Volvo 1800S Is Integral to this Husband and Wife's Relationship
Owner: Michael Wayne

Michael and his wife made the decision to incoporate Michael's 1800S into their wedding photo shoot when they tied the knot last year. The Volvo 1800S has always been an integral part of their relationship and holds sentimental value to both of them; Michael drove one on their first date, and together they made a 1200-mile round-trip journey to acquire this current one. The car has been a constant in their ever changing lives in Boston, where they both live and work, and they determined that it will be something they'll continue to enjoy together as the years unfold.
Michael spent five years searching for the right 1800; the year, color, and condition had to be just right. A love for Volvo 1800s runs in the family; back in 1969, his father took a European delivery of a Volvo 1800S, and Michael's older brother has owned a number of examples over the years. Right out of college, Michael found his first 1800S on a farm in Kansas and purchased it as a project. He learned a great deal from the car but longed for a more solid example to refine; then proceeded the five-year search.
