DT Private Reserve: Swedish Jackpot: 1966 Volvo Pee1800
Welcome to the new and improved Daily Turismo Private Reserve, where
our motto is: “Buy nigh, sell slow, and keep your reserves private.” Up next is a favorite of the staffers at the Daily Turismo, a Volvo Pee1800 — lets see how the seller answers our questionnaire.
Please describe the above photograph: Understeer?
How did you acquire the most awesomest of Volvos? Uhh…I bought it? You guys serious about this questionnaire? I don’t think awesomest is a word.
Where would you rank the launch of Volvo’s 1800 in terms of historical significance to the following events — eruption of Mt Vesuvius, Council of Trent, 1996 Kiss reunion tour, your mother’s birth: I’m not sure where to even begin with this questions, I just wanted to sell my Volvo and maybe buy an Alfa GTV.
How much do you want for your 1800? Do you accept bitcoins? I don’t even know what a bitcoin is, but I am looking for $10,000 obo for my 1800. Nonesense, we won’t let you sell it for anything less than $50,000. Wha…transmission ended.

seriously want to buy this car please go stand outside on your sidewalk
wearing a rose in your lapel and singing the theme song from Cheers; I
will be around shortly to give you a test drive.
I'm so confused
I like the idea of a "private reserve" for you to sell readers cars. Charge 100 bucks to run the sale and see where it goes, but make it better then BaT somehow. You already beat them with your editorial comments on the posted cars and the posted cars here are cheeky and much less money. The problem is to keep from selling problems so you must have a ton of pictures posted somewhere and access to the friendly seller.
The car collection shown in the second pic above pales in comparison to my fleet of oddballs, but there's something to be said for a Pee1800 wearing its original shade of Chartreuse Piss nitrocellulose lacquer as applied at the Pressed Steel factory in Linwood, Scotland all those years ago. This particular Volvo is said to be 100% original down to the air in the tires and the gellified fuel in the tank. Just how I like them – overpriced and undrivable!
