A dark night in November 2013 I sat and edited the old films from my father and suddenly it hit me! The Volvo who left the ferry was the Volvo Venus Bilo! The car was repainted and the front bumper was mounted upside down and with danish plates. This was in the summer of -49 and far from its elegance at the premiere -33.
This is really a coincidence, my father captured this single car at this particular time and he had no idea about how unique it was.
He often talked about how great the cars were in the 30 ́th. Traffic continued to increase and the cars where magnificent. Cars like La Salle, Minerva, Isotta-Fraschini, Hispano Suiza, Voisin, Cord, Pierce-Arrow and Delahaye. Cars I never had heard of in the -60 ́th.But now they are among my favorite classic car brands.
People have asked me to make a poster of ”the last picture of the Volvo Venus” So I did and you can see it in the shop on this homepage. A numbered edition. A pride for any wall!
