    There are some aspects of the car that don't totally suck. I like the overall look, for example. (I think deLorean ripped off Bricklin here.) And the interior's not bad - for 1975, especially.

    But it still has the overall feel of a homebuilt/kit car....

    It's the thick window frames that make it look like a kit.

    And it did have an AMC engine, right?

    Some had AMC-sourced 360 CID V-8s; others the Ford 351. Or that's my recollection....

    You would be correct.

    Here's a scary thought. Did you know that there was a song created in honor of the Bricklin? The singer is Charlie Russell, a member of the International Bricklin Club.



    Don't even ask how I know that.

    Impressive!

    I'd like a chance to drive one of these things; the looks have begun to grow on me... but I take that as a sign of becoming senile....

    Excellent - thank you!

    It's not quite the "Corvette Song" (George Jones) but then, what is? ;D
