Mine by a homacide detective in Protland OR and one other by a DEA type agent in the New York area. I found it that quite interesting considering that the P6 was the car of choice for the Met police in London when I was a child.

Also, a lot of college professors who were also into Volvos and medical 
doctors. I have a brochure specifically targeting doctors that was 
published by Rover and distributed as an insert in some sort of medical 
journal. I think that Rover's efforts to market the P6 as a car with 
advanced safety features explains why a lot of people who were likely to 
buy Volvos also bought Rovers. Between the two brands, the Rover was 
certainly more interesting, more stylish, and generally better 
appointed. That's not taking anything away from Volvo sedans of the 60's 
and 70's as they were specifically intended to be supremely practical 
and absolutely reliable. And they were.
