What the heck is a P1800?
Meet Helmer - a 1973 Volvo P1800ES.
This is a car that will not be given up on. Those that put their sore backs, bashed knuckles and pride into their craft, will be rewarded with a vehicle that will not give up on them.
Helmer Petterson was the guy who first dreamed up this amazing car. A 1966 owned by Irv Gordon holds the world record for accumulated mileage - 3,000,000 miles and counting
Mentors and collaborators Ed, Steve, Miguel, Kody and Jeremy, together with mentees Logan and Curtis, Wayne, Kyle and Noah are gearing up to breath new life into this tired old car. We are going to take it apart, repair, paint and polish and then put it all back together with a fresh spirit. This will happen at K.A.B. Motors and Stan's Body Shop. Two of Battle Ground's best and oldest businesses. Stop by and have a look.
