Hindustan Ambassador, Good Design Since 1948

An Aussie Banshee for the US
We are entering a time where globalization is turning the automotive world into an automotive neighborhood. A place where everyone lives together, knows each other, and is deafened by the sound of some idiot in a Bathurst with a supercharger.
