A big welcome to my P1800 pages. Hopefully the information,
mainly in pictures as it happens, will inform & inspire in the manner intended.
Apologies now for some of the photos - I blame my inability with a camera.
That and my lack of time to perfect skills in Photoshop.
Some of the pictures are a little bizarre and may well take you a while to
figure out just what it is you are looking at. But it's OK, that's normal!

|A pictorial events diary of a 1970 Volvo 1800E|
Collecting the beast - End of July 1999.
Car had rested in the barn behind for several years. Run occasionally etc.
A couple of shots of car loading the Swedish way.
Looking good maybe but appearances are deceptive!
The car's history: 4 or 5 previous owners, never been far from Gothenburg
in all its days. Original colour (Volvo #100), original B20E engine.
160,000kms on the clock.
Known problems: seized brakes, fuel-pump noisy, sills rotten.
The rear of the car had been repaired & resprayed due to collision damage sometime ago.
An excellent lead led to a heated and well equiped garage
being located not far from work. So here goes...(or how it went...)
