Volvo P1800

this is a really great looking car...i think it combines the best of american muscle plus some euro styling...

I'd say that car combines more British sports car than American muscle, at least in looks. It has the exaggerated long hood like an early Aston Martin DB6



and the clean roofline of a late model TVR Tuscan.



Beautiful car, no question.

It also bears resemblance to the original Volvo P1800...

My neighbours' uncle had an old P1800. Very cool car especially when you're a little kid!

I had strong emotions for this Volvo. When i had the chance to sit in it, it felt a bit clausthrophobic ;-) but i still love the design. What about a VW Karmann Ghia?

When I was a kid, I remember Roger Moore driving a 1960-something P1800 in "The Saint" TV show.
