Honest Classic: 1966 Volvo 122S Sedan

The term honest classic doesn’t have a good definition in major established media, but if I were writing the Wikipedia article for the term, I’d use this next car for the cover image. It has the all the charisma and class you need to park next to a Mercedes 300SL without being embarrassed, but you could also take it shopping at Walmart and park next to a Honda…it really doesn’t care. Find this 1966 Volvo 122S offered for $6000 in Chico, CA via craigslist.
