this is a history of my volvos through pictures. my first was a red 1992 volvo 240, it was a n/a auto but was a great car only had my license for 6 months before i totaled it by speeding/inexperiance/stupidness/wet roads i only have these pics but this car saved minimum my legs from being broken or worse....

Enjoy the car. Too bad the 850 isn't here to bomb around in.

good work! did you drive the car to MD or shipped? the red 240 didnt look that bad, probably could have been fixed pretty easily. now you are back to the 240 game! have fun! plan on fixin the rust?
