    Saw an infamous POS car today... .

    Coming back from town, I came upon a long line of cars. Usually, in my rural county, this means a tractor is at the head of the line. Not this time! Instead, it was one of the bar-none biggest piece d' sheet cars ever to see the end of a production line: A Chevy Citation X-11! It was (once) white but now mostly spray can primer and rust - but you could still see the gaudy "X-11" decal on the door. It was crippling along at 37 mph in a 55 zone, a blue-black aura of smoke trailing its wake. I was amazed to see it actually ran at all, though.

    Does anyone remember this winner?

    I rented one of these for a month around 1982 when I moved to San Diego. Even as a new car, it was sadly disappointing.

    God, what an awful car.... GM should have been cited for that one.
