Great rendering, I'm 68 now, looks like my life with volvos over the years... Lost track of rear drive volvos I've owned at 100... Now doing 90s BMW cars... On my 25th of those now and counting... Driving a 96 328i sedan with 88k miles and a 99 528i sedan with 141k... Oh yeah and a 98 mustang gt with 94k, latest acquisition... For most of my volvos I did not and still dont have the luxury of a garage still working in the driveway... Love that cupholder armrest, had a few of them, always a great day in the junkyard when I scored one ....

ohhh

This is one of those ad photos where it oozes cool , something I feel porsche or bmw would do, but all these OEM options make it look so different than a standard spec, really spicey with the race bike, we get the drift . Its a great looking car, great shot ! And oh so stock!

Cool picture. This is reminiscent of the drawings from the John Muir VW repair
manuals called 'How to keep your volkswagon alive'. Mr. Cohen must have read
those books. Thanks for posting that.

This is basically my life everyday except with 240s even though I am restoring one 745(the first and last).

Ha, that's one of my favorite auto books. Have a worn copy in the garage. Good stuff.
