I went to our local show and shine this morning and came across this 1974 Fascination powered by a Renault 4 cyl. The gentleman that owns this car told me there were only 5 of these made and he is owner of 3 of them. 3 of these were built in Sydney Nebraska, 1 was built in Lincoln Nebraska, and the other one was built in Northern Colorado. This thing has factory digital guages, cruise control, and can steer in a complete circle without leaving its own footprint. I was really attracted to this car, because we dont see something like this very often at our local car shows.2012-07-21_09-38-37_254.jpg2012-07-21_09-38-57_494_Kearney.jpg2012-07-21_10-13-42_646.jpg2012-07-21_09-40-44_775.jpg

I like it. I would most likely build a model of it were one available. Nice find.

Looks like the unhappy result of a union between an Alfa Romeo Giulia SS and Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion, with some random genetic mutations thrown in. It sure is........ different.

1974? Looks like some Virgil Exner nightmare from the '40's, but I'm strangely drawn to it. Kinda neat in a twisted way.

First of all, I love this thing! But it looks like a recipe for bankruptcy. Certainly looks like there are some aircraft parts in there.

That is over the top cool. New seat covers would be a must. Nah...just as it is will be fine

I had read that there is a V8 version built also. It didn't fare so well during the seventies "safety" craze.
