in the USA, when a new car is introduced, we rent or leased it to try it out
pinto runabout- 1973- my dad rented this car in los angeles, it was americas first 4 inline econmy car, it was a rough car, engine hmmming....the interior is nice but the drivetrain and engine is a problem
monte carlo 74- New Jersey we leased this brand new 74 chevorlet monte carlo, it was a radical car then, its what they call a personal luxury car, its interior is red mohair, very luxuriuos inside.
In 1967 we used a convair, rented by mama odeng in picking us up in san francisco from los angeles, i never thought that was a revolutionary american car of the time , it becomes popular with the Book "unsafe at any speed" by ralp nader
