Wow, this brings back memories...almost bought one of these back in the day. With a stick, it was pretty good fun for a family sedan.

Why exactly would someone paint over that particular part of the trunk lid?

That's unusual, I'll have to agree.

great find, great sky, great compositions. i don't think we've ever had so many "non-flush headlights" on the front page.

Damn, another spambot.
Completely agree with Tony....and man, that is weird. Why was that part of the trunk painted over?

Why is this even in the mix? What an awful, awful car. lol

I love this car. It's so homely it makes a statement. As far as the green paint goes it's obviously an attempt at a rust repair. I've seen brush-painted hoods that looked worse (at least it's green right?). And seeing the rust coming through it was not a successful attempt. Kudos brothers Piff- you show real cars. Much better than 'reality' TV.

These are RWD, to boot. Definitely a rare sight nowadays.

I had once exactly the same one! I am now desperate to own one again.
