The blue car behind the red Chevy looks like a Ford Falcon and also maybe 2 Lada's(?) blue and red. The white car looks kind of like a Geo Metro (Suzuki something?).

Well the Falcon has an odd grille, perhaps it's a Canadian Ford Frontenac c. 1960s. The white car is a Suzuki Swift, same car we knew as the Geo Metro.

Frontenac had a weird circular element in the center of the grille, kind of like a 49-50 Ford. I bet that's an Argentinean Falcon.

Geez that thing hurts my eyes...and I've always liked '79-85 Eldorados, too.

It is the four seater (well, 2+2) version of the Lotus Elan, described as the Elan+2.
The two seater was much prettier, especially when driven by Emma Peel in The Avengers. Rather worryingly, I have just realised that Dame Diana Rigg, the actress who portrayed Emma, is now 74. However she still drives a Mercedes Sports

The Elan nobody much wants. It's worth about 1/2 to 2/3rd of what the coupe is worth. Not as homely as the Jaguar E-Type 2+2 however.

Not an image, but a phrase or two:
"Panther Gait coil springs"
"The Car of the Century Floats on Fluid, Too!"
Different manufacturers, different eras, different suspension. Whose gentle ride were they referring to?
