The Lancia Monte Carlo?  That's known stateside as the "Scorpion".  
Similar to the Monte Carlo in appearance, similar to the Yugo 
in performance. (We got the version with about 80bhp!)

The Stratos! Wow!  Can you believe they could barely give these
cars away new?  A guy I met at Summit Point Raceway (WV) was
actually driving one a couple of years ago.  More impressive in
reality than in legend!  Loud, Spartan, and Quick.  My kind of car!

Strange that the Stratos now has such incredible value and yet
UrQ's are worth less than used Civics.  Go figure.
