Sweet! Volvo isn't it?

George said...

The car looks as if it's frowning. I guess it's sad about being neglected. This is a wonderful sepia photo.

Patti said...

What a great photo! I know Ralph will know what this is.

I agree with George, The car does have a rather sad face.

Happy Sepia Scenes!

Rose said...

I would love to have a car like that that was fixed up and ready to go!

Ralph said...

I love the look of this old Volvo, a 544 I believe. The style is classic, the new Volvos good looking in a modern way, but not a timeless look like this. Sepia is a fine enhancement for surface rust, taking the imperfection and making it beautiful. A lovely tok of the past in sepia!

Paulie said...

Looks like my Dad's old car. . . but then maybe not as he did not have a Volvo but a Chevy. (Not a 59 Chevy -- I know what that car looks like -- in ct the only one I can really recognize. lol

I also left a comment on two below this one -- I guess the blog updater isn't working again and I got behind.

I'll steer while you push. LOL Nice shot. Sepia is perfect for this old buggy.

Annie said...

Cool! Literally. Is that a broken window? Is there snow IN the car?

Leif Hagen said...

I think that old beater has run out of more than just gas...

Jacob said...

Uh, oh! I had a car just like that...a 1960 Volvo. But at the time we lived in Phoenix and it ran hot constantly! Finally sold it. But it was cute...bright red!

We also had a 1958 Volvo when living in Minneapolis...It was a lemon.

Fine photo, EG!

You found a terrific subject for sepia. It is sad it was neglected. I watch restored car auctions on TV with my Hubs - if only they had saved the body. :)
Round The Bend.

Great car. I wonder if it'll start in spring.

Leora said...

Looks like the first car we had when I was a kid - and some teens took it for a joy ride and junked it.

You romanticize the whole thing with the sepia.

Becky and Gary said...

A 544 Volvo! Does that ever bring back memories! I had a mint green one back in 1967! I loved that car.
I bought it brand new for $2000.00
Can you believe it.
Thanks for sharing.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I'm shocked that someone hasn't snapped that old car up --and make it look brand new. There are people who do that!!!!! I think I've seen this car---or a similar one!!!! (Shows my age, doesn't it???? ha)
Hugs,
Betsy

«Louis» once had a Volvo mechanic who kept up «Louis's» Volvo. The mechanic had one of these in white, but it had black primer spots all over it. «Louis» nicknamed the mechanic's Volvo 'the Dalmatian'.

Tricia said...

that's a cool sepia, as always! you're so creative!

kaye said...

I love this shot! so much personality.

Small City Scenes said...

It looks a bit broken and the sepia fits it perfect. MB

Saretta said...

All I can say is rust, rust, rust. That snow can't be any good for that old beauty!

Cezar and Léia said...

That car needs some serious TLC.

RuneE said...

A Swede would cry over this old Volvo - we others appreciates the picture

Oh great pictures!

Tammie Lee said...

I love seeing old cars that are becoming one with the earth. I like it even more when they are kept up and on the road...

Michelle said...

What a neat old car.

kalamarie123 said...

I love that old car - what a great shot!

Craver Vii said...

Wouldn't it be great to have one of those old cars in perfect shape? I'd love to drive around in that!
