Oh yes, cool. Nothing more needed in explanation.

The ES is probably a notch or two below the coupe but not enough to drop a class here.

Nothing to add other than that it's a shame we haven't got a picture of its dashboard which is as cool as the shades that guy in the Miura wears at the start of the Italian Job.

Oh yeah I like that dashboard. The method of hiding the radio is ahead of its time, yes?

I think that's either not a factory install or it's a blanking plate.

Cool.

There was one on Wheeler dealers the other day. In fact the very car they bought lived not far from me, and I have seen it around on numerous occasions.

Someone has taken one of these to nearly three million miles. Three million.

Irv Gordon's Volvo P1800 closing in on 3 million miles

That alone makes it subzero for me.
