My classic volvo 240

Post by Nathc2 » Fri Oct 24, 2014 12:49 am

I bought this car for a bargain, didn't even want a 1989 volvo but couldn't resist. Family owned since new, loads of service history, 3 owners from new, 101.500 miles and even had tax and test when I got it.

Perfect! desperately grim and all the better for it and that Beige colour is for winners!

I love stuff like that but you know under the skin you have something that was really made to last and made properly not like modern cars today so well done I hope you enjoy it.

Its a beauty - I've always had a soft spot for the old Volvos, even as a youngster... :oops:

Great to see one looking as fine as yours...

To this day I still aren't 100% sure why I even bought this, it's just at the back of my unit used as a storage bin ATM.
