This past week I found out that Dan Allven has sold his 1961 Volvo PV544 rally car. This was the rally car that Dan had entered in the 2017 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique and I had been Dan’s navigator. Dan reports that it has been sold to someone from Holland where it will continue to be rallied in regularity rallies.

While this is good for Dan that he was able to sell the car, for me it reduces the possibility that I will be able to participate in the 2018 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique. While nothing had been confirmed by Dan, I had hoped to be Dan’s navigator once again in the upcoming Rallye Monte Carlo Historique if he decided to take part. Dan has said that he might get another rally car, but that might not happen.
As a result, unless something comes up, I might miss the chance to compete in the 2018 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique. I enjoyed this rally and I would like to compete in it again. It is unfortunate that very few American or Canadians take part in this challenging rally.
