Needs some love but has my favourite graphics package. I need to find a four door version of this.

I also spotted a pretty decent white Amazon wagon by the drive but it was gone by the time I swung back to get a photo.
Not a '78. Wrong tail lights...

You could make a 4-door version...it's all cosmetic stuff. I had that front end on my '85 245Ti for a while. Most people never noticed but the odd Volvo guy would do a double-take...

I just thought '78 since there were no butt cheeks. Just when I think I have this figured out. So..what year is it?

I am slowly going with a 4-door GTish look, although not the grille. I just meant the striping package. I know guys make the 2 door kit but haven't asked if they would modify the sides for 4 doors. No rush since I need a bit of painting first.

LOL, how true. Most people think it's just another boring Volvo.

With respect to the 242GT, it's a '79. 1980 had the spare tire wells and the 1980-82 (or 1985 for up there) front spoiler. My 245 has the suspension of a '79 242GT on it right now...

Just over for meetings. I have a client that's based in the office tower by Park Royal.

Yep, that is the donor car for your roof rack.

Nice, but the whitewalls don't look right. Suspect someone couldn't afford 185/70R14's, so they got 185/75R14's instead.

93,000 km, that's not much at all.

I'm surprised at how many of these cars I've seen IRL. The facepunched 142 was parked RIGHT in front of the last studio I worked at and I saw that silver 745 like yesterday. I need to take a picture of the dude a few blocks away who has a newer Vsomething, a 745, 242 and an Amazon under a tarp in the backyard. I met him once and he has a wagon inna garage too.
