I actually like the styling of them. Pretty reliable I think with the Ford 351 Cleveland in them. I understand there were some fit and finish issues, with many owners reporting poor seals around the gullwing doors for example, but aesthetically I like them.
(Checked out your Wyoming spot. Nice)

Very nice find and shot! I was lucky enough to see one of these in WYOMING last year, was not expecting at all. These are neat little cars, what do you think of them?

Haven't seen one of these in years!! A friend had one back when new and I remember him leaving the bar in pouring rain with the doors stuck open!!! His trapped him once also and had to crawl out of the deck. He didn't keep the car long after the rainstorm!!! Last ones I saw were sitting out back repair shops for several years and looked rather forlorn!!!

MrSLCCII, That could be true. This is still, I believe, the only mass-produced car with power gullwing doors, but the downside would be they obviously wouldn't operate with a dead battery.
