About “Clunker”

Used to be an 88hp 2.3 automatic, now is a 250hp 2.3 Turbo 5spd

About “My big sports car”

Got this car over 2 years ago from it's original owner w/239k on it, now about to turn 258k miles. These cars are described as "bullet proof" and trust me they really are. I have had at least 150 Volvos over the last 20 years, i call it my hobby/passion. Owning one for a little while, enjoy it and get a different one, pretty much like i am with my Z cars except there are a lot more older Volvos around.
