This is next feature is intriguing, which Merriam-Webster defines as : engaging the interest to a marked degree : FASCINATING. I’ll start with the obvious, it is a Volvo 1800 (aka P1800, 1800S, etc) with nice paint that is photographed in a small crowded garage in the Sunset District of San Francisco.

The plus side is that a car that might have been crushed and recycled into manhole […]
