OWNER: Jim Sykes, Seattle
OCCUPATION: Legal assistant
CAR'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1970 NSU Ro 80
"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... it is so unusual, rare and aerodynamically perfect. The most difficult thing about this car is explaining to people what it is. My NSU was made in Neckarsulm, Germany, June 10, 1969, and sold in Seattle as a 1970 model."
