Why do cars flop?
Well, that is certainly something that is difficult to put a finger on. There are a few main reasons that you can first check, however.
Firstly, styling. If it's ugly, it is just not going to sell. And many cars have had that problem. Think of the Fiat Multipla. It's very ugly. Who wants to be seen in that? And looking back a couple of decades ago, no one wanted to drive an ugly car.
Secondly, reliability. Or should we say a lack thereof? A car has got to get you from A to B, a million times over. And hopefully, it doesn't break along the way. Auto flops through the history of time, if they are not ugly, are unreliable. Nobody, but nobody, wants a car that is at a mechanic more than it is on the driveway outside.
There are other factors, but certainly, those are the most important ... styling and reliability.
And onto our quiz. We have lined up a number of flops from the '70s and '80s for you to try and identify, all from just a few clues. Some are easy and others are fairly obscure, so you will have to take your time.
But, you got this!
