The Duesy cost $25,000 when the average Doctor made $3,000 a year.

Again, base and very little more, good to learn on.

I love the streamlined fuel tank with the Valkyrie boob cup.

Saw a (it turns out) Matador Red '57 on my way to the grocery store this afternoon. Very pretty.

By the time they reached that point post PV544, except for the gorgeous 1800s, not cool any more.

I remember driving to work one morning with a lot of fresh snow back when the snowplow left a little on the side streets without anyone suing the town.
There was a Volvo either 444 or 544 stopped in the street and he flagged me down. Said he had dead battery and wanted a push to jump start it. I got out and looked because my '67 Ford F250 Ranger Camper Special was higher than than average bear. Not jacked up just a full sized pickup on 16 inch split rims. But I digress...

I was worried about overriding his bumper but he had fairly big bumper guards and he was convinced it would be ok. Since the plow left a half inch of snow getting him rolling and let him coast to jump start wouldn't work, I had to keep pushing while he jumped it. It fired up he waved and took off, probably late for work. As he drove away I could see the trunk lid was pushed in. I regret that to this day.

In the mid '50's, one of my best friends had a 444 or 544, which I always thought looked like miniature '41 Fords.
It had enough miles (a million?) to need a rebuild and the story went that block's Swedish steel was so strong it broke the bore bar.
I've never been sure if it was true.

Speaking of a million miles, I was really impressed by Volvo ads featuring salesman Irv Gordon's P1800.

I can't buy the boring bar story, but the cars are built strong. I've got one I know is true. My buddy worked as a mechanic at a Volvo dealership and said if a light bulb burned out all you had to do is pull the bulb and turn it around because they used dual element bulbs where they only needed one. They're probably all LEDs now but it shows the line of thinking.

How many inches from the pavement is your ass, if the tires on your car come up chest-high? Can you imagine how that Jag handles? Unbelievable, gobsmacking design.
