Classic Muscle Cars of Yeteryear

Recommended Posts

Some more P1800 and GTO bliss..

Both owned by one of my best friends. He is only the second owner of the Judge, bought it in '82. He lent the Volvo to his younger brother one too many times several years ago.

Am I missing something about this Volvo P1800?

Everything I've read says it was like 125 horsepower.

Hardly what I'd term a muscle car by any stretch of the imagination.

Not that big of a deal.

Just sayin'.

It had incredible handling and stability characterises, the brakes on it would never get hot, so the car would stop on dime, and it got GREAT gas mileage and it had very nice lines on it; a timeless look. It also had a high end interior which looked mordern. Vehicles from America were really heavy, absolute pigs in the corners, had horrible brakes, and drank a lot of gasoline and really terrible interiors. The Volvo P1800 is a classic.

I agree with you on the fact that there ain't much muscle there! So, a muscle car? Not so much.

I like your taste in cars Charles.

Here is one of my childhood favourites, 1973 Buick Riviera. My Dad had one of these and our whole family loved this car.

Well, it's actually from the movie 'American Graffiti'. They (Harrison Ford) calls it a piss yellow deuce coupe. It's a great movie about hot rods. You should watch it if you haven't.
