    A VIEW IN HISTORY (a little story from the CCNL-clubmagazine 't2PKtje):

    In the early sixties the strange carbuilder Citroën had 3 extraordinaire looking cars in production: the 2CV, the DS and the square HY-van. To fill the gap between the "duck" and the "goddess" they introduced a fourth: the AMI6. This was technically based upon the 2 cilinder 2CV and it's outlook was dominated by the extraordinary lookung "rainfree" rear window. With the AMI6 the French carmaker had a car which was attractive to the biggest group of customers. In the 19 years that the AMI6 (and 8) was delivered in Nederland, Citroën sold 44.000 of them. The top-year was 1969 with 4.178 Ami's.
