In 1991 Lance found a 1965 Volvo P1800 for sale in Port Orchard, WA. And his life long love affair with this car went until early 2017. We called the Volvo Al, on the license plate was 483ALS. It’s still his name. In December 0f 1991
Al got his engine rebuilt; the invoices are in his file. Al also got painted by Cain Custom, Mark was an artist in car painting, restoration and total builds. Mark’s mother Mary Cain was an equally talented in upholstery; she did all the upholstery in Al. The Cain’s were part of our family, and having them in Al, was very special.
In 1996 Lance and Al entered The Ravenna Volvo Meet, Al won the Modified
Class. Lance was so proud!
In August 1999, Al did laps at Portland Raceways and was Best of Show Modified at IPD’s Portland show.
2003 Olympia WA. Al won 1st place in Modified 1800
2004 Black Hills Beer and Wine Distributors and Volvo club of America, Al was #1 in Modified 1800 Coupe
2005 Regional Meet, Al 1st place Concours Winner and People’s choice Concours Winner.
Lance took up another love , Outrigger Paddling. Al still got to go for many drive’s as long as it wasn’t raining. In Al’s trunk is a pretty great stereo system, Pink Floyd, The Dead, Moody Blues could be heard way before Al’s pipes.
