volvoTwo car enthusiasts within a few blocks of our home in East Sacramento both own Volvo P1800s. I don’t know the people, but I admire the cars they drive, and apparently lots of readers of The Daily Telegraph like to the car, too. The London-based newspaper, which this week is unveiling its readers’ selections of “The 100 Most Beautiful Cars” selected the Volvo as No. 100.

The newspaper commented: “According to one reader, ‘It looks even better when you remove its front and rear bumpers.’ ”
