That’s what they call an antique car in Europe – Old Timers. In the states, I drive a 50+ year old car (a ’62 Volvo P1800). I was pleasantly surprised by having the opportunity to have a number of car shows occur while I was visiting in various cities (Tilburg, Krakow, and Dubrovnik). I photographed quite a few vehicles for my car buddies, but I will post just a few here.
British Hillman (Won 1st place in Tilburg show)
’65 Volvo P1800
Bug-eye Sprite or Austin Healy (I can’t remember)
Fiat Barilla (Red)
Opel and Volvo 144
Mercedes (Dubrovnik clock tower at end of Stratum)
I drive an old car. 51 years old to be precise. And this week I saw a Volvo commercial with my car in it (well, technically, it’s a ’66 in the commercial, but that’s as close as I will ever get). Nice commercial, and Irv Gordon (who you will meet) is a legend in my car community.
I drive P1800 Chassis #5046, manufactured in November 1962. (When I say that I drive it, I don’t mean that I drive it as my second car; I mean that it’s the only car that I drive. 🙂 Here are some photos that I took of my car when it was tagged in California. Drive an old car? Send me a pic!
