Old Timers

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.

Old Car Commercial – Volvo P1800

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!
