Rich actor loves and buys $750 Volvos

You may not appreciate the name outright, but you’ll certainly recognise John Rhys-Davies from a monumental number of Hollywood blockbusters. From the Indiana Jones and James Bond franchise, to playing Gimli in Lord of the Rings and everything in between, Rhys-Davies has supplied gravitas, style and clout for the industry’s leading directors. And, as it turns out, he has a wicked eye for cars.

You would expect such a pillar of the silver screen to flounce around in a Rolls-Royce, Bentley or – shudder – a Maybach. Yet, while his profile reaches further heights, his taste remains firmly down to earth. He isn’t interested in multi-million dollar Ferraris or the latest Mercedes. Rather, John prefers his Volvos. And £500 ($650) ones at that.

Flying into Edinburgh, the actor arrived upon Scottish soil to collect his latest eBay purchase – a 1996 Volvo 960, which closed at a mere £510 ($670).
