It was a heavy, slow, POS. The builder lived here in the Phoenix area... they even had a couple on the Scottsdale PD for a while... a very little while...

Seems like it would be like a Pantera but with a Windsor instead of a Cleveland. Probably choked to death with emissions stuff then.

I think many testosterone driven business men in movies / television are modeled after Malcom Bricklin.
Responsible for the first Subarus sold in the US, too. ( A much better idea than this SV-1 )

He was also involved in Fiat and Yugo, and quite a few other odd things. Guy is probably maddening to work with! :)
