I have NO idea what car this is, but E and I saw it walking around in Oak Park. I thought it was a Mazda at first (the front clip) but it turns out to be a Lancia 1800. We’ll see what I dig up later. It’s blocked in next to a guard shack and the plates expired a while ago. Still a looker.

[ Friday, 11/9: After some investigation turns out it’s a late-1970s Lancia Beta 1800, which is an offshoot of Fiat. They were only imported into the ‘States for a little bit then Fiat pulled out in the early 1980s altogether. ]
