Volvo P120 The Amazon — Built as 1957-1970 models the Amazon is imho one of the best built cars of the 60's. Designed for a V8 but ended up with the small 60hp 444 engine it still had nice enough qualities to compete with more expensive cars. With the 75hp B18 (1961) it was no rocket but the same engine with modified head/carbs could give the weight/hp ratio of many muscle cars of that era - with a competitive mpg as well. The 115hp 123GT in 1967 never became a success since the design even by Volvostandards was outdated. With 1969 models the GT was dropped and the "new" B20 arrived, the last positive update for this old dinosaur.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mechanical reliability, easy to modify, rock solid

Cons: 1957-1961 models has weak B16 engine and are rust sensitive (but looks great!)

Solid Swede — Designed and built to last forever. Felt a bit like driving a tractor or a tank, but it never let med down.

Pros: reliable, beautiful

Cons: maybe a bit... boring
