A European friend of ours had one of these as a teenager on the French Riviera. And in his inimitable style, he painted a Flying Tigers-style shark's mouth on the front frenders to ward off any encroaching Nissan Micras. He eventually cracked the thing up in a wreck with an old lady, but to this day he still raves about the car's handling. We dig the one pictured here. More cars need to rock the flat-black hood and '70s-style Cibie driving lights. That look's coming back, mark our words.
