YAK Car Pic of the Day

On a drive through Saratoga Springs a while ago, we spotted this For Sale 1966 Volvo 122 outside of a repair shop. In Sweden it was called the Amazon, which you must admit is a much more interesting name, but I always wondered why they didn’t call it that everywhere. Turns out (according to Wikipedia) that a German motorcycle manufacturer had already registered the Amazon name, and would allow Volvo to use it only domestically for its new car. Whatever it was called, these things were tanks!
