Maybe I would like the look more if it had bolt-on fenders or something else that was a better nod to its lineage.

Any more pictures of these little etceterinis (or H-mods!) from the Hide-Out heroes would be greatly appreciated.

In the mean time, here's a picture of the Stanguellini worksop in-period.

The Fuselage bodies are exemplars of clean, unadorned design. Proof that he had good designs in him, which makes the mid-late sixties B-Bodies that much more egregious.

The RS2 had a pretty-short rear as well though, no?

Let's see: we have (seats up/down?) 13-45 cu.ft (365-1,280 L) in the Subie and 13-23 cu.ft (370-650 L) in the Audi. The Audi is about 3" longer...

The Coronet, and especially the Plymouth Belvedere/Satellite, from about 1966-1969 are some of the laziest and worst looking cars (SUVs inhabit their own vulgar niche) that this country has produced....

I can't say it does much for me; it's pretty vulgar. Not to say that I'm disappointed that it exists: I do love 1000SEL's collection, but I think it's quite ugly.

To henk's point, is the second-hand market in (Western) Europe strong, or do the laws (and perhaps culture) favor new goods?
