Today on “Generation Gap,” the guys bring a pair of cars that fall firmly in the “cult classics” category. Davin’s choice, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible, has been called “unsafe at any speed.” The Corvair boasts a 2.7L, 2,683cc flat-6 engine behind the rear wheels. Matt’s pick, a 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE, has been known to catch fire at the most inopportune times. The Pontiac has the mid-engine 2.4L “Iron Duke” inline four. Matt and Davin discuss the incredibly passionate following for these classics, and try to figure out the magic behind their cult status.
