Could you have found a more beat up example?

I don't think it was particularly cool in its day, and it has aged terribly, so it's very uncool now.

A rare one, but not the coolest.
SVX was sleeker.

I like these cars. I'd have a flat 6 with the digital dashboard and height-adjustable suspension, and every day would be the 1980s future, with popup headlights and wedge styling and controls that look like those of a jet fighter.. or a video game.. or a video game of a jet fighter.

But alas, they're uncool.

I'm totally torn on this one, chaps.

Its looks are likeably edgy, but sooo dated now. It looks (with a pinch of salt) like a small 164 coupe (check out the rear strip light).

It never did well in road tests/reviews when new.

I don't think it is cool, but, I reckon, five years from now, an unmolested minter version will be.

Not cool. But - oddly - I still really like it

G, it's totally OK to like it. There are classes and self help groups but the main thing is "it is perfectly alright to like it".





But it's still uncool and a schiite design.

To be honest there's lots of stuff I like that I know is utterly naff or uncool.







Thankfully this isn't one of them!

Nope, still looks crap this morning. Like an 80s vision of a future that thankfully never happened.
