That is also a good looking 60's Ford. Galaxie? volvolugnut 1967 Galaxie Country sedan 390 with a C6 and power brakes/steering plus AC. I had the idea I can mange it as a daily driver, but some of the body panels are starting to rust through, so no more winter driving until I can get it fixed. (rus...

Re: Westu37's 2004 XC70 build thread......

Is that Manville NJ? The dealers there are pretty good to work with. You might get help from them and get recall done for free, worth looking into unless fuel pumps are your thing. One of our other forum Members is doing exactly that, so stay tuned Yes Manville, NJ. I got the car out in PA though f...

Westu37's 2004 XC70 build thread......

I pulled the trigger and bought my first Volvo. I got myself a 2004 XC70 with a service history of Volvo dealer maintenance to 108k miles including routine oil changes, trans service and t-belt done at 104k. I got it for a fair price and drove it home 10/10/20. I'm a Mechanic by trade so working on ...

Re: Looking to purchase my first Volvo : XC70

I found the car, and will be purchasing it on Saturday. I attached the Carfax. They don't have good Pictures yet.

Re: Looking to purchase my first Volvo : XC70

I would keep your options open for tunes & spend plenty of time reading up on the various tuners websites. Even submit questions to them if anything is unclear. After trying a few different tunes myself, I feel Polestar is a bit overpriced for what you end up with (compared to other tuners software...

Re: Looking to purchase my first Volvo : XC70

I whipped up a little buyer's guide here; https://www.robdiesel.com/wordpress/2016/05/p2-volvo-v70-and-s60-buyers-guide/ Basically, I'd aim for a 2007 XC70 - but test drive it first. If you think you can live with how it drives, you'll like it more and more with a proper tune (I put the Polestar tu...

Re: Looking to purchase my first Volvo : XC70

'07 "Lava Sand Metallic" with genuine Pacific NW pedigree. 84k miles. Tidy. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2007-volvo-xc70/ Nice XC, but I'm in the Northeast US. I'm in the tri-state area, so I figure my search will take me to CT, VT, NH for a longer trip, but I'm looking in NJ, NY, PA for now.

Re: Looking to purchase my first Volvo : XC70

I checked out the 2009 XC70 T6 that was near me. ($6400 with 134k miles) It looks like it was in an accident and not yet repaired. the Right rear wheel is pushed in about an inch, the body is wrinckled in the area between the rear side window and the liftgate. So that one is not worth the buy-in for...

WTB 05-07 XC70 or 09+ XC70 T6

I'm looking to buy a P2 or P3 XC70 for an aprox pricerange of $6k. Preferred under 150k maintained miles. I figure a 09+ T6 is a stretch at this price range, so more likely a 05-07 in similar mileage. In NJ. Willing to travel to Upstate NY, and Eastern PA. If farther I'd need to make arrangements to...
