Probably the coolest disappearing headlights of the era - someone needs to bring this feature back to modern cars…
1965 Buick Riviera
The final 240 that rolled off the production line on May 5, 1993, was a highly unusual car- a special, wildly shortened wagon that its 240-bolaget builders built for fun and said represented Volvo’s “shortened lead times.”

Morning in the Redwoods.
The More You Know: These are the only two pictures that remain of Volvo’s custom built dvärg line (miniature line). Volvo considered bringing these micro cars to market in 1998 in response to changes made to Sweden’s disability laws, which required domestic manufacturers to sell vehicles specifically designed for the vertically challenged. Volvo engineers named the cars Jan and Bo, after Volvo founder Assar Gabrielsson’s two children. No one knows what happened to the dvärg Volvos. Some say Jan and Bo were crushed, others say they have seen them darting around Trollhättan occasionally, and some say they never existed.
Wagonation News: Rumors can be confirmed, Volvo is bringing back a proper wagon to the USA in 2014. He he! (via Jalopnik)
Volvo P1800 (1961-73)
This is most likely the 1800S, manufactured from 1963-79. The “S” denotes it was manufactured in Sweden, after the company took over production from it’s contract builder, British sportscar manufacturer Jensen.
If you can’t tell already, I have a soft spot for these cars, How can you not? To me, it proves that a company known more for practicality and endurance can have a little fun as well. On one hand, the low roofline and sweeping trim give it an aggressive stance, but the eggcrate grille is the automotive equivalent of Mona Lisa’s smile; you can’t exactly be sure if the designers were trying to make it look serious or playful.
This one’s for sale, but surely out of my price range.
Seen in SE Portland
Someone has too much time on their hands.
