Abandoned Car of the Week

This circa 1973-75 Volvo 164E was found off U.S. 301 in eastern North Carolina resting on blocks. The 164 was Volvo's first venture into the luxury segment built between 1968-1975. More than 46,000 were sold before it was superseded by the 264 in 1975. It was powered by a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine. The engine was fuel injected in 1972 hence the "E" designation. According to Volvo, the 164E was fairly powerful for the time capable of a 0-to-60 run in about 8.6 seconds. (Photos by Jim Meachen)
