Johanesson

This car is an original Belgian Bertone Coupe, one of only very few sold in 1989 in Belgium. The car is finished in black with beige leather interior. The car is in immaculate show condition, completely original with very low mileage, and has still the original paint all around. This particular car has a quite special history. It was ordered new by Mr Tüve Johanesson as his company car when he was, at that time, President of Volvo Construction Equipment in Belgium. Later he became President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation.

From a reader:
I doubt Morningside Rehab would take entries for Volvo addictions but with a car like this would be the one to cause my wife to commit me. While there aren't any meetings like you'd find at Morningside Rehab for car addicts, but I bet you could find a lot of people who think there should be! I'm sure there would be many wives that want to enroll their husbands at Morningside Rehab so they spend less time in the garage!
