It is called "Volvo Serif Bold" (source: Advertising Guide for Volvo Retailers").

Mike,

I will look into it. The only place that I know of is a special advertising website that we, Retailers, use and it is password-enabled so I could not guide you to go there. I will see if we can download it and if we can I will then e-mail it to you.

An Adobe Postscript Type 1 typeface of it would be nice - anyone know if it exists? I would assume that in a world dominated by Micro$oft that only a Truetype version exists. Seeing as I am among the 10% of users worldwide who choose to NOT use windows, however, but instead the platform that defined the modern-day publising and graphic design methodologies, I am always doing without, due to the large monopolistic maker of substandard inoperating systems.

Anyhow, rants aside, back in 1996 I made my own letters (just the O L and V letters) in Adobe Illustrator, thanks to a point/pica scale and a Volvo emblem. Talk about anal retentancy! Took me a while to get them just right.
