My Favorite Car: '59 Volvo PV 544, Michael Cockill, 77, Weeki Wachee

'59 Volvo PV 544

It resembled a late-1940s Ford/Mercury two-door coupe. I bought this for $1,750, instead of a Volkswagen Bug costing $1,295. It was a fun, 4-in-the-floor, sporty ride. I traded it in Hopkinsville, Ky. (Fort Campbell), for a 1961 Pontiac Catalina after becoming a family man.
