Chuck Buchanan, Owner

He was born August 18th, 1945; Elmira, New York. Chuck’s family moved to Waldo, Florida in 1959. After attending high school and community college, he joined the Navy in 1962 where he served aboard the US Nantahala. After two years of service, he returned to Waldo where he worked as a machinist and technician. In 1970, he began working on Volvos at a local service station and is still working on them now 44 years later.

He married in 1971 to his wife Patti and the couple moved to Gainesville, FL with their son Charlie and daughter Annette. Chuck began working at the Gainesville Volvo dealership Harfred in 1972. He & his wife welcomed the arrival of their youngest child, another daughter Carol in 1974.

The family moved to Greenville, SC in 1979 when Chuck was transferred to the Volvo dealership there. One year later, after receiving an offer for employment from the Volvo dealership here in Tallahassee, Courtesy Cars, he moved his family back to Florida. While employed at the local dealership, he attended Volvo school for continued training & development yearly and held the title of “Master Volvo Technician” until he left in 1994. He then became self-employed, contracting his services to a local independent Volvo repair facility. In April of 1997, he opened what is still Vol-Car today and currently resides in NE Tallahassee with his wife Patti.
