|Volvo High Mileage Badge is Back
Volvo has begun offering their high mileage badges again. They are completely different
than those previously produced and won't match any others that you currently have. They
also are no longer free - cost is $16. But, at least they are available. You now have to have
at least 150,000 miles to qualify. This is a new link as of July 2011 but it doesn't tell you how
to purchase one.
Click here for link to website.
Badges are available in 150,000, 300,000 and 500,000 miles increments.

|The History of the Volvo 1800 Series
Wikipedia has an excellent history of the Volvo 1800 series which Gary found and provided to me. It
covers the different models from 1961 to 1972 so you 1800 owners can find out what your car is really
named. There were no P1800 cars after 1964 when it became the 1800S through 1969, 1800E in
1970/1972 and the 1800ES in 1972. Well written article. Click on the title above to go to the article.
