Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. I agree with Chris. All four were built outside of the US for the US market. BTW. The yellow Capri shown is a 1974 Capri not a 1976 model. This particular 74′ comes with a 2.8L V6 engine. I was hoping the yellow capri would be for sale…. or is it!

  2. I had a brand new 1973 green 3 speed Capri which I loved! It was built thank god in Germany not England or Mexico! Never had one minutes problem, only wished I had gotten the 2.8 L 6 instead of the 4, That was my second car after I had been given as my 1st car a wonderful 1962 white bug convertible with a black manual top from my uncle! That VW bug was another great car!! Would go through anything! The wipers , and the Defroster & heater left a lot to be desired! But when you’re young a rag will suffice to clear the windshield!

  3. Oh, Diego, not a Pontiac. A Aussie made Holden Monaro Bob Lutzed into a GTO. Gots a ’04 40th Anniversary model in TorRed- go buy parts, you’ll see it’s not a Pontiac🤣

  4. I also had Capri’s in the late 70’s…red 4cyl auto, and then a dark green, vinyl top, 4 speed V6…..awesome cars! A few of my friends had them too.

  5. Answer: All of these cars are foreign and given American identities, as the Challenger, Capri, GTO, and Lancer were once American models.

    I’ll admit the Lancer is not as fine example as the others, as the others are captive imports, but I was not able to find a fourth within our ecosystem. Looked for many including Laser and Monaco!
