure is that it’s really helpful when it comes to explaining what the viewer is looking at. Specifically, I mean this:
So, this picture of those mouse-fur-colored seats surrounded by windows is the interior of the car? Shit, thanks for clearing that up, fellas! Another mystery solved!
Also, is that rear seat a 90/10 split? Is that what I’m seeing there?
UPDATE: Oops. I called the Pontiac version a Grand Am when I should have put LeMans. Forgive me. In case you don’t think an apology is penance enough, know I made some people quite cross about it online:
I like the “never, EVER” part. This is the kind of passion we need! But I stand by the dunking, proofread or not, Jerry. Also, David, who sent me this screenshot, needs to charge his phone.
