I am glad that Inga has brought about such comments and strolls down memory lane. She is a 1966 Volvo with a push button start and a steerig wheel that is so round it skims the tops of your thigh. I have driven Inga for almost 20 years and she drives like a dream. It is truly a wonderful experience. I also drive a 1987 Volvo 240 DL station wagon named Annabelle. There have been 2 other Volvo's in my life, a 1964 Volvo 122 (Yellow Amazon) and a 1961 Volvo 544 (Sigsbee). Both are now in a better place thanks to other drivers I might add...

Hi: My first car was a 1959 Volvo 544. I was in love with a P1800 but not my bank manager or insurance agent.

The Volvo 66 was driven by an unique system of V-belts on variable diameter pulleys, which gave smooth, no-shift acceleration from zero to top speed. Even driving through steep terrain across the Alps, the transmission worked efficiently and effortlessly. Of the three Volvos I've owned, the 66 was our favorite!
