Cars that you forgot existed!

Recommended Posts

This one is a slight tangent on cars that you never knew existed, these are cars you were aware existed, but forgot all about them.

 

The trigger for this was spotting:

This, a Fiat Idea, resplendent in pogweasel pink. Completely forgot they were a thing.

 

Any more motors that escaped your memory?

lancia Chrysler upsilon, instantly forgetable

 

The entire Lancia Chrysler range from 2010+ was. The Delta was just there and I dont think anyone other than the odd mini-cab driver actually drove the second gen-300C!

The Suzuki Kizashi...

suzuki-kizashi-4.jpg?itok=y1No1wXd

3-series sized Suzuki saloon, only came with a 2.4 4-pot petrol with a CVT box...and cost £22,000! 140hp and AWD though. 

Apparently they managed to flog 335 of them in 2 years. (According to 'HML') 

 

Saw one the other week and honestly forgot they existed. Thinking that it was the equally as rare SX4 saloon! 

I totally would own one as well...

Loads of them, they just slowly disappear without you noticing , and when you see a pic or someone mentions one, the memories come flooding back. Not Rare ones but once was everyday ones, Wartburg Silver Knight , a standard in my childhood. DAF , Lada's (which had the heaviest steering in dah world) etc.....

Sao Penza. There used to be one around here, but it didn't seem to have any Penza friends. I know there have been a few threads on here mentioning them over the years, but can't remember the final verdict - are there any left in the wild?

Thought of another one I'd forgotten. Was looking at a Fiat Regata on Flickr and thinking it was a late one but couldn't remember what replaced it. Then it came to me: the Tempra. Haven't seen one of those for years so what happened to them?

There used to be a Vox Sintra where I used to live, the only one I ever knowingly saw. Think it had a 3-litre motor (?).

 

Also the Mazda 121 - the ugly Fiesta shape one, the same thing except for the badges.
