I used to be a contractor at the Hewlett-Packard company in the late 1990s, before the merger with Compaq, and when David Packard was still alive. I based much of my own company’s culture on “The HP Way” and Lamborghini’s company culture in the 1960s.
I have lived with Volvos since I was 10 years old, and the family car was a 1972 Volvo 164 that I later ended up buying and driving.
One of my favorites is a 1973 145 that I’ve owned since the early 1990s. I converted it to a Weber DGV carburetor after the fuel injection had an issue I couldn’t fix.
Also one of my favorites is a 1981 two-door Turbo 240 that I’ve owned since the late 1990s.
I love Volvos. I’ve owned more than a dozen of them, almost all of them 140 and 240 models. Much as I already respected the brand even before I started working on them personally, my respect skyrocketed after that.
If, like me, you like the simplicity and looks of the 240 series Volvos, you’ll want to keep your classic Volvo reliable, fun and safe as long as you viably can.
I intend for my company to make your mission more viable.
