Please identify this bitchin' car from the 70s

Can you identify this exotic car I saw a month ago on the highway, heading towards Stratford, Ontario? It 70s vintage, low and boxy, sort of like a Delorean or a Lamborghini with gullwing doors. Painted flat black with electric orange trim. I think it had a name like Brookline or Brooklyn.

I vaguely remember seeing one in a magazine when I was a kid in the 70s and I remember the paint job being one of it's distinguishing features. I've thrown this description at Google in different combinations but nothing is sticking.

From Wikipedia "The Bricklin was featured in the September, 1974 issue of Playboy Magazine"

I now remember that I was a huge fan of Playboy around the age of 11.

I just linked to one in the second comment of yesterday's Delorean thread.

(I'm having a bit of a laugh at the idea of something built in Saint John, NB being "exotic.")
