Perhaps not the typical Volvo 1800 owner, Neil’s hankering for the model derived from a life-long exposure to Volvo cars in general – not from “The Saint” TV show, as some might suppose!
Neil’s father was in the Volvo Owners Club, and Neil accompanied him to many rallies, where the 1800 gradually became the focus of his attention. He has owned several 1970s-era Volvos since the early 1980s; in fact, his first Volvo, a 1973 144S, was his first car, bought before he could even drive.
Neil acquired his first 1800, a 1970 1800E, in 1988. He has owned and worked on them ever since, and now shares his first-hand experience and expertise in this book.
