The beginning of the end of an era

It was with a heavy heart that I had to stick the below sign into the window of our beloved Volvo a couple of weeks ago:

It reads:
Much loved 1966 Volvo Amazon
My wife said it's not a good family car.
I disagreed.
She won.
Given we apparently live in suburbia, both pedestrian and road traffic is at a bare minimum, which has meant zero enquiries... until last night.
Coming back from work, I spotted a man taking a picture of the sign and thought I might have snagged me a buyer.
Sadly, he was just a divorcé whose ex-wife had forced him to sell his old car.
We shared a moment.
