ID my friend's car

I told him you guys would be all over it. He's a non-believer. Please don't let me down!

I think Amazon was the slang for the 122S. Or it was the Amazon in other markets. Something like that. The GT is the rare and desirable version.

It's a dowdy old turd, in less than optimal condition. Help your friend find a better car.

Looking at your friend it looks like him and the car are a good match.

He needs a new wardrobe, too.

You know, while you're in the middle of the intervention.

My daughter just her 3rd 122. It was on the TV show Wheelers Dealers.

Should be on next season coming up. Red one, both my daughters will be on when the new buyer shows up at the end.

He loves that car and let me drive it. I was really close to not fitting behind the wheel. I'm all good with him appreciating stuff that's different he's all good with everyone else being into their stuff too...even if their clothes don't meet his standards!

I had a 120 series wagon, then a 145.

Drove the 120 for 160k miles, the 145 for almost 200k miles.

Both would cruise all day on the highway at 85 mph.
