Generic, bland, plastic, falls-apart-vehicle of some sort.  Yeah, so stylish and elegant, right?  LOL.

And people actually spent money on these? Perhaps not. I've never seen one before, thank goodness.

Did you happen to read the part where I say don't post the answer here????

 

It sort of ruins it for everyone else.  :rolleyes:

 

And BTW... it's Kia and Hyundai. Neither of which is even close to the right answer.

They really thought with that kind of build quality and shutlines that they could compete with a 1990 Range Rover? Interesting...

I think the bad fit of the bumper on this particular one was probably a result of a parking lot ding or something like that. Photos of others show a better fit.

My friend has one of these things, his parents bought it new. Price of this was $68,000 plus some change. It was a very nice truck when they purchased it back in 1990. even today with over 250,000 miles it still drives strong. These were originally only sold to the military and police departments before the company decided to sell to the public.
