Sneak preview.



One of only two early 244 emblems in Australia with an as-new, unfaded black background.

The other? On the passenger side, silly.

The paint work looks immaculate! Well done!

Is she (cause all cars are she's silly) going to be kept in a garage or under a nice shaded carport?

I thought that circle-and-spear symbol on the front meant that all Volvos were males!

Anyway, that orange and black and silver sure does look nice--when do we get the full show!?

The Tangerine Dream/Orange Oblong/Amber Accelerator (the latter could be a bit of a stretch) will reside beneath a carport between excursions.

The circle and spear symbol is based on Mars' shield and spear - Mars representing iron and steel being Sweden's major industry in the past. I understand the side emblem above was based on the mural crown symbol for Trollhattan, where Volvo has works.
