I think this dealer's finding every '70's Torino in SW Virginia.

The only one I've seen.It's actually in really good shape -
not a rust bucket.
Maybe it's spent a lot of time in the garage.

Don't forget it was made of Acrylic Resin (in New Brunswick) - connection to the Delorean. Pretty sure Malcolm Bricklin passed on the plans to Delorean. Bricklin also imported the Subaru 360 and the Yugo.

I would love a Bricklin (or a Manic GT) as a Canadian Made car.

The Manic GT, I've only heard about them, never seen one in the flesh, there probably aren't many survivors left, they probably only sold a few in the first place...

Anorak fact, while the Bricklin was made in Canada it wasn't sold here... :smile:

When I was a teenagers I would walk past one on the way to school - they had put an 'A' sticker after the i and before the c.

They show up occasionaly for sale - I actually saw the molds a few years ago and (hopefully) they ended up in the hands of the club.

JP - you wouldn't want a Bricklin. Enthusiast friend of mine had one. It leaked like a sieve every time it rained and had other problems.
True, I should stick with ragtop british cars. šŸ˜ they never leak.

I think some careful mods could make it a very cool car. BUt then I'm an idiot that way.
