Here it is, my 1993 Volvo 944 Turbo. Got it in Chicago, has 95K (just breaking in). Thanks to El Guapo for his advice on what to look for, what to avoid, and how to make sure that it makes it another 300K or so. Now, if there were only a good Volvo mechanic in Decatur...

Sweet, I've been eyeing up 3-4 year old S70's lately, but I just can't part with the coinage. Congrats DH.

nice, I still havent given up my grey 91 740. We are thinking of keeping her now. It only has 125k.... and it is a fairly comfy commuting car. Mine is sported up with my Swedish roof rack system....

now THIS is what I'm lusting after for a Volvo. Yeah the new ones are nice and all, but an old classic like this? Can't be beat in my book.
