Amazon ruled the world in 1965, and rules the world in 2005!


1992. Amazon wouldn't start anymore. Fixing took 11 years.

General Comments:

Due to the classical looks and the great performance, everyone looks at you.

In the Netherlands it's hardly affordable to drive this car.

Volvo stills pulls my attention, but thanks to financial problems Citroen is now becoming my car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I'm from the netherlands too, but I can't agree it's hardly affordable to drive an amazon over here.

I've driven one on a daily bases. my amazon isn't a very good example there I wasn't that good and already rusty when I bought it, but when I've had bought an better amazon I'm sure I would still be driving it today.

When you really had spend time on the car it wouldn't have taken 11 years to fix your problem.
