The old Volvo
This model was a common sight on the roads when I was a kid. Time has made them a rare sight today and it was a joy to see this well kept old Volvo. I don’t know if the model was sold on export with a different model name, but it was sold as “Volvo Duett” here in Sweden.
Many of this car’s siblings had days full of hard work and even if they were built to last long, time and rust made their lives come to an end in the scrap yard.
I had never thought of its rather chubby look until now, but I should have known better. The front has the same design as Volvo PV 444 and 544 had (the first model Volvo sold on export if I am right). I tried to figure out why I hadn’t thought of this before and concluded that the answer is rather simple: I’m used to see them from a child’s perspective – not from an adult’s.
