A Denver neighbor had one and I thought they were very attractive and unique. Then, a few years later, one appeared in a salvage yard and I thought what a waste!

I think the later Bertone coupes were much better looking and you didn't have to lean the seat back as far for headroom. The six cylinders were junk, but I would love to have a Turbo four Bertone!!!!

It's let down a little by the clunky side molding and lack of "jewlery", (boat-trailer taillamps, etc.) but I admire the effort + great story.
