Saw that car, it certainly is clean. A little strange given the other cars they've got up for sale though.

yeah I saw this yesterday.

Drool indeed. Look at all the cool stuff - that steering wheel, e-codes, r-sport cluster, those switches I can't even identify on the center console.

I don't understand - car is listed at 44,000 miles or something. It has a 100k badge though. I'd think a company like that would be more legit and explain it.

"Avid Collector".Looks like a restored "kit" car.E-codes,hella fogs,rims,rally dash, maybe even repaint.Nice car but unless it has the original window sticker stating it came with all of these things that are on there right now,I say "kitcar"

Most of the descriptions are the history of the make and model. Looks a little shady.

that's how a lot of those companies play it up for people that have lots of money but aren't very smart. it's all presentation to hike the price up.

however that p1800es does look like it may legitimately have 90 miles on it.

The leather on the back seat of that 1800 is perfect, I wish my 245 had black leather like that! What happened, did they get cheap with the 240's!

Its gotta little noise because the tolerances just need to break in, but other than that, it's gravy. Tight gravy.

That is the nicest, most awesomest cluster I've ever seen. If I build up a 242, that is the cluster I'm looking for. It screams fighter jet.

both seats having wear on them begs to differ. The car seems mint it it has some so t damage or so it seems if someone were to see it in person I ha e a feeling they would confirm wear and marks in numerous places.

So I just stopped by this place on my way home! I feel bad for not being freshly shaven and not being in business attire! None the less they were very nice to me and I take back my previous comment. I drove up to this place expecting to see a parking lot full of cars, but there were none! Instead when they escorted me to the Garage I found myself in a paradise full of classic cars of every make and year! WOW, I felt like I was at a museum!

Apparently this group of Volvo's came from a dealers private collection, parked next the 245 was a hundred absolutely breath taking cars and also to my surprise a 122 and a 144 from the same collector! I felt like I was in the same building that they stole all the Ferrai's out of in Gone In 60 Seconds!

If they say that 1800 only has 90 miles, well it probably does!
