Not a cult classic because Vegas were crap.  The Cosworth engine was pretty good until they detuned it so much.

Had a new 72.  Loved how it drove, but it was rusting the day I brought it.  Dealer had to fix it before I took it.  Had I known just what a rustbucket that thing would turn out to be I would have passed on it. 

Had to do engine rebuild at 50K miles due to no cylinder liners on an aluminum engine.  Totally rusted away.  Basically junk.
