CC Outtake: Volvo PV 544 – No, It’s Not 1969

CC 230 103 1200

This old Volvo PV 544 with a load on its roof takes me back to the late sixties and early seventies, when these cars were very popular with youthful owners, as a faster alternative to a VW Beetle. My brother’s best friend had one, and I used to love riding in it, hearing the throb of its engine, and watching the long shift lever move in relationship to the engine’s torque output.
