    It’s an 04 Xc70. This one has the 60/40 seats so I don’t have to worry about the center (wish I had the 3-way split, though).

    No pictures at the moment. I will try to get some soonish.

    It would be a shame to subject it to that. Way too nice an interior.

    Which reminds me of a painter who got a VERY good deal on a Mercedes 600, the V12, and used it as his work vehicle.
    A roof rack with ladders and buckets of paint in the back seat.
    It took the piss out of quite a few people!

    Since it's local, have you gone to inspect it yourself? Almost sounds too good to be true you know?

    If this sick thing keeps up there will likely be lots of interesting things for sale in the coming months.

    OK. Some of us love any excuse to go check out a car/bike/sled. I were local; 60 miles is pretty far unless you need an excuse for a ride.

    The plastic “skid plate” on the C30 started flapping down the highway. Not sure what genius thinks plastic screw holes are a good idea...
    Some time with a drill and nutsert tool and voila!

    Volvo Car Company Founded (1927)

Their first car—nicknamed "Jakob"—rolled off the line on April 14, 1927, which Volvo considers its founding date. The following year, they created a truck that was immediately popular and contributed to the company's early success. The name Volvo is Latin, not Swedish, and means what? More... Discuss
