lancia_gamma_coupe_2 A good friend, Joe, sometimes whips out his camera when he’s out and about. This results in excellent car sightings that apparently are exactly to my taste, and I have to say he’s one hundred percent correct.

The 2000 badge in the back notes the car has the carbureted two-litre flat four. lancia_gamma_coupe_1 lancia_gamma_coupe_3 The Gamma’s design is in fact so restrained, that only the convex rear deck and the side swages are there to lighten the mood.
