Default Back in the game bishes.

The most I’ve ever spent on any volvo product, but oh-so worth it.

I just brought it home. Its got several years of dust on it right now. Can’t wait to clean it up.






And even had a bottle of touch up paint in the glove box!

Thanks y'all. I'm over the moon about it.

I checked the date code on the tires. Nineteen years old! And they look like they've only had a few miles put on them. They are definitely flatspotted too. I have driven it up to about 60 so far and it vibrates pretty good, but overall the chassis is super tight. No play anywhere.

The car was sold new in Katy (Houston) and I'm thinking it lived here it's entire life. Not sure if it's a one owner car, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Glad you included the picture of the touch up paint, I couldn't tell the color and it was pissing me off.

Roll them two decade old tires for ultra OE points

The weather's nasty here for the next few days. My wife is a Master Photographer. Once the sun comes out and I've had a chance to polish it up, we'll get some real photos. I can't wait to see what's under the dust. The paint from what I can tell is nearly flawless.
