I'd take it for $450. If it's not worth fixing, I would part it out. That interior is worth half the price, at least!

That is what I thought. The 96 850 in Edmonton looks good and there is another one down here in Calgary. The one here in an NA, not sure about the Edmonton one as no info. The 98 S70 is a turbo T5 SE, but the boss says no more cars for now, so I am consoling myself by tidying the garage after the marathon rebuild last year, catalogued most of the spare parts I have, and have so far built a 2nd workbench (the house will collapse before this will) and am now in the process of fitting a pipe system for compressed air. I have a 11cfm compressor that I have hauled around for 20+ years and never actually had it connected up! Finally have the time to do that, and maybe another car at a later stage. My thought for the car were as a test bed for many of the spare parts I have, in particular the electrical parts, so I don't have to dis-assemble my own car to do the testing.

Ah, well, we can dream.....!

If you need a test car, there's one for sale near me for $300. No title, only other issue is a battery cable. Clean looking '99 S70, not sure if GLT or base.
The obvious issue here is that it's in South Carolina!
