The Debonair was a realy ugly car.
But i have to admit the old Galant E30 Sedan and later the Galant EA0 could be appealing cars.

Yeah, looks like it's trying to be a 190 evo... garbage.

I'm not a jap hater, though. I love the old Datsun Z cars. Our little Honda has proved to be quite well designed, however utilitarian, I've heard good things about Toyota trucks and Mitsubishi's and Subarus are supposed to be rally-cross bosses. Can't speak for the last three myself, though.

1983 240D 3.0T 4-speed manual

W123/240D parts, 220D parts, 190D (Ponton) parts, W126 drivers door handle w/ key. Some parts are new.
