All great thoughts, thank you for everyone's time. I tried to line something up over the weekend and give the car a once over, but owner is dodging or busy or maybe someone beat me to it. To be clear, I am not looking for a driver today. I am looking for something to work on and hope to get better with my skill set and end up with a reward in the end. I am not interested in lifting an engine out or replacing a transmission. I planned on checking the oil, water, plugs and anything else that may look out of place. For $250 and a clean title, how much should I expect? If you are interested, check back and see what the outcome is. Thank you again for putting in your 2 cents.

I would buy it for $250. I bought my 94 850 for $300 and the only thing that my friend said when he basically dumped this car on me and said I owed him 300 was."At least the air conditioner works." I never owned or even worked on a Volvo but I love this damn car! I also stopped mine from shaking. Last week I started smelling fuel and I found a leak at the injector rail. I had to remove the rail to replace the leaking line and in the process found the round blue injector seals were starting to develop cracks and one had a crack completely through. I used sealant that's resistant to fuel to seal the seal until the new ones arrive. Well all I have to say is no more shaking engine and it has power like never before!!!!
