1x Volvo P1800 & 2x Alfa Romeo’s

Well this was quite the spotting… A Volvo P1800, a Alfa Romeo Milano Verde V6 and an Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 Iniezione.  I am under the impression that these are owned by the employees or business owners of the automotive shops here in Silverlake, near Hyperion Ave. Bask in this Swedish and French street parked invasion.

And check out some previous Alfa’s and Volvo’s we’ve spotted:

1988 Volvo 740 Turbo Estate Wagon

Here we go, back to the old, somewhat unique, if not mundane cars we’re used to seeing.  I am setting a goal this year to photograph a variety of cars that range from classic, vintage vehicles and trucks to modern exotics and just plain cool cars.

Today we have a 1988 Volvo 740 Turbo Estate. Don’t let the turbo emblem fool you, these vehicles were not adrenaline pumping performance machines… no the turbocharger just helped you haul more of your junk up a hill quicker. This example is extremely clean and a perfect time capsule for 80’s automobile finesse.  If I owned this car –  I would get those plastic trim pieces refreshed and bring back their luster. Enjoy/
