"Today", I thought. "Today".

Today would be the day that I would, for the first time, start my 1973 Volvo P1800ES. I have restored the tank, replaced all fuel lines/pump/filters, spark plugs, fuel injectors, and more.

Today I installed the new ignition coil and spark plug wires.


Well, something - the starter works... so I guess it could be worse.

But I just want to drive.

Have a P1800ES engine bay that's a hell of a lot nicer than mine. I took this picture last weekend at the New Hope, PA Auto Show. Wish I had been able to meet the owner - they were not around.
