Welcome!  This site is dedicated to Vintage Volvo cars...mostly the models 122 (Amazon) and 1800 coupe (as also driven by Roger Moore playing the TV character The Saint ), and also the 444 and 544 models...keeping them running, reliable, and safe while having a bit of *fun.  We are not affiliated with Volvo or the Embassy of Sweden.  Click on this link if you were looking for the Embassy of Sweden in Washington D.C.

This site is NOT sponsored by: Lucas factory motto:  Home Before Dark!      How can a country which is the home of most Formula 1 teams and therefore also capable of the finest in engineering and materials, foist such junk on customers?  or I've had a total of two cups, and finished them only because they were so expensive, not flavorful!  If bigger is better, I guess they figured burnt to a crisp is better than roasted.  Too bad, I like coffee.

 

...but it might be sponsored by:

Consume alcohol responsibly...we don't suggest or support impaired driving...but a beer sponsored racecar leading to drinking while driving makes about as much sense as a Sherwin-Williams sponsored racecar leading to painting and driving, or a Viagra sponsored racecar leading to . . .
