What It's Like To Drive The Only* Autozam AZ-1 In America What It's Like To Drive The Only* Autozam AZ-1 In America

The Japanese auto industry isn't what it was 20 years ago. The ridiculous performance cars of the 1990s have, with a few exceptions, yielded to staid and respectable sedans and crossovers.
