templar and dodging the bullet
Here we have the coolest Volvo of them all from the 1800 series designed by Swedish designer, Pelle Petterson. This is the model driven by Irv Gordon who holds the Guinness world record for highest mileage in the same vehicle (probably at 3 million miles as of this post.) Roger Moore‘s Simon Templar character in the 60′s TV series The Saint also drove one of these wedge-shaped wonders. Favourite quote: Penny Parker: “It’s the first time I ever heard a bullet.” Simon Templar: “The one you don’t hear is the bad one.” Stay tuned to next week’s episode where we’ll have another Volvo 1800 in red from the same neighborhood.
