My pride and joy, won at auction above where I wanted to, but about where I expected to, and unlikely to be seen in such shape for such a price again. I love this car and hope I own it forever.

EDIT: Project link, read along as this old Volvo is reborn into a different creature: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2634

A friend scored a deal on this, and was very nice and let me score that deal instead. Thank you very much! <3

Bought for scrap price 400 by him, bought by me with WOF for 440, registered to the Mrs so she can get insurance and practice in it. I don't care much about the car itself. It's a bit rough in the front end and I mainly want the diff, trans, engine, etc.

Her golden/red heart:

Here she is, in all of her glory:

EDIT: Here she is, today, as the automotive gods intended her to be, a caravan:

Also bought for the engine and trans, but far too nice to waste, so I think I'll keep it.

Agreed to buy this before I found out I couldn't afford it. Honoured my word. Haven't picked it up, yet, but keen to start moving parts from it to the 240 wagon :-)
