1979 Lancia Beta Review
Can't Do Much Beta — The Lancia offers, even 30 years later, an amazing combination of crisp styling, brisk handling, and economy. Parts are available online, and it runs like a champ. It is delicate, and I avoid wet weather, but I love cruising around in this delightful car.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Style, handling, comfort
Cons: delicate build quality, lack of dealers.
