 Isn't that a Fiat?  They look fun but the guy I bought my 914 from said he 
sat in one once...  Took two salesmen to pull him out of it!  He was 6'4" 
and said he could keep his hat on in the 914!  Used to see quite a few 
X-19's around.  I suspect most have been crushed like the Pinto's, Dashers,
etc.  :-(
