This is a well detailed article about Swedish automobiles. We had a 1960 Volvo 544 as our first sports car and we sincerely loved and enjoyed this car. Parkhurst has done a superb job of explaining in intricate detail the various Saab and Volvo automobiles at this event. It is obvious that he researches his subjects in great detail as an experienced journalist. Hopefully we will see more of his articles in various magazines in the future.

Swedish cars definitely set the bar for vehicles when maintained properly. The simplicity in design epitomizes the personality of the makers: it’s both compact and convenient. Hmm.. It reminds me of Mr. Bean’s first car in the very first episode, the 1969 BMC Mini MK II. It has kind of has the same concept in terms of design.

I have to agree with them: you provided your readers a very detailed read! Well, Swedish car manufacturers are known for their fantastic concepts. Some cars from there are indeed a bit on the more unusual side, but they have already produced a fair share of good quality cars over the years, some even iconic. :)

Well, since everyone here is astonished by these cars, I'll just share the history on how these cars became popular in the US. Primarily, these Swedish cars had attracted young professionals in the US. During the 1980s, after the release of the very first 16 valve engine 900 Turbo Aero, many Americans suddenly were drawn to the overall performance of this car.

When someone mentions the Volvo, a lot of people would most probably think of Robert Pattinson’s car in the movie “Twilight”. Haha! Most Volvo cars that we have today look a bit different from the older ones, though the vintage Volvos look even more fantastic than their descendants! Even before, you can honestly say that the Volvo has a splendid exterior.
