In True Swedish Spirit

Volvo Duett

There were a few Swedish cars at the Retrorun meet that I visited on Sunday, and in true nationalistic spirit I had to find my favorite among them. And after an hour or so I spotted this very blue Volvo Duett with the two Swedish flags and my search was over. It's been worked over a bit and is now a very different looking convertible. One detail that I liked was the blue clock. To see that you may need to have a look at the original size.

Olivier is right she got teeth! Another very funny capture, the clock is absolutely in tone.

Volvos are very cool these days, with their AWD capacity (I like the XC60 very much, but it's way out of my price range! We got a Subaru instead). In the past they had a reputation for being staid and "clunky", but this one just takes the cake! What a hoot!

Visions in blue...even the blue butterfly clock. What fun!

OMG Steffe! Vilken drommmmmbil! Love this photo and the Swedish blue color! I'd play ABBA music very loudly up E4 on my way to Ornskoldsvik if I had this car! Utmarkt! Halsningar fran Hagen
