I've been racing my 1968 Volvo model 122-S two-door sedan at vintage events since 1996. Purchased as a "street rod" in Southern California, the car has received improvements each year aimed at gaining reliability and vintage performance. Most of my racing is in the Mid-west, often with VSCDA, the Vintage Sports Car Driver's Association (www.vscda.org), but I attempts to drive at least one new track each season, and VIRginia International had been on my "must do" list for years.As for the red/white checkered flag design of the graphics on #122, I swear the folks at Ralston-Purina have been aggressively pursuing me with offers of sponsorship. However, I steadfastly refuse sponsorship, preferring to maintain my amatuer status.Photo by Merit Gest.
