Uncool, and that is giving it the benefit of any doubt. But a good car for sure. I ditched my Alfa 33 for one of these (Carina E 1.6) many years ago. Six years and 38K when I bought it, I ran it for 5 years then gave it to my Dad who's Lancia Thema was rusting away - he ran it for another 8 years until his eyesight was giving up in old age. Only normal maintenance and a water pump in that time. Very boring but quite good.
You can fit a bathtub in the back. Discovered that after sawing old bathtub in half then discovering that it would have fitted anyway.
Got the 156 after the Carina, followed by two 159s.
