Our CC on the Laforza here
A Rayton-Fissore Magnum by any other name. The story of the importer was pretty intriguing.
Intriguing stories are in demand these days, at least between my chair and keyboard. Got a link?
Three broken laforzas, Moran driving school, some razor wire, and a dentist.
I think I’d avoid that dentist. Unless I had been shot in some clandestine operation. Looks like the perfect setting for that kind of schenaningans.
Are we sure this isn’t a screen grab of a deleted scene from “Better Call Saul”…?
Good one! It’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen a LaForza here in the US. Enough of an oddity that I remember being surprised to see a few in Police livery in Italy about 20 years ago. The only advantage over a Land Rover or Cherokee would be country of origin.
Based on the area codes on the sign it’s probably East L.A. Makes sense to find Laforzas there… They were sold (according to Wikipedia) from 1989-2003, a remarkably long run for a boutique vehicle. And during this period plenty of Los Angelenos were eager to show the world just how foolishly they could spend their gobs of money.
I’ll let this speak for itself.
Ok I generally lurk but now I need to post. Saw this behind a decrepit mill in Winchendon MA. Also saw a 80s BROWN RWD MANUAL WAGON (Volvo 245) but it was not a diesel so PFFFFTTT
There was a red one parked a few miles from me in the lot of a long-closed gas station. I wanted to take a pix of it for so long – and then suddenly it was gone a few months ago.
These look like the generic, Photoshopped cars you see on the label for a bottle of antifreeze or something.
When I was a kid a friend mine’s dad had one of these, and despite being quite astute at car identification, their Italian SUV had me stumped. It was likely the only one in my hometown (of Boulder, CO).
It looks like the set for a movie. Quentin Tarantino or may the Coen brothers.
