It sure is the good old Amby. I personally love the rear seat but nothing more than that. I really wish to see the Ambassador get modern, something which was done with the MINI or the FIAT 500, 'but' and its a big 'but' if the Grand Dad of Indian cars is going to go through this metamorphosis.
It will always be the Ambassador.
What I like about it is all that space and comfort at the rear. What I hate was its reliability factor,but still it was pretty good for its time. And back in the days an Ambassador meant Prestige and status and a Fiat was a performance car.
It's the ambassador for me too. It's the car that has been on Indian roads for a long time and I get nostalgic when I think of the ambassador. A lot of tourists who come to India, travel in the ambassador because they consider it to be India's pride.
