Beautiful pictures of a well-kept automobile, inside and out! Memory lane, here we come. I was 6 years old when this bus was new, and have probably droven in one of them, then......

Thank's for the ride Torgny - I think I will get off at the next stop....

That's a cool bus and nice sharp shots. I agree that this interior is looking pretty comfortable.

Thank you all,

for viewing and the comments. Perhaps the seats themselves were not so comfortable but there was room enough for your elbows, bags etc

Just a reflection. The most basic of the senses is the scent. It brings you in contact with the reptile brain. I can even remember the smell when entering one of the later models

A very special scent, even harder to describe, in words, than colours. Also remember the scent in cabs

Thank you

Torgny

Old Volvo's have character.

Actually old vehicles have character!!! I donno what it is??? It seems to have something to do with pride. And perhaps craftmanship...today you see a vehicle and it seems so inanimate, cookie cutter or.. what ever.

But you never hear a vehicle today having a 'pet' name..like 'ole betsy' like you used too.

Those are excellent pics and you captured the essence of ever child that might have taken that bus to school....(or one like it.....remember how BIG they were???)

littlejohn,

Yes they have character and everybody likes them. I've never met anyone who doesn't. Why? Well, i don't know either. Pride, craftsmanship - sure. And perhaps some other factors

Thanks for viewing and the comment
