Leones are so pretty! What got you interested in them now? I guess is the comparison with BMW and Alfa... I wonder if these kind of commercials ever worked? Like those comparing the Ford Granada with the Mercedes.

You can add see the way this car was promoted in Japan was quite different...

@Ripituc: I really liked the 3 door hatchback as a kid. I think I still have a drawing of one I made.

Did you see my Twitter feed? I found a Leone convertible! And a pristine hatchback?

I see them now. That convertible is an interesting find. The absence of local offerings in the US market surely produced many strange convertibles from specialized coachbuilders.

Here is another Subaru:
