I may have been spending too much time with CFlo, because I am starting to appreciate (and like) classic Volvos like the 122/122S/Amazon. The simple truth is that these funky little Swedish sedans are cheap to buy, drive, and maintain. What else can you ask for in a classic? Find this 1967 Volvo 122S Amazon offered for $4,000 in Escondido, CA via craigslist.
You won't be overwhelmed with V8 torque or an open air experience, but the Amazon combines a 118 horsepower inline-4 with a decently well built chassis that feels like a fast car from the 50s, even though it was built in the late 60s. Does that sound like your idea of fun?
