    Another great article as always petrolicious :) I have always loved the volvo p1800. Its one of the few volvos id actually like to own and the story behind this one is one more reason i love being a car guy! Most people see cars as just a pile of metal, glass,plastic or maybe a tool to get you from point A to point B but when you see stories like this you realize there is so much more to a car like passion ,beauty,connection with other people. i dont know of many other products that even come close to what a car can do for the soul

    Omg Petrolicious, that chromatic aberration is something I would not expect from you guys, cheers! (Please don't take it as a rude comment)

    C'mon, this is a wonderful story. The wedding photographer took these shots -- not Petrolicious staff.

    maybe the chromatic aberration is style ?

    anyways congrats to the happy couple, this looks like a threesome that won't end in tears.

    and congrats to petrolicious for another fine story !

    This is one of those couples that're going to grow old and still be driving that car around because it's always been there and it's just as much a family member as either of them. What a wonderful story.

    Beautiful car. Great dealer, they worked on our Jag. Just one comment. It's over 2000 miles from Boston to Colorado Springs.

    I've got an oddly similar old Volvo story. I bought my 1967 122s while living in the Berkshires of Western MA (same as this dude), around the time I started dating my then-girlfriend-now-wife (same as this dude). She helped me move it 1200 miles (same as this dude). It's been such a "constant" in our relationship that we also used it in our wedding (same as this dude). Photos here and here.

    Very nice article. The photos are fantastic, and that's one of the most sorted looking examples of a P1800 that I've ever seen. I've always appreciated the boldness of the styling (albeit a bit awkward), and think that the car is under appreciated in that sense.

    The Saint would be proud.

    Cheers

    Great pictures! I also have a similar story: Purchased white 1964 122S from my Dad in 1968, met my future wife from the Berkshires in 1969 and we proceeded to drive it all over New England together for the next 3 years. Was a part of our wedding in 1972. Will try to find some pictures of it as I took alot of photos in those days.
