I’m not sure if we’ve ever featured a car before where the seller doesn’t mention the make or model of the vehicle, but I can say for certain this is the first time we’ve featured a car with a tow hitch on the front. You could assume that an owner towed this car behind a motorhome, but you’d expect some kind of yoke attachment that goes to a trailer hitch instead of a proud hitchball, but you won’t have to worry about other people dinging your front bumper while they are parallel parking. But the oddest part of this listing is the fact that the seller doesn’t once use the name LaForza in his/her advertisement, despite the fact that this is what it is. Find this 1989 LaForza offered for $2,500 in Burlington, VT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
