Exotic Dropouts
By Robert McLellan
 

Dream cars turned into reality at the whims of the rich or promoters backed by investors. Often driven by exotic designs and/or engineering, these efforts frequently have limited longevity. Maybe it was lack of funding, few rich buyers, unreliability, or simply a lack of knowledge and experience, but they failed to survive.

The Tucker is a popular example of a car that, presumably, should have been a big success. From a book ...to a movie ...it's saga is a classic example of what can go wrong.

The following is a review of many examples of exotic dropouts that are worth remembering and collecting.
