My very first car was a Lancia Beta Coupe, an odd choice for an American. I hadn't even heard of Lancia at the time (although I've come to appreciate it for what it is: ond of the greatest marques of all time), and was hoping to find a sub $2000 Porsche 924. Thank goodness this came along instead! It had a willing (if weedy) engine, sublime FWD handling, and great brakes. I thought it was so debonair for a high schooler earning a living as a truck washer and horse stall mucker.
