Now for something really creepy - none other than the Facel Vega...
I always liked them in the books but never actually saw one, ever. Has anybody? 10 grand will get you a wreck.
Oh, and here's one of the inside. Man, this only gets worse....
Just look at those switches.
I think I saw some car program where they showed up that machine, if I remember correctly (unlikely) there were not very many made, but car was quite fast for it's time and it had nice engine note.
Must say I love those switches, C-pillar and front facial are things that fail that car mostly, imo. I might go for that instead of new Ford
Ritmo Abarth, car that I once almost got, but I was scared off from it. Certainly rust ate them fast and there were lot of other quality issues, but it did have something in it's looks that was not too bad, 4 headlamp version that is, old 2 lamp version did look just sad, like begging to be put out of it's misery.
I wonder how russian cars would fit into this, Moskvitch 401 for example (pic is really big, so I put it as a link):
It was made late 50's and was somewhat popular here too, nobody seem to have those anymore and it was not quite the best quality, but later models like Elite which was very popular in here during 70's was quite poor quality, very easy to rust.
Lada was then of course one of the most popular cars here at early-mid 80's, but it has some following in here at least, also top gear tuned one at some point at your country.
Then politicians and big bosses drove at back seat of Volga, I think at some point there were some taxis of those kind here, but there were not very much market for them here.
Russian cars were not very good, but they were cheap and did their job enough well, but I think today very much forgotten.
Fiat cars had poor reputation here too, cheap, simple and fairly economic (at their time) machines with spartan interior, so many bought those too, some tuned versions visit track days still these days. Could use something like that these days
