    My wife and I have a child on the way and need a good 2nd car for commuting in the DC area -- we both don't like how lethargic our 1993 Volvo 245 is in traffic, but agree the utility of Volvo stationwagons is unmatched, even by our fullsize Land Rover. So I got the permission to find us another station wagon and was given a $15k budget. Decent low mile XC70s start at $25k; nice V60s can be had for $16-18k, but not much at $15k and they're not really stationwagons. Acura Sportwagons are impossible to find and while the Regal Tour X is prob one of the best deals out there you can't get them for less than $25k.

    So I began the hunt for a nice clean V70. I had the R in the back of my mind but figured there'd be no way I'd find one easily, much less a low mile. A nice one just sold on Bring a Trailer and I figured it'd be at least 3-6 months before another surfaced. well, it only took me two weeks.

    i just bought this. 2000 (P80) Volvo V70 R... with 81,000 miles. 1 of 500 brought by Volvo to the USA. astonishingly clean. bucket list car for me. i'm over the moon. $14k. bummer about the autos, but ALL the P80s brought to the US were autos apparently. Only Canada got manuals. it positively growls.

    I used to live down the street from a guy who has two of these in his driveway. I had an S60R at one point. Nice cars!

    This should be boiler plate language in every Craigslist ad.

    I wasn’t sure I wanted the red, my last one was black over tan, but it is growing on me.

    Clifford was a company that made performance parts for various I6 engines back in the '60s and '70s. Their slogan was 6=8. Might be one of theirs.

    Looks like they're still around.
