What is this?


This car marked a big change in direction for the company that made it. My father owned a new one and to quote him, "the dealership spent more time repairing it (at my expense) than I did driving it."

Today a lot of these are rusting into oblivion and nice ones are a bit hard to come by. This one is sitting on top of a junkyard in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, Sicilia.

What is this car?
