You are forgetting the V8 Pacer, a late-life cobble-up that couldn't save the
patient. Of course some may quibble that the AMC V8 doesn't fall into the
"decent engine" category.
As to Honda copying the Pacer, I have a higher regard for them than that.
And I am having trouble figuring out just what they might have copied.
Finally, here's the mandatory TR content: After I separated my wife from her
Pacer, then waited an acceptable period for her to mourn, I brought joy to her
life with a 2500M TVR. At least that's how I saw it.
