The Volvo P1800 was luv at 1st sight for me..
Had to have one..
Loved the muffler kickback roar..
And the styling..
And esp..the 5th gear electronic overdrive..
Never owned another sports car again..
Kind of like owning a boat as they say..
The best 2 days are buying it..and selling it..
But man..that was one hell of a summer fun car..
I remember going to the beach in the P1800..what a great feeling..
Not so great a feeling..rebuilding parts of the engine in the hot summer sun when things went wrong..
But once you know what you are doing with the twin carbs etc..it was pretty reliable..
Took this when I 1st got into photography with my 1st Nikon w/50 f2..Kodak developed it and the tones were excellent on Tri-X & D76..good tones are not visible here in reproduction..
This is from 1979..
Miss that car..
Almost got another one..the P1800S station wagon version with a lot of room..it was abandoned on a back dirt road in the forest on private property..gold tone..perfect for doing gigs with drums..
Last I heard it got towed and junked..broke my heart..
