Oh, no. No. no. no.
The Derby was the bane of car renters' lives in the late 1970s in Germany:
"I'm sorry, sir - we're fresh out of anything you'd consider even
slightly acceptable. But we _do_ have a number of Derbys."
Aaaaaaargh! Like a Polo with no shock absorbers. I think it was actually the
"Stufenheck" version of one of the hatchbacks.
