Re: car-o-scope

The EXP was an Escort-based (american Escort) 2 seater "sports" car.  Had
a very different body and only a flat shelf behind the front seats with a
large, sort of notched hatchback lid.  There was a Mercury counterpart
which had a more traditionally shaped hatchback, but the shape was formed
by the glass.  Can't remember the name... LN7 maybe?  The best way I can
justify them would be to say they were toys for the designers and some
candy for the less well-funded car buyer.

These frog-like creatures graced our roads in the early eighties.
