    Volvo Amazon (1968) by Piet Wijbenga. A class car. 

    We like to use the word 'image' when we talk about Volvo models. Image is the image that exists of Volvo and is precisely used when it comes to the Swedish quality product. Surrounded by solidity, safety and comfort, Volvo has a strong reputation. Piet Wijbenga, the owner of this 1968 Volvo Amazon, can confirm this. Sea

    Saab Convertible 900 Turbo (1988) by Rob

    The classic of Sweden is sometimes said, but we think that the beautiful stylish and now rare convertible also deserves that predicate in the Netherlands. We encountered this extremely tempting form of transport on the Wadden diamond Ameland with Hillie (Rob's wife) behind the wheel. Rob turned out to be a car coddler who, together with his wife Hillie, has the necessary outdoor fun with the Saab.  Sea

    Volvo P 1800 (1964). Pieter Postma's car

    Beautiful women, ugly crooks, fast cars and dangerous adventures. The elderly, feeling young, still know Simon Templar (aka The Saint) (Roger Moore) as a charming adventurer and charmer, who drove a Volvo 1800S. This popular TV series certainly contributed to the success of that model. This Swedish sports car, a Volvo P 1800, also received star status.  Sea

    Volvo Duett (1959). Today's technology, the look of the past

    The statement: Driving with the old technology is precisely the charm of the classic hobby. A statement with which Ebele Visser does not agree at all. His mission: Look as original as possible, but only with modern technology. His reliving is therefore purely because of the model. The technique is a creative project, a very own idea, a personal form of expression. You could also say: A creative activity. Like his 1959 Volvo Duett.  Sea

    VOLVO 66 (1979). Hobby car from DAF enthusiast Tom Nauta

    It is beyond dispute that Tom is a fan of our Dutch passenger car. His car life started with a Daffodil. Then a DAF 33 and two station wagons of the type 55. The DAF passenger cars were produced until 1975, after which the Swedish Volvo took over the passenger car division and the DAF 66 became Volvo 66 with the necessary modifications. Sea

    Volvo 340

    Volvo 340. The car that was actually a DAF. A car that was launched included teething problems that you would expect with British or Italian cars. The car with the advanced stepless drive of the DAFs from before. These 'as good as Volvos' survived their difficult childhood and became well-behaved bourgeois compact middle-class cars. Sea

    SAAB 96 (1963): Friendship for life

    For Sjoerd Helbig it was by no means a sad sight when his Saab 96 saw sunlight again for the first time after more than 35 years. The introduction to his first Saab goes back to his youth when the spark broke and he became addicted to Saab. He drove some of his favorite model 96 […] Sea

    Volvo Amazon 122 S. Rally monster from Albert van den Berg

    For Albert, the 67'er Volvo gives a lot of fun. He is a member of a veterans club and social contacts are important to him. His Volvo Amazon 122 S no longer competes for the beauty trophy. For example, he applied the color himself with a roller, put the bumpers in the chrome paint and also applied a roll bar for safety.  Sea

    Volvo Duett 1959. Understated luxury

    The Volvo Duett now has a legendary status. It is the patriarch of the later classic Volvo station wagons. An original Dutchman in a beautiful color scheme of maroon & white. We found a classic that you no longer encounter every day in Wouterswoude.  Sea

    Volvo P 1800 from Jan Venema

    If you stand in front of this stylish Volvo P 1800, you can think back to a day (1963) when this very nice copy was picked up at the dealer. Later in the street the family and the enthusiastic neighbors enjoy the beautiful blue paint. The nice smelling upholstery. The brand new tires and the sparkling chrome, a feast for all senses. Sea

    Volvo GTZ 3000 according to Zagato

    We recently talked about the BMW made by Frua in the story about the unique Mercdes-Benz 300 SEL 6,3 that was made at Pininfarina. By the way, two have been made, of which 50% of the production has now been saved. And then there was also the Volvo that came with […] Sea
