I know the modern European version of the Volvo has an image of being 'safe' and 'reliable', fair enough, but they're not considered very attractive aesthetically. That made this video a great treat. Watch out for the trucks around 1.28 seconds in. Class!

I liked those old trucks and the cars were actually pretty nice. European cars just aren't my thing, though. I'll take American cars, and especially trucks over European vehicles any day.

I like the blocky look that some of the Volvos have (like the one at 3:05). I also like how the engines are so accessible in the older cars, not all tucked away in the body where I can't work on it like with newer cars.

I tend to like the older trucker than the cars but I could see a friend of mine driving something like that. He is full of the random "eccentric" type looking auto's.

You can not have a classic without adding in a Volvo PV 36 Carioca! It just looks like a little easy rider that has a little pzazz to it. I really adore some of the auto's from that time now if I could just get my hands on one.

Honda desired its Volvo functions to create a car that could contend in the South U. s. stream-lined industry. When both designs were legally released in 2000, the Volvo used a 1.9-litre, four-cylinder website that was turbocharged.

I never was really much of a Volvo fan. I don't know why, but the style just never appealed to me. I like European cars, but could never appreciate the Volvo.

I think Volvo's are good cars, but I prefer other models. The reason is pretty stupid, I have an ex who used to drive a Volvo and I actually have some bad memories with Volvo's.
