Obama was describing his first driving experience when he said "(t)he car I learned to drive on was my grandfather's Ford Granada. ... It may be the worst car that Detroit ever built. This thing was a tin can. It was during the '70s when oil had just gone up, so they were trying to compete with the Japanese. They wanted to keep the cars big, so they made them out of tin foil. It would rattle and shake. You basically couldn't go over 80 (miles per hour) without the thing getting out of control."
So we know what Obama thinks. What do YOU think? What is the worst car that Detroit has ever rolled out? Let us know in the comments!
