I remember the '60s as being (in a sense) the golden era of European car availability as practically all marques were available here in the USA, unlike today. Just to name a few . . . all BMC products, Triumph, Rover, Citroen, Peugeot, Renault, Simca, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, NSU, FIAT, SEAT, Vauxhall, Hillman, Sunbeam, Daimler, Facel-Vega, and others - and, of course, SAAB with the 92/93 and Volvo with the 444/544/and 122S (Amazon). It was a fun time for an American automobile enthusiast, especially since most of the marques could be purchased for less than 3,000 USD! Don
