:-O  !!!  [Good memory, but to be unnecessarily pedantic, the turbo
Corvair was called a Spyder until 1965, when the new style body turbo
cars were called Corsas.]  Yeah.  The torsen wars got into the area of
marginal manners convolved with the opposing sides having experiences
with much different cars.  I'll need an ocean of the stuff [presumably
calomine lotion, although camomile might be tasty] to ever recover.
