Called into Murray Lotus this morning to check up on a parts delivery. This is what Murray Volvo had parked next door.

 

Whilst my Granddaughter is probably the only member of my family who can get in and out of an Exige V6 S, this was the car she wanted to take home....

Ah yes an 1800ES Sports wagon.  I admired them while starting work right out of college, but couldn't afford one (my first new vehicle cost less than 1/2 what they were selling for in the US.) Your Granddaughter has great taste!!!

Only the other day I mentioned to a colleague the line "Volvos, they're boxy but they're good", the P1800 just shows how good a Volvo can look. It's enough to make me watch the TV show The saint, not for the plot, just for the car.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

I sold my 1962 Jensen built P1800 identical to the one above to buy the Esprit. A truly gorgeous car to drive and own.
