I had one too. A yellow 1971 or '72 100LS if I can remember the year. I picked it up in Edmonton AB and left it at the airport for a couple of years (you could do that in the genav side in those days - free) to drive while I was in town. A fantastic - but quirky - car. Space, handling, comfort, reasonable performance and economy, but most (surprising) of all - dead reliable!
